About Adam

I am an educator and performer with over a decade of experience. I have taught guitar, piano, music production and audio programming to students of all ages up to the graduate student level. I particularly love children and enjoy teaching them - they seem to enjoy having lessons with me too.

I am committed to a holistic teaching philosophy that understands music as an activity that is intimately connected with other parts of life. I always encourage my students to listen deeply, become aware of their bodies, and practice self-care, all of which are crucial elements in a musician's practice. I also have a long history of engagement and activism in LGBTQ+ communities and am committed to making my teaching spaces welcoming to these people especially.

I have an MFA in Music Performance and Literature (Mills College). And I have experience as a musicianship instructor at Mills College (Ear training, keyboard skills, composition and analysis). I have been a private guitar and piano instructor for over a decade.

I am also an experienced producer - I make hip hop and electronic beats with Ableton, Pro Tools, Reaper and other software and am a trained recording engineer.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

Bachelor of Arts (Honors) (Music) - New York University
Master of Fine Arts - Mills College

Both of these degrees required extensive writing, as well as critical and analytical skills.

General Music

I completed a Master of Fine Arts in Music Performance and Literature at Mills College in Oakland, CA in May 2016. While I was there, I taught an undergraduate musicianship class that encompassed both theory and performance. I have been a music instructor for almost a decade now, and have taught students of all ages.

I have experience teaching the following subjects:
Guitar / keyboard performance
Music theory
Music composition
Electronic music skills - production, recording, audio programming etc

Guitar

I have been a private guitar instructor for almost a decade, and have taught students aged 5-65.

I have worked in Singapore, New York City, Oakland and Philadelphia, privately and in affiliation with music schools or universities.

My teaching methods are holistic and encompass physiology and technique, mental discipline, practice as a life skill and improvisation as a central path to learning.
