James was an incredible teacher, catering the lessons to my musical interests whilst also working on the fundamentals in creative and interesting ways. I highly recommend getting lessons with him, as I’m still working on things that he showed me!

James is an excellent teacher. From our first meeting, he has listened carefully and understood clearly what I am hoping to achieve on the bass. He has designed and adapted lessons to support my own interests. 


At the same time, James’ incredible musicality and experience has, along with his interactive approach to teaching, encouraged me to develop musically in ways that I had really not even considered. I am enjoying immensely working with James to both develop my ability on the bass and broaden my musical knowledge.

I went to James for lessons after almost a year of hardly playing DB. He very quickly identified my weak areas of technique and helped me address them. This was so effective; we were moving onto other more advanced studies much faster than I had expected. 


James has a vast knowledge of technique and jazz repertoire combined with clear communication skills. I would recommend him to anyone looking to progress on the DB, whatever their level.
