James Fox's Music Tuition

Rotherham and Sheffield


Spring Holidays!

Cornwall Daffodils

Well done to all students this term for tackling some impressive music and showing real commitment to their instruments! You've all earned a well-deserved break, so enjoy the time off. Please try your best to keep up with the work you've been set, ready to show me your musical skills after the Spring holiday!

It's been a fantastic term and everyone has worked very hard, indeed! I'm now looking forward to taking a short break from teaching and enjoying some quiet time in the fresh countryside air.

See you all next term!

Happy New Year!

I’m currently taking on new students, so if your musical skills would benefit from a bit of fine-tuning, please call 07731816132 to arrange lessons!

Welcome back to a new school term, I hope you have had a fantastic break and have been practising hard. I’m really excited to be back!

This term will be a busy one for many students as they prepare for their Summer examinations. Rockschool’s new syllabus is proving very popular with guitarists at the moment, especially with the inclusion of what were titled ‘Hot Rock’ pieces in Rockschool’s previous syllabi. These ‘Hot Rock’ pieces are well-known pieces of contemporary music, arranged for examination! This ingenious idea has many of my grade 3 guitarists wanting to learn Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana!

It gets better: Brilliantly, students no longer need to buy a separate book to access these pieces - they’re included in the main examination book!

I’m keen to start working on some excellent music with all my students this year - let’s make 2019 a year of high achievements!

October Half Term - Music Tuition

October Half Term
It's been a fantastic first half term with lots of students enjoying getting stuck into their new pieces and beginning to explore fresh new exam syllabi.

The half term is a chance for some students to rest and take a short break from school but it's also a great opportunity to enjoy music. I'm encouraging students to listen to pieces of music, bands or composers they've never encountered before, from the likes of Brazilian guitarist Guinga, to Rage Against the Machine and pieces by Beethoven and Debussy - ask me for your own personalised recommendations!

With the weather turning cooler we find ourselves staying indoors, so why not put down the Xbox or Playstation controller and grab the guitar or plant yourself at the piano for a while?
