About Adam

Don't worry you don't already have to know how to play, I teach that too! there's lots of places to go to get piano and instrument lessons but anyone will tell you writing and putting together a song is a different skill. My name is Adam S. and I've been playing and creating music since I was old enough to reach the keys, so more than 35 years. I help people of all ages and levels.

I teach not just how to come up with the basis for strong songs but how to split that idea into tracks and parts of a whole arrangement. Learn how to make basslines, chord progressions, program drum parts, and write catchy and emotional melodies and lyrics. I can show you how to fit the whole composition into your genre of choice. I teach how to make Pop, Dance, Hip Hop beats, Jazz, Rock, Country and More.

Also remember when I told you not to worry? For most modern music the playing is minimal. you don't have to be an amazing player, but you do have to know what to play. When you understand how music works you will be able to come and go with the music and realize how many options there are, It's not a strict recipe. This is totally different thinking than reading a sheet of paper. This is understanding, feeling, being the music.

I teach in my recording studio, and we'll be laying down parts on different tracks as we write them. I also rip it up on piano, so if you want to learn to improvise and play all on piano we can do that too. To take your learning to a whole other realm, I teach studio engineering as well, so you can record your multi-track songs yourself! I have 18 years experience as an engineer and have taught over a thousand people one on one. I teach in a way that's about music and sound, not charts, with just enough formal theory thrown in. Experience the joy of understanding music.
