Adam T. has been teaching and tutoring in various subjects since 2011, and is currently available to teach lessons at home or at your location of choice. Adam has helped students overcome common bad habits among guitarists, comprehend complicated music theory concepts, master Logic Pro X, and even hone their writing and mathematics skills.

Proficient in all aspects of the study of music, Adam looks forward to help students develop solid fundamental techniques and understanding. Adam's teaching style encourages students to ask important questions, understand ideas at a conceptual level, and never to settle for "good enough" in place of "best."

My name is Mary Mercurio Santos, and I am the Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction Coordinator for Azusa Pacific University. Adam worked under my direct supervision as a Tutor and Supplemental Instruction Leader for approximately three years while he was an undergrad at APU.
Adam's knowledge of music, and Music Theory is extensive and comprehensive, and yet he has the ability to break down these complicated theoretical concepts and make them easy to understand for even the most basic learner. I have seen him successfully tutor students at all levels of musical knowledge and experience. If you need to know ANYTHING about music, I strongly recommend you reach out to Adam for services.
Adam is a passionate and knowledgeable teacher. He has tutored me on logic pro software and helped me understand concepts using my own exploring. He is very good at explaining things in a way that is appropriate for every skill level. He also has a great sense of humor and makes learning fun. Excellent at helping with setting goals and accountability with practice. Definitely take lessons with Adam if you want to become a better musician or student!!+ Read More
I was a music student at Azusa Pacific University and Adam Tune helped me with Music Theory for two semesters. He is very knowledgeable of the subject, and has a clear, friendly, and logical teaching approach that makes the experience fun. He can explain topics and concepts in a way that is easy to understand.
He is also very knowledgeable in music composition, arranging, and in the use of Logic Pro software that he could use while teaching theory.
Very helpful, patient, and knowledgable. Adam is a great teacher that I would recommend to anyone.
Adam is extremely knowledgeable and knows how to help people with what they don't understand. He explains things as clearly and simply as possible and is good at finding other ways of explaining things if you don't understand the first time. His kindness and patience is always a good bonus. 10/10 would recommend.+ Read More
Adam was great! Very helpful. The only thing that was difficult was finding times to get together. I know that many in the class struggled to meet with Adam. Other than that, keep it up!
Adam explains things in a way that makes you think critically about the subject and gives logical ways to work through theory problems. HES THE BEST IMSTRUCTOR EVER! I would not have passed theory without him
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+ Read More
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.+ Read More
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.
Punctual, knowledgeable and extremely competent. From basic music theory to advanced concepts. Adam is patient and a great communicator with my 8 year old.
We highly recommend Adam for students of all ages
Adam tutored me in music theory. He is incredibly smart, patient, and his teaching is really easy to understand. I really enjoyed learning from him!
He's really knowledgeable about different genres and will work with you at the level your at. He has a gift for teaching!
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.+ Read More
