Our location

James teaches from his awesome home studio, just one mile south of Derby centre (DE23 8PJ). The studio is beautifully equipped with amps, guitars, recording software (for more advanced students) as well as, perhaps most importantly, very comfortable chairs! If you are travelling to the studio by car there is on-street parking available right outside the house, day or night. If you are taking a train then the closest stop is Peartree station, which is just a 5-minute walk to the studio. Finally, if you are arriving by bus, the 238, 240 and 38 Sapphire to Randolph Road stop is just a short walk away.

James has been a professional guitar player since the millennium, and in that time he has taught hundreds of students, toured the entire UK with various bands and acts, and graduated with a music degree some years back. James's main focus though is teaching. He loves the challenge of tailoring every single lesson to the specific student. As with all our tutors, James uses our syllabus, but he ensures that it is really brought to life in the lessons. His students absolutely love him, especially as he goes the extra mile outside the lessons to ensure that every students knows exactly what they need to practice.
