Ability Levels: Beginners to Intermediate


Hello! My name is James and I'm a 25 year old Music Therapist, guitarist, drummer and percussionist living in Brighton. Although I have no formal qualifications, I have displayed the high standard of musicianship (grade 8 or equivalent) required in order to gain a place on MA Music Therapy course that I have completed this year.

My guitar playing styles include rhythmic playing of chords, fingerpicking style playing and improvising using knowledge of scales. My influences vary from blues and rock to folk and pop. I tend to compose and learn songs by ear, and love to teach people the joy of improvising and having fun using the guitar.

I have also been playing the drums now for over 10 years, and can teach many different rhythms, patterns and rudiments to those wishing to learn.

While studying for the MA Music Therapy course, I have experienced working in a special school with learning disabled and autistic adolescents. I have also learnt a lot about music can be used to communicate with people. Although I am offering guitar tuition, I can also use many other instruments during the teaching sessions to accompany and enjoy playing together.

I currently have lots of availability, both during the day and in the evenings. I currently have the space at home to teach guitar, but do not currently have a drum kit set up so I would need to come to you or arrange to meet in a rehearsal space to use a drum kit. You can contact me either using the phone number below or by emailing [email protected]

I have a full up to date DBS check and professional indemnity insurance.
