"James is a fantastic teacher who ensures his students are able to reach their full potential.  I have been learning the guitar for just over a year and obtained a distinction in my grade 2 and (in the same year) am ready to take my grade 3 exam.  This was made possible by James' calm, patient and thorough approach.  His lessons are very enjoyable and I have covered a variety of musical styles as well as the exam syllabus" - Oliver


"James is a talented musician who has really motivated and inspired my teenage son to learn the guitar; after 12 months tuition elsewhere he was bored and frustrated.  He has progressed enormously with James and achieved a very high mark in his grade 2 exam, as well as learning to play other tracks he is interested in.  James has taught him acoustic and electric guitar, and has also taught my husband (who was an absolute beginner) the basics of playing the bass guitar.  I know they both feel that James' relaxed and friendly, but structured approach have made all the difference.  We would not hesitate to recommend his as a teacher" - Melanie
