So far, I've only had one lesson with Adam but I am looking forward to lots more. Adam seems very astute & knowledgeable not just in guitar-playing but in music theory, which is exactly what I'm lookin for in an instructor. He's helping me correct a few bad habits I've developed over the years, on my own. The way he explains things is very simple & to the point. I definitely recommend him based on my first lesson. I'll see if I can update my review at some point in the future but unless something goes horribly wrong, I wouldn't anticipate much to changen

Adam is the best instructor ever for guitar! He teaches you at your own pace and helped me figure out something I had been trying to learn for a very long time by myself! His teaching helped me pass my guitar test last semester!

Adam has been my music theory teacher for the better part of a year and a half or so. He's patient, kind, and makes sure you both are on the same page before moving forward. He is one of the best teachers I've had as a resource to come to when I need help.

Adam Tune is very prepared all the time. He is patient, passionate, and very qualified to teach us all we need to know about the subject. He teaches in a way that makes his students want to know more because his lessons are fun and interesting. Needless to say, he is very respectful and and encouraging.
He has helped me with Music Theory, Music Technology... and Hearthstone! :)

I would definitely recommend him.

I studied music theory with Adam because I needed extra help for college classes, and he was a huge help! There were so many concepts that I knew a little about, but Adam helped fill in the gaps of knowledge and familiarized me with the concepts so well, that I could teach them myself! He is patient, humorous, and a complete joy to take lessons from.
