James Danderfer (M.Mus., McGill University, 2011) is a clarinetist, saxophonist, composer and recording artist based in Vancouver, BC.

Being a professional musician requires a diverse range of skills and I've been fortunate to share my experiences and insight with students of every level and ability. Helping students find their individual paths and grow as artists has been a meaningful part of my career for over 20 years.
