Konrad R.
I enjoyed working with Adam on reducing my accent. He has an uncanny talent to pick up subtleties in my pronunciation to identify where my accent becomes apparent. He worked iteratively with me to find words, syllable, vowels or consonants that I mispronounce. What makes him a great teacher is that he approaches the pronunciation from many different angles. It's not easy to work on your own accent which is why his witty teachings helps a lot to make every session very enjoyable.
Sergio
He pinpoints a lot of small things, that overall help tremendously. He has a great ear and picks up on little subtleties in your voice that you can improve, and this causes you to hold yourself accountable to the same standards as a result. Overall, after just one lesson, i have learned a lot and am eager to continue learning with Adam.
Justin
Adam was great to work with for my first lesson. He has a lot of experience and gives good tips and advice. I'm looking forward to more lessons with him.

I will help you you build strong fundamentals and excellent habits. We will concentrate on your sound, tone, and pitch center. I will help you develop a daily routine that builds your skill set every time you play. I enjoy working with adult students and comeback players. I am more of a coach than a taskmaster. I am an active trumpeter and perform frequently with several ensembles.

I am a professional trumpet player and an experienced brass teacher. I moved to the UK in 2014 and have been working with orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, and have also performed as a soloist with the New Mozart Ensemble and the Verbier Chamber Orchestra in Switzerland. I graduated from the Juilliard School in New York in 2012 and spent one year with a contract with the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra as assistant principal trumpet. I have also been a member of the Verbier Festival and Chamber Orchestras since 2012, touring with them all over Europe and Asia. As a teacher, my experiences have been diverse. I was the trumpet coach of the pre-college program at the Juilliard School during my time as a postgraduate student and have taught at workshops in Rio de Janeiro. I am currently the brass teacher at St George’s Ascot, a brass tutor for both Lambeth and Sutton music services, a brass coach for the Chineke Orchestra, and the sabbatical cover ...

"I have known Vinnie for 35 years in the world of music. He is a colleague that I hold in the highest regard. I have had the great pleasure of performing alongside him in a number of different situations. As a sideman we have performed music on an extremely high level, everything from Jazz Standards, originals, to Weather Report etc. Vinnie's abilities as trumpeter and educator are tremendous, world class all across the board. He is great reader and his improvisation is of the highest order, creative, inventive, with thematic development and harmonic depth in the single line."

"As an adult learner who plays multiple instruments, I’ve had every type of teacher you can imagine. It’s always a struggle to find a teacher able to work with the unique requirements of being an adult with adult obligations and time constraints.

Tom, as it turns out, is that rare teacher able to not just handle these unique requirements, but is also fantastic at finding and focusing on knowledge gaps, whether it be playing, theory, tone, or anything else I throw at him.

Prior to taking lessons with Tom, I had barely held a trumpet, and I’m progressing at a rate far faster than I had imagined I would.

So don’t bother looking elsewhere, Tom is who you need!"
