My name is James, I'm 29 years old and have been playing Electric Guitar for 15 years, and am also an experienced Drummer and Bass player. I have studied music composition (writing) and also have a degree in music production (recording).
I have played in original bands around Brisbane my whole life (including; Tomb Of Doom, Ape Farm, Signal The Firing Squad, Aversions Crown). Although heavy music is my forte, I also write and cover lots of Indie, Classical, Pop and Soundtrack music. I love it all and I have an eye for detail whilst also understanding what it is like to pick up an instrument for the very first time.
My main experience in teaching is from teaching my Dad how to play guitar from scratch. I helped him fix up a broken Electric Guitar and then helped him on the way to learning songs from his favourite bands such as Creedence Clearwater Revival, Van Morrison, Cat Stevens and Dire Straits. I have taught many types and ages of students, and am always happy to see someone who wants to learn.
I have always loved showing people how easy it can be to get on your way and understanding theory and how to play, however, if you want to get to that NEXT level, I have also designed my own exercises to get your fingers doing things far beyond what you could imagine yourself doing.
