  5. Building your musical vocabulary (music speak) will help you achieve a better interaction with your fellow musicians.
  6. A lesson discount is available for students!!learner plate
  7. Pretending to know-it-all is not an option. Ask your peers questions like: What did you play there? How did you do that? What chords did you play there and why? etc……..question mark

‡ Testimonials ‡ A pen

  • I’ve been attending one-to-one lessons with Jim Clellandfor 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.

  • Performers appeared with their sheet music, and seconds later it was like the group had been playing the pieces all their lives!
    With pianist Jim Clelland’s ability to make each new singer feel comfortable.
