Book professional piano lessons with local based teacher James Cuddy.
Hello! My name is James and I am a professional piano tutor located in Edinburgh.
I offer high quality piano tuition in the Edinburgh area.
I like to maintain a high level of tuition for every single lesson I teach.
I have experience in both teaching children & adults & will personalise your lesson structure accordingly.
I love a wide range of music & would be happy to teach you the genres that you love.
I play a wide range of instruments & would be more than happy to help you learn other instruments as well.
My lessons are personalised to your own goals and musical tastes. Lessons are available in half-hour slots.
I offer half-hour lessons to all my students because I feel that this is the best option when it comes to learning. Learning in small doses will help you improve at a higher rate.
I am a multi-instrumentalist who holds a 1st class degree in popular music and a MA in music therapy. I have years of working with children in a variety of contexts. My approach to music-making and teaching centers around the relationship and joint music-making. Music is learned through interaction and being challenged by a mentor.
Electric and acoustic guitars are my first instruments, yet I can also play and teach the piano and have experience as a trumpet player in orchestras, brass bands, wind bands and big bands.
As well as a vast amount of experience in teaching adults and children I also have experience working directly with children who have learning difficulties, ASD and behavioral problems.
I have been a part of many musical ensembles, choirs, orchestras, wind bands, big bands, brass bands, rock groups, and the duo's from a very young age.
I take the majority of my lessons from my home studio in the EH9 1JB area of Edinburgh. This is a great place to learn where you can feel comfortable whilst learning. My full address will be disclosed when you book your first lesson.
