James Barr - Keyboard Teacher
Contact James Barr
James has played keyboards since he was 8 years old, so a long time now!
He studied music at school and college, but didn’t complete his college course at A Level as he was offered a job as a musician on cruise ships. He figured that personal experience was an opportunity not to be missed and that he could catch up on the academic side at his convenience.
He have been fortunate enough to travel the world as a professional musician, playing solo, in a duo and in vairous bands. Being able to do what he loves, having the advantage of being paid and the experience of travelling the world, meeting other musicians and seeing other cultures from 17 years old was a fantastic experience.
Closer to home, James has played in venues all over the UK including Army/RAF bases, hotels, bars, pubs, parties and theatres, each presenting their own challenges.
James is CRB checked and primarily teaches from home, although arrangements can be made for lessons to be carried out elsewhere.
James currently uses: Korg Triton LE workstation, Roland XP-80, Yamaha CS6X, Roland AX-7 as well as many sound modules.
