COURSE TUTOR

James has been performing regularly and teaching guitar since he was sixteen. Beginning with piano at six years old, James has always learned any instruments he could get his hand on, from saxophones and clarinet to bass and drums. After three years of a Music Performance course at Bath College (Btec and HNC), James went on to study Ethnomusicology (BA Hons) at School of Oriental and African Studies, London University. While studying, James learned to play the Kora (West-African Harp) and Gamelan (Indonesian Orchestra), giving him a keen ear for different styles of musicality and a broader understanding of different interpretations of music theory. James has performed in many bands and in many genres over the past ten years. From a solo ambient loop station based project to psychedelic trip-hop twelve piece band, James has picked up many different techniques as a guitarist.

Over the past ten years, James has performed at festivals such as Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Isle of Wight and Boomtown numerous times and performing constantly in venues around the UK. While his primary bands have been amalgamations of funk, reggae, hip hop and rock, James has performed with various DJs and Visual Artists while also engaged as a session musician for countless performers. James enjoys spending time in recording studios, getting involved with the production and mastering of albums he has been a part of. When not performing or teaching, James likes to work on songwriting, either for his own bands, collaborations or for future projects.

James is a good guitar teacher for those that would like to learn completely from square one or improve their playing and even develop their own sound. For fingerpicking folk artists, funky chicken-scratch players, acoustic guitar-body-bashers and effects pedal powerhouses – James wants to be there to help!
