James Clarke

Are you keen to learn on guitar tuitions around central London or further afield? Would you like to improvise and take your current skills up a few notches? Do you need guidance from a seasoned musician with excellent attention to detail to prepare for an exam/audition? Maybe you just want a charismatic and friendly tutor for your child? I can certainly help!

With over 11 years of teaching experience, I teach students of all ages and my thorough, fun and inspiring one-to-one lessons will help you achieve your goals and break through your musical plateaus. I teach all styles of guitar from beginner to advanced with a key focus on gaining the tools to pursue any genre you wish.

I have been performing for over 15 years and graduated with an MPerf in Jazz Performance (Dist.). From 2014-18, I performed around the world in orchestras on board various cruise ships and now at various clubs and musicals in London and the UK. I’m passionate about music and aim to inspire bright young minds to nurture an equal passion and expand their repertoire. I tailor my lessons to match your unique learning pace and goals and design my sessions to be pragmatic and enjoyable. I believe that excitement is critical and, as an eclectic player, I do my best to add creativity so you look forward to the next session.

I’m fully committed to DBS Checked. I take tremendous pride in what I do and in helping my students become enthusiastic and confident players. Moreover, I constantly look at ways to improve my services and also offer students 24/7 email support. Along with reasonable prices, I offer a 10% discount when you book a block of 10 lessons.

If you’re ready to get started and learn more than you ever expected, please contact me to schedule a convenient time to discuss your goals and we’ll take it from there. Hope to hear from you soon!

  1. Guitar lessons during Covid-19

    I have been having lessons with James for the past 18 months (at first in person, then via Zoom during Covid19 lockdown). Despite being a total beginner, with very limited musical ability, James has enabled me to progress from playing basic chords, to actually being able to play numerous songs with increasing complexity. I would highly recommend James as a tutor if you are just starting your guitar playing journey!

  2. Inspirational Teacher!

    My son has been having guitar lessons with James for a year now and we have been extremely pleased with the progress he has made. He has been able to play several songs, leant a great deal of theory and is now confident to play more complex music pieces. James is very motivating, patient and creative music teacher who has inspired our son into loving learning to play the guitar.
