Use any device, no expensive new purchases necessary

Learning online is as easy as picking up the phone. We will use a free app called Zoom, available on any device; chosen for it's features which suit music lessons. Many students have their lessons simply by placing their tablet on their music rest/music stand in front of them. Over time I will help you adjust your set up so that you get the most out of your lessons.

Lessons with me are available in English, French, Spanish or German.

J'enseigne en anglais, français, espagnol ou allemand.

Existe la opción de recibir las clases de música conmigo en los siguientes idiomas: Inglés, Francés, Español o Alemán.

Die Unterrichtstunden mit mir können auf English, Fransözisch, Spanisch oder Deutsch gegeben werden.

*Lessons longer than 60 minutes may also be possible. Please enquire for details.

My series of multi-lingual, educational videos on my Youtube channel. Covering the mindset required for improvisation, the process of becoming a jazz musician, tips for practice amongst other things. Happy viewing!

Experienced, Qualified teacher: Mmus (Distinction); Bmus (Hons); DipABRSM.

15 years of teaching experience.

1. Book a free trial lesson (optional) 

Get in contact with me using the contact form on this website, or email enquiries@jamesbuckham.co.uk

 

We will arrange a time for a call. If you are uncertain about using Zoom, I am happy to call you using a phone line or another video conferencing app and help you set up Zoom for later use.

 

The trial lesson is for use to get to know each other a little and for me to find out what you hope to get out of the lessons. (And mum/dad's hopes in the case of children!).

 

We will also discuss how often you would like the lessons. There is no charge for this session and it should take roughly 20 minutes.

2. Get going with your lessons!

If you would like to continue after your trial, or are already certain that want the lessons without one, I will send you a link to a recurring meeting on Zoom. This will allow you to join all your future lessons at the times that we agree upon.

 

Most students choose to have a lesson once week; however this is entirely up to you. The nature of lessons online brings with it the advantage of flexilibility! I just operate a 48 hour cancellation policy.

 

Get started now on your journey to becoming the real pianist of your dreams!
