Biography

Study with me and become the best guitarist you can be! Whether you want to learn the basics, start a band, or become the next Jimi Hendrix, I can help you out. Lessons are student led and the learner sets their own goals to achieve so they can get the most satisfaction out of playing, and progress in the direction they want to. Lessons with me are fun and friendly, and beginners start playing songs from the first lesson. Classes are student-led, so learners get the most satisfaction from learning, and set their own goals to achieve. I'm a professional session guitarist, bassist and music tutor. I have been awarded a distinction for a Master of Music degree, a First Class Honours BA degree in Music, and am fully DBS checked. I teach both bass and guitar, and can offer guidance and instruction in using guitar effects pedals and music technology. I play and teach all styles and genres of popular and contemporary music, and teach both classical and popular music theory. I have experience in playing professional festivals such as Latitude, Secret Garden Party, and Green Man; and at large concert venues like the Alexandra Palace, and the Electric Ballroom. I have played with artists including the B.B.C. Concert Orchestra and Maverick Sabre, and supported professional artists such as the Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Wavves, and Focus.

Testimonials

  • Adam is a very supportive and patient tutor. He quickly picks up on a student's core interests and helps them to flourish in that area. Adam taught me from a complete beginner at guitar to around a grade 5. He was able to teach me a broad variety of musical styles, from rock and pop to jazz and classical. I couldn't recommend Adam more as a tutor, he will be very encouraging of your musical taste, and not only develop your knowledge of practical guitar playing but will help you with music theory and suggest many bands and musicians for you to listen to.

  • Adam has been teaching me bass guitar for the past year and a half. He's really helped me with getting my head around improvisation. Coming from a classical background this wasn't something that I learnt at all, he's provided me with great techniques, exercises and the theory behind improvisation in order to aid me in improving my improv. Adam's teaching is great all round, from teaching me new genres, getting me through grades and teaching me the theory.

  • Fabulous teacher, no pressure, goes at my pace, is very encouraging. I have learned loads very quickly. He is also very talented and enthusiastic about music which spills over into his teaching. I can imagine him teaching all ages and abilities really well.
