Overview

Hi and welcome to my page! I'll get straight to the point and provide you with a little bit of information about myself:

Adam is a professional clarinet player in several ensembles over the past ten years to include the 215th Army band, the Shiners' volunteer unit, multiple local musical orchestras as well as being the principal clarinetist in the UMass Symphony band for four years. Adam received a BA in music from the University of Massachusetts (Amherst). Adam has been teaching privately since 2008 and is a member of the Massachusetts Music Educators Association as well as the National Music Educators Association.

As you can see I have plenty of experience in the music field and love to share my passion and enthusiasm for music with everyone I meet. On our very first lesson l want you to teach ME about yourself! When did you start learning music/speaking English, what do you like to listen to and where would you like our lessons to take you? From there I design our lessons around your taste to give you the most in our time together.

I am willing to do hour long lessons by request only.

Today was my third lesson with Adam, and I am happy with how things are going. Adam is doing the best I would expect from a clarinet teacher. He is enthusiastic, open for questions, responsive, knowledgeable, and a clear instructor. And all that for a good price.
