Education & training

Coming from an ordinary state school background, when he went to music college at 18 Adam was totally unprepared for what was in store for him. This extraordinary other world of elite musicians was magical, inspiring and terrifying all at the same time.

Surprisingly, although surrounded by excellence and privilege, Adam didn’t always feel like he was surrounded by the music, art and creativity that he might have expected, or was looking for. Adam was humbled and learnt so much from the experience, he suspects far more than many who were awarded far greater plaudits than him at the time.

These experiences were to inform everything that Adam does and stands for today.

Skills & experience

Adam has directed award winning ensembles, taught individuals and groups at junior conservatoire and helped students to achieve a place at a senior conservatoire and pursue a career in music, but that doesn’t really describe what he does…

Adam is about helping young string players, chamber ensembles and orchestras to unleash their boundless creative potential. His work is to guide and educate young people with sensibilities which present a genuine need to search for, explore, express and share beauty and truth in all its permutations.

By removing barriers, Adam helps young musicians from all backgrounds to find their noble superpower, to express their humanity and sometimes their dreams, sharing the transformative power of music.
