Hello from Adam! My career has been an awesome mix of formal education, teaching and touring. On the school side, I am a graduate of New York University's Music Business + Technology program. I have been teaching since 2010, doing both private lessons as well as group and individual sessions at Denver's famed Swallow Hill Music. Part of my duties with Swallow Hill included working with their House Of Rock summer camp program instructing young adults in the 12-18 age range. I am passionate about teaching guitar and someone that prides themselves on tailoring each lesson to the individual student by putting in the necessary time to prepare materials in advance. I don't have a one-size-fits-all "method" and strive to only provide helpful and applicable instruction. My comfort zone goes anywhere from kids just starting out to adults in working bands that need to add some tricks to their guitar ouevre. I have been the subject of a full-page feature in Vintage Guitar magazine and several songs I've played on have been broadcast on Sirius/XM "Outlaw Country." My original music has been captured on two highly-acclaimed instrumental albums, Twang Shui and High Country Gentleman.
About Adam S.

According to Vintage Guitar Magazine I am "looking to bring a new sound to instrumental guitar music" and that my original songs are "a memorable mix of country, jazz, rock and soul that transcends all genres." As a sideman, my resume includes numerous tours with national acts and I've also had songs on SiriusXM Radio. And I love teaching and sharing my knowledge of music! My teaching background has been with all ages and all levels of students. I've had great success with getting beginners off the ground and helping them play the music they enjoy. Nothing is off-limits whether it be pop songs, fingerpicking, metal anthems, country pickin', jazz standards, blues improvisation -- you name it. I don't have a "method" but rather tailor our sessions to your individual needs. Everyone is different and I spend the time preparing material that works for YOU. *August 2021 update -- my current teaching hours are Monday 10am-5:30pm, Tuesday and Wednesday all day and Thursday 10am-3pm. You're always welcome to get in touch and see if we can find a time slot that works."

Adam’s got some cool blues pockets. I’d never really thought about lead as pockets - kind of like a drummer would think about a fill. So I guess if you think about lead as discrete pockets it should be “easier “ to break down the lead guitar.
