ABOUT US

JBM provides high quality instrumental tuition and music education taught by industry professionals.

Our focus is teaching modern music and contemporary music theory in a relaxed and supportive environment – forget Mozart, you’re more likely to find Jimi Hendrix, Adele, and Elton John amongst our library!

All of our teachers are highly regarded and experienced performing musicians, and have been chosen by James Baker for their industry experience, musical knowledge, and communication skills.

Simply put, when you’re learning at JBM, you’re learning from the pro’s.

WHO DO WE TEACH

We teach beginners through to advanced players from the ages of 8 up – yep, we teach adults too!

THE 9 LESSON TERM

As our staff are working musicians, they occasionally have to take leave for gigs, tours, and recording sessions. To accomodate this we teach 9 lessons scheduled throughout the NSW school term – when a teacher takes leave we simply reschedule that weeks lessons for “Week 10” of the school term.

WHERE ARE WE LOCATED

6 Fairview St, Kooringal, NSW 2650

OUR STAFF

PIANO/KEYBOARDS & MUSIC TECHNOLOGYJames Baker

James Baker is an award winning musical director and accomplished contemporary keyboardist. From recording sessions, to live gigs, cabarets, and music theatre, James’ wealth of experience shines through in his playing and his interactions with students.

With a keen understanding of industry required skills, James endeavours to help students understand modern keyboard techniques, functional chord theory, and improvisation to allow them to flourish into the best possible contemporary musicians.

James works with students to bring out their personal musicality. Whilst he works with every student to develop a solid note reading literacy, there is a much heavier focus on musical theory principles – specifically the interaction of melody, harmony, and rhythm. In short, his experience as a jazz pianist places less focus on the “dots on the page”, and more on creating beautiful, soulful music.
