About Me

Hi there, my name is James and I am a Private Music Teacher.

I have been teaching Music now for more than ten years and have a Bachelor's Degree from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music as well as having completed the AMEB Music Syllabus on multiple instruments.

James Harris Music offers lessons on a wide range of instruments to complete beginners as well as advanced students. Early Childhood Learning, Learning Disabilities, Special Needs, HSC Music, Adult Beginners, AMEB Exams, Trinity Exams, Ensemble Playing, School Band Prep, University Auditions, and Music/Band Competitions are all catered for. Lessons are not limited to one style, but can be designed to the meet the needs of anyone wishing to study any style of music from Classical, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Pop, Rock, World, Metal etc.

It is my view that music programs should be tailored to meet the needs and desires of each individual student. Music offers a great path to master many life skills and practice discipline whilst having a whole lot of fun in the process!

I look forward to meeting you soon!

Drum lessons are an amazing experience which can be approached in variety of different ways. I am happy teaching complete beginners at any age right through to advanced players who may already be playing some gigs but wish to refine their technique etc. My view is to build a course structure that is tailored to the individuals needs and musical wants as well as meeting the outcomes and milestones I believe important for a good drum education.

Over the past couple of years I have been using the new AMEB Rockschool Exams method which offers a great progressive method for drummers and other instrumentalists to follow a musically relevant and flexible course to better their playing. A lot of my current students are keenly using this new resource.

Please feel free to message me for more information.

Guitar lessons can begin around 5 years old and continue on to any age. Our lessons can be structured to suit your goals whether you wish to simply learn your favourite songs by ear and reading tab, or whether you want to dive into the world of music theory, harmony and notation. We use a variety of exam syllabus for those wishing to undertake exams, including the new AMEB Rockschool Syllabus which has programs for both lead guitar and rhythm guitar, electric and acoustic applications. Please contact me via the chat if you have an further questions and/or would like to book your free trial lesson today.

Music Theory Lessons and courses are available in a variety of syllabus. I have experience with AMEB and Trinity as well as having completed a Bachelor’s degree with extensive study of Classical and Jazz Music Theory, Harmony and Aural Training.

Lessons are conducted both on an individual basis and in a group setting where we have more than one student at the same level with similar learning rates.

We have a long history of delivering successful lessons and tuition in Piano. Lessons can begin for students as young as 3 years old and can continue on to any age.

The lessons can be formally structured around an exam syllabus such as AMEB, Rockschool, and Trinity etc. Our studio is listed as a Private Studio with the AMEB and as a result we are very happy to say we can offer AMEB Piano Exams to our students in the environment which they learn without the need to travel to the city for exams.

As well as formal exam based lessons we are also happy to stucture our teaching in a more flexible way for those students who wish to learn and enjoy this amazing instrument in their own way. We teach all styles of music from Classical Music, Jazz, Pop and all Contemporary Music.

Please send us a message through this page to enquire about booking your free trial!
