About James

- What kind of experience do you have?

I currently teach bass guitar and double bass at a secondary school. This post has given me valuable experience in teaching children of different ages and abilities. I have worked as an assistant tutor on the Trinity Jazz Summer School ((concealed information) for two years, which has enabled me to gain experience in teaching all ages of musicians.

As a performer I have performed at such prestigious venues as Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, The Royal Festival Hall, SHUNT, The Vortex Jazz Club, and Indig02. I have also appeared on television, performing at the 02 arena.

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

Yes.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Trinity College of Music, London.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My current students range from the age of 12 to 16. Some of my students have been playing for less than a year, and some are preparing for their grade 8 exam. Even though I teach a broad ability range, all my students enjoy varied lessons based around playing songs, rather than being limited to exercises. This makes learning music more enjoyable.
