James has been songwriting since he was a teenager. Once he started working in his first band he realised that writing songs is a great way of becoming a better musician. James usually song-writes starting from his guitar and  can teach you how to write and develop melodies and arrangements, where to find inspiration (and how to use it), and tricks to improve your songs.

James' has co-written many songs with his band Wildflowers, some of which (100 Personalities and Chemistry) have been featured on the BBC Radio 2 Playlist and gained recognition in the International Songwriting Competition.

Lessons are flexible to the student. If you need the same day each week or need to change it up, it's no problem! We can work out a timetable that fits around you and your busy lifestyle.

Please bring your instrument of choice, we have a piano that you can use and lots of guitars, but if you feel more comfortable with your own instrument then bring it along! Also bring any song ideas you have, be it on a laptop, phone or simply written in a notebook.
