Learn music with me and become the best musician you can be!

Learners set their own goals so they can get the most enjoyment out of learning music, and become the musician they want to become. My teaching has a strong emphasis on improvisation and composition so that students are encouraged to become musicians rather than solely music students.

I teach guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar. Lessons are available for the following levels: beginner, intermediate, advanced, proficient, for children, 1st year, 2nd year, 3rd year, 4th year, graduate student
I give lessons in person at my home, the student's home or meeting in public locations.
I give lessons by webcam.

Adam's Experience

I am well qualified and have been awarded a distinction for a Master of Music Degree, first class for a BA (Hons) in Music, and a Distinction for a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Music Performance. I also have extensive professional performance experience.
