James has studied music since the age of 8 and has been professional for 14 years. His career has taken him around the world touring America, China, and all across Europe playing a number of different instruments and styles of music. Because James plays more than one instrument, his career outside of teaching has led him down many different paths. This versatility has aided James to teach a number of different styles from Classical music, Jazz and Rock, and Pop music.
James Started Playing the Clarinet when he was 8 years old and graduated with a distinction in Grade 8 at the age of 18. Alongside his classical education, he always listened to and loved playing Jazz music. He started to play the saxophone during his teenage years and using the techniques he had learned on the clarinet, adapted himself into a proficient Jazz Saxophonist
Alongside the woodwind background, James also started playing the guitar at the age of 14 and started playing in rock bands. With a love for modern music, James progressed very quickly at the guitar and managed to get a place at the Academy of Contemporary Music at 18 to study his degree. He learned a number of styles of music there from some world-famous guitarists (Guthrie Govan, Jamie Humphries, Mike Caswell). After spending the next three years dedicating hard work to both of his crafts James started getting jobs touring with Artists around the UK and Europe (Bad Company, Juan Zelada, Nicole Scherzinger, Pixie Lott, Leona Lewis).
