James leads a busy career as both Co-Principal of the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Principal clarinet of the Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields. When not performing, he teaches as a Clarinet Professor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where he once studied with teachers such as Andrew Webster, Nick Carpenter, Barnaby Robsonand Joy Farrall.

James continues to play as Guest Principal in other orchestras too, including the London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Royal Northern Sinfonia.

James's work with the Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields means that he also has many opportunities to perform chamber music on a regular basis, often with the Music Director, Joshua Bell. He has also worked with the London Sinfonietta, London Conchord Ensemble, Irish Chamber Orchestra, and the Philharmonia Soloists. As a soloist, James recently performed the Howard Blake Clarinet Concerto, with Sir Neville Marriner conducting.

James also gives masterclasses, as well as orchestral and chamber coaching sessions in some of the best music institutions in the country, including the Royal College of Music, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Southbank Sinfonia, and for the educational departments in the London Symphony Orchestra and Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields.
