Adam obtained a Bachelor of Music and a Masters of Music from Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music, Monash University, studying classical piano and harmony.

Adam also has a YouTube channel which has over 1,800 subscribers, containing some of his performances, teachings (has over 20 Alfred’s Series piano teaching recordings) and compositions.


Currently, Adam is writing two visionary papers, Perfect Pitch/Sound Recognition in conjunction with Music Composition/Musicality and expanding on Bruce Lee’s The Art of Expressing the Human Body, not in terms of martial arts but in dancing since Adam is also a very passionate dancer!
