I'm a patient teacher with the ability to structure and pace lessons to meet the individual needs and ability levels of a wide variety of students. I am a professional performer, composer and recording artist with 20 years experience on stage and in the studio. I'm familiar with a wide variety of styles, and have studied blues, African, classical and Brazilian guitar at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music. I offer lessons on acoustic or electric guitar, depending on student preference.

Adam is helping me get back to playing guitar after some 40 years in which I did not play at all. With his help, I’m refreshing what I used to know (basic chords and notes on the staff), and extending my skills into new areas, like finger-picking, barre chords, and tablature-reading--plus learning a lot of new songs. He’s an excellent teacher.

As a middle aged man trying to learn an instrument, it was a daunting task to find a teacher that would work with me to learn the basics of guitar without laughing at my inability to actually play the darn thing.

Adam has been a great teacher and exactly the sort of professional and understanding person I was looking for. While I don't think my mediocre (getting better every week) guitar skills are the best testament to Adam's ability as a teacher, I think the fact that he has encouraged me to stick with it and turn a crazy idea into a legitimate hobby is.

I've been watching Adam learn guitar for more than 20 years now, and his dedication to the craft, as well as his wide range of influences, make him a great choice for a teacher.

Adam is not only a great musician but a great person. I have worked with him professionally in the music industry, and although I've never taken lessons from him, I have no doubt that his character and make up are the perfect ingredients to make a great instructor .

Adam's enthusiasm and patience with my 10 year old son is amazing. He's made so much progress in just a few short weeks!

I have known Adam as a professional musician and as the father of a young boy for several years. He is a wonderful musician, a well organized, systematic thinker and a gentle, understanding person who gives guidance and encouragement in the most constructive and positive way. I highly recommend him as a guitar teacher.
