James - Hayes - Guitar

Methodology

Guitar/sitar/musicianship tutor in Bromley

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach guitar/sitar and musicianship skills. I can teach all styles of guitar, sight-reading, how to use amps/effects etc as well as professional advice on becoming a professional musician, where to study, what to study and other career choices.

I also teach sitar/Indian music which I have studied both in the uk and India.

My unique skills are in Indian Music and improvisation and I can teach Indian Music to all musicians and singers. I am also developing a hybrid approach to the teaching of musicianship skills, particularly aural and improvisation skills using a mixture of jazz theory and Indian music theory. This can be of real benefit to students that don't respond well to traditional teaching methods and for classical musicians who want to get away from written music and connect more with the music they are playing.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

BA(Hons) Jazz Studies : Leeds College of Music
MMus : University of Leeds
PgDip (Jazz) : Guildhall School of Music and Drama
15 years private tuition in sitar/Indian Classical Music

- How much do you charge?

I have an introductory lesson rate of £20 for an hour after that I charge £40 for an hour or £20 for half an hour.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from home in Bromley, Kent which is easily reachable from Central London, Orpington, Tunbridge Wells, Croydon, Crystal Palace etc. At the moment I am afraid I am unable to travel.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have many years of experience as a professional session guitarist. I have toured and worked with many artists and have played on 18 West End shows and a number of TV shows.

I have studied sitar and Indian music for the past 20 years and for the past 12 years have been a student of Pandit Arvind Parikh who is the senior-most disciple of the late Ustad Vilayat Khan.

I have taught/given workshops at the ACM in Guildford, Royal Northern College of Music, Salford College, K College in Tonbridge and currently teach at Brunel University.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

I have studied at Leeds College of Music, University of Leeds and Guildhall School of Music and Drama and studied with Mike Walker, John Parricell, Pete Churchill and Simon Purcell.

My initial sitar/Indian music studies were at Leeds College of Music with Dharambir Singh and since 1999 I have been studying with Pandit Arvind Parikh.
