Hi, I'm James.
I'm a working musician who is passionate about the violin, its technique, and most importantly its sound!
I have a bachelors degree in music from UNE in NSW where I discovered a love of improvising in various forms including Gypsy Jazz and free improv. During this time I also achieved 8th grade in the AMEB practical exam. Currently I am studying Jazz and Improvisation on Piano at the VCA here in Melbourne.
I'd like to meet you where you're at, no matter where that is and engage in developing a musical language through social interaction. I'd like to listen, correct where necessary, but most importantly facilitate you in your own journey - be it traditional Irish tunes or other forms of folk or improvising. I'm a strong advocate of aural transmission, but can certainly help reading sheet music if that is preferred.
If this sounds like something you're interested in, please don't hesitate to contact me.
