Hello I'm James, I've been playing guitar for 15 years and have a degree  in Music Production. I currently teach private electric & acoustic guitar lessons in Derby as well as local schools, I can travel to my students as well as teach from my home in Derby, DE23 8EB.



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. It's useful for 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.

        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.
