James is very encouraging (he won't let you get away with thinking you can't do something!), and he's helped me start to make sense of years of random bits of music theory and a lot of self-directed learning that I didn't always completely understand before. Definitely recommended!

I'm a pianist who has mucked about with a guitar for a few years by myself, not making much progress. After a couple of months with James I've really come a long way, both in terms of technique and style, and understanding the different ways you can think about playing. Great teacher - I enjoy our lessons immensely.
