My name is James Bennett (27) and I am a professional musician with over 10 years of teaching experience (CTLLS qualified). As a performing musician I have diverse experience, both live and in the studio.
Whilst I primarily consider myself to be a guitarist, I have had just as much experience both singing and playing upright/electric bass in bands, including my Jazz/Latin band 'the Mojo Cats'.
I am constantly learning new ideas and currently very focussed on pop, rock and jazz, as well as spanish/classical guitar playing. However I love all music and enjoy nothing more than overcoming new challenges and performing with other good musicians.
