- What kind of experience do you have?
Teaching - My mother is a highly experienced piano teacher. I have taught a number of her students for short periods of time, mainly before exams. I have taught a wide range, from beginners to those preparing for Grade 8. In Manchester, I am half way through a 2-year teaching course including work with young school children.
Performance - I have performed both solo and with orchestra on several occasions. Performed a concerto with orchestra in Hull City Hall before studying as a student. I also perform regularly as a soloist and chamber musician in recitals in and around Manchester. Have had masterclasses with such prominent performers as Philippe Cassard and Martin Roscoe.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
This has already been approved as a condition for entering the College.

As a child, I learned off my mother up until Grade 8 at age 13. Then with honorary Moscow Conservatoire graduate, Irina Glushenkova until age 18. Currently studying at RNCM with John Gough.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
Currently I teach a couple of young students and an adult pupil who was keen to take up piano again and is doing very well. Have recently finished teaching another adult student, a young school child who was a complete beginner (part of the teaching course), and music theory to a young violin student.
â€œAdam has a warm and friendly style of teaching, and takes an approach that is adaptive and conscious of your particular needs and end goal. Adam is both passionate and skilled in Piano, and this shows in his teaching, and I would not hesitate to recommend”
