      Adam was a great teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed his lessons which he presented in an ordered and professional manner.

      Over the course of 2011-2013 I was taught by Adam. I had owned a guitar for about a year prior to starting lessons, but took no interest in it, nor did I know any of the basics at all. I came to his lessons as a complete amateur and would have to be built from the ground up if I wanted to get anywhere. Adam was very patient with me and understood that I was a bit of a slow learner to the guitar, and kept lessons both enthusiastic and enjoyable. Eventually I found myself learning more things much more rapidly, and he allowed me to broaden my musical taste significantly. I went from somebody who listened to a very small pool of heavy metal bands, to learning and both loving new sounds in jazz, funk, indie, blues, as well as broadening my taste in heavy metal. Adam is an excellent teacher who is able to adapt lessons to your needs and is extremely easy to get along with. He makes you feel comfortable and confident in yourself so that you do not become insecure when you make mistakes, and he is a teacher that I would highly recommend anybody to have.

      Adam is a great teacher that brought me from an absolute novice to being able to play along with my favorite songs as well as create my own. He was able to teach me theory in a fun, compelling way and helped me to understand the different ways in which knowing theory makes you a better guitar player. Adam is truly one of the best!
