James Hashman is currently teaching Music to grades 7-12 at Matthew C. Perry High School in Iwakuni, Japan. He received his Masters in Music Education from the University of Washington. Jim believes a teacher who truly finds joy in his/her profession understands the art of teaching. From his early childhood fantasies of leading a group of musicians, to fulfilling that dream in front of school groups, to the opportunity to stand in front of colleagues and lead meetings, he continues to enjoy his life-long journey as an educator. His message to teachers is be an artist. "Be passionate about what you do. Strive to improve because you enjoy the art so much that you want to produce it at your highest level of personal achievement."
