Adam has taken me to new heights on my journey to becoming a musician. As someone who first approached music with much hesitation and a lack of confidence, Adam reminded me that I can achieve any of my musical goals at any age. He provides you with all the technique, theory training, and support you need to really internalize what you’re learning. He was also excellent with reminding of me of the spark that first drew me to music, when judgment and self-doubt seemed to get in the way. I can now approach something that once felt so intimidating with confidence and a sense of ease. I’ve learned that it’s all about falling in love with the process. Forever grateful for the way Adam has believed in me and the trust he has instilled in me as an artist. I highly recommend taking that leap of faith and stepping into the light of your dreams. It’s one of the most rewarding feelings to look back and see how far you’ve come.
