"I began piano lessons with no previous piano or instrumental experience. Adam doesn’t shock you by putting too much pressure on, so I found it easy to learn and was surprised how quickly I was able to play songs. He’s an interactive teacher and he showed me what to do by playing the song first."
"Adam was a great mentor in preparing me for university pre-selection; willing to go an extra mile to make sure I was prepared for every evaluation. Adam helped me meet the criteria to gain entrance into a Bachelor of Applied Music (Composition) at Box Hill Institute."
