I make my lessons fun and practical, looking at the theory behind the music as well as performing the music. My teaching style would be ideal for anyone starting out in music looking to learn essential basic keyboard and theory skills. Advanced players looking to learn more about score reading, arranging and general theory would also benefit from my knowledge!
I have played in many Jazz bands, chamber music ensembles, theatre shows and choirs! I am also a grade 8 standard Classical Singer with lots of experience singing and accompanying in many styles. Musical theatre is a big interest for me and I have written and produced two original musicals. I always love to challenge myself with exciting projects!

I had my first lessons in jazz singing with Adam. He introduced me to a lot of cool music and showed me how to vocally improvise! Great teacher! Would definitely recommend!!
Adam has worked for our record label on many great projects. He has done some excellent session playing as well as writing some fantastic musical arrangements for our artist's songs. He really knows his stuff!
