Vocal rehearsal session
- A One-hour session is available for setting the correct keys for your songs and routining the songs as you want them

- I’ve been attending one-to-one lessons with Jim for over 10 years. I have learned so much more from Jim than I did completing my honours music degree. Jim’s grasp of musical harmony, arranging skills and knowledge of piano styles such as jazz, pop, blues gospel is second to none. In addition he is an incredibly patient supportive teacher with extensive experience teaching beginners. Furthermore, he is fully aware of the school music curriculum including SQA exam requirements.
