Personal Description:

Hello and thanks for stopping by!
Iím James, a Piano and Music Theory tutor based in South-West London. I consider piano to be my primary instrument, however my first love was the guitar and Iíve amassed ten years of experience between the two instruments, four of these years based in London. During this time, I graduated from The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance with a First Class Honours and have performed in various bands and venues throughout London. Some of my proudest moments include heading the unsigned artists night at Ronnieís Bar above Ronnie Scotts, a music industry night at ĎTape Londoní in Oxford Circus, performing and being interviewed live on ĎResonance FMí Radio Station and performing at Kensington Roof Gardens for an EP launch.

Tutoring Approach:

I specialise in Jazz and music theory and my main areas of expertise are jazz harmony, chords/chord voicings, comping, improvisation and soloing techniques. I donít limit my teaching just to jazz however, Iím also available to teach other genres such as pop, rock, blues and funk, and cover activities such as ear training, songwriting/composition and sight-reading.

I have a relaxed and informal teaching style and cater my lessons to the goals and wishes of the student, whether you wish to become a full-time professional musician or simply learn how to play some of your favourite tunes. I am a very strong believer in creativity and freedom of expression when it comes to playing, so I tend to teach the general fundamental Ďrulesí of music before encouraging students to break them (when appropriate!) to fully develop their own musical voice.
I use a mixture of my own material and published books.
