Instruments: Brass

Personal Message

Music has been a key part of my life from the age of 8 and it becoming my career has been a dream come true.

I'm an enthusiastic teacher who enjoys the rewarding challenge of developing musical knowledge and ability, without sacrificing the technical basics needed. Every individual is different, and I make sure my teaching reflects that. 


"As a first instrument, trumpet is not the easiest to get started with but James has helped Sam (8) in only a term and a half, to not only enjoy his practice but also make good positive notes and start to read and play from sheet music" - Nick Friend

"Christopher has always enjoyed playing the cornet but his enthusiasm has grown significantly since James started teaching him. He's always keen to show us what he has learnt in lessons. James is an excellent teacher and he definitely recommend him" - Alison Dobbs 

"My son thoroughly enjoys his trumpet lessons with James. James is so calm and patient. He is positive in his teaching methods, motivational, and truly inspirational to my son" - Ruth Wardle
