Wonderful piano teacher, Adam definitely know how to make learning fun for little ones. My 5 yrs old enjoy playing very much. Thank you, 😀😀😀
Adam has a warm, easygoing nature that really endears him to Isaiah. Adam genuinely seems to enjoy teaching, which results in Isaiah coming out of his lessons feeling accomplished and enthusiastic. Isaiah is now more self-directed and motivated when it comes to practicing at home. Thanks Adam!+ Read More
Adam is an awesome drum teacher. My son is only 5 and I wasn't sure he was ready to learn the drums, but Adam breaks things down and makes it simple for even youngsters to learn. He is always on time and very polite. Would highly recommend.
My son had his first lesson today and I can't wait for more. He tends to be very opinionated and distracted but Adam was incredibly patient. My son went on and on about how much he liked him on the way home. Love him!
He's very helpful, great with kids and positive attitude. My daughter likes him because he's a fun teacher.
I briefly took up drums during college out of personal interest and Adam was an excellent teacher. Although I was nervous about beginning a new instrument as an adult, he made our lessons both comfortable and challenging. He was very accommodating. More than that, he always had something I could practice at home to hone my skills between lessons. This made our time together very productive. Still, my favorite thing about Adam was his sense of humor and his passion for drumming. His love for music is contagious and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to take up something new or even just improve their skills!+ Read More
Adam is an exceptional teacher!! His passion for percussion radiates off him and is contagious to others. Adams best quality as an instructor however, is his unshakable patience and light, funny sense of humor that keeps me not only interested in digesting difficult material but also makes me want to come back for more. Adam makes you feel as if no question is a dumb question and is happy to take you along the journey that is mastering an instrument. Great teacher and great guy!! Highly recommended!! his chops are unreal I might add!!+ Read More
