James Paul is a 31 year-old professional guitar player and educator with a BMus (First Class Hons) in Jazz Performance from the New Zealand School of Music.  After this he had a fixed term on scholarship studying at the University of North Carolina.

James is now offering a professional online teaching service for students that achieves more efficient and productive learning. The student will receive all course material as online documents and a one on one lesson via skype which can be recorded and given to the student after the lesson. The student is encouraged to return to the recording and material between each lesson to recap.

James is a very active member of the Wellington music scene and can often be heard playing with various members of groups such as ‘The Black Seeds’, ‘Trinity Roots’, ‘The Phoenix Foundation’, and ‘Twinset’. James has also spent time on cruise ship contracts where he was the in-house guitar player. ¬†With 10 years’ teaching experience both privately and in primary and secondary schools James brings enormous energy, dedication and a fresh approach to guitar tuition.

Teaching Info

Structured and thorough lessons with a flexible and fluid teaching style. Strong emphasis on a wide range of different guitar styles as well as scales and chord knowledge. After 10 years of teaching I have realised that the productivity of music tuition can be amplified by taking advantage of online learning systems that are easy, effective, and better for the environment. My students have have access to all of their learning resources online and can recap the lesson across the week to increase and guarantee more efficient progress.
