About Adam

I am an excellent musician with a vast amount of performance and teaching experience. I am a patient teacher who loves to see my students grow with thoughtful encouragement.

I'm not just a teacher. Since the age of 12, I have kept an active performing career. I am a guitarist, composer, performer, and author of a book about playing guitar. I'm also signed to Ropeadope Records.

With over three decades years of performance experience, and 27 years of teaching experience, I know what you need to know as a beginner, able to teach you what you want to know as an intermediate or advanced student.

I can not only teach you guitar, I can teach you Ear Training, Music Theory (so you KNOW what you are playing), and beginner electric bass. Jazz and improvisation is my specialty, however I can help you out with any style of music.

Contact me right away to start the process.

Thanks,
Adam
