        James is a very punctual and consistent in his teaching, I have been taking with him for 2-3 months and has never missed a lesson and never been late, he is extremely reliable and very patient, he will always try different ways to teach and always adapts to situations which makes him a excellent teacher. I would recommend him to anyone who wishes to learn.

I vary my teaching approach for each student, the core of my approach comes from showing you how the music is made, not just how to play it. A grasp on music theory is a very useful and fun tool for any guitar player, and I will add what I feel are the most useful elements of theory into my lessons. It's important to me to get an idea of your goals, be they little or large, so that I can get a feel for what sort of approach would allow you to achieve those goals.
