"We have had the pleasure of working with Adam for over 5 years...He seems genuinely interested in my child and engages with her accordingly. Despite her young age, he teaches her with respect and challenges her each time. He's willing to adapt to what my child needs to learn and when. We "randomly" found him, and it has proven to be the best accident we've ever had!"
--Mandy P., Parent
"Adam is awesome because he always encourages me and is a lot of fun! Whenever I ask questions, he tells me lots of fun facts, not just about drums but about science and making decisions. He always explains why we do things. And he is very kind and chill!"
--Leeland P., Drum Set/Music Theory Student (Age 9)
"Adam's passion for teaching is clearly evident. He has a gift for explaining complicated concepts in understandable terms. His wealth of knowledge is confirmed by his Master's degree in Composition, but it is his ability and desire to give that knowledge away that makes him a remarkable person."
--Craig P., Parent
"Adam is a wonderful teacher. He is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, patient and kind. I love taking lessons with him because he has such a passion for music, and he really wants his students to succeed. I would happily recommend him to anyone."
--Amanda M., Drum Set Student (Age 34)
"Under Adam's instruction and care, [our son] has become a beautiful drummer and a talented musician. As a parent, I greatly appreciate the high level of musical instruction and professionalism Adam brings to each of his lesson. Adam also has a wonderful way of meeting his students where they are at, as well as honoring the student's own unique musical ideas."
--Kelly B., Parent
