In his hometown of Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, James and his friends obsessed over music from a young age. At the age of fourteen he joined various established bands with skill levels much above his. He formed his trade striving to be like the musicians around him.
At age eighteen, the band ‘Blackjack’ was formed. With James at the helm, the band went on to headline many successful UK tours and music festivals. Playing to people in the thousands was a truly remarkable experience.
After the band went their separate ways, James decided to focus on his playing ability and knowledge of the guitar. He turned to renowned guitar tutor ‘Jimi Savage’, who guided him through his grades with the University of West London.
James has great belief in the grade program set up by the University, as he has first hand experience of just how successful it can be. It truly helped him thrive as a guitarist.
James’ true passion for sharing knowledge has lead him to become a registered tutor with the University. He can now guide students to a healthy and happy guitar life, in which they gain worldwide recognized qualifications.
