Personal Description:

Hi there, I'm James and I am a graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and of the Royal Northern College of Music. Originally I herald from Whitley Bay on the North East coast near Newcastle upon Tyne, where I attended the Sage Gateshead Weekend School. Whilst at the Royal Conservatoire I was a student of Robert Irvine, and at the RNCM I studied with Victoria Simonsen. Additionally I have received masterclass tuition from Johannes Goritzki, Alexander Baillie, Miklos Perenyi, Hannah Roberts and Louise Hopkins amongst others. As a performer I have experience performing with the Halle, Opera North, BBC Philharmonic, Orchestra of Scottish Opera, Royal Scottish National Orchestra and BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, as well as the Dunedin Consort as a baroque player.

Tutoring Experience:

I have around 10 years of experience teaching in both Glasgow and Edinburgh, providing tailor made tuition to a range of ages and experiences. Students have ranged from children and students to adult learners and retirees.

Tutoring Approach:

My tuition is very much tailored to the type of learning experience desired by the pupil, I can offer a casual learning experience for those wishing to play for fun, or if you are more serious about taking your playing to the next level, I can offer a more intensive programme aimed at improving technique, musicianship and theoretical knowledge. Lesson scheduling can be flexible, and within reason I am happy to travel to you for teaching.
