Hello, my name is Adam. I am a self taught guitarist with a passion for performing and teaching the instrument.

My primary style is classical but I have experience in majority of styles, blues of which was my dominant style during my adolescent years.

I am currently undertaking a BMus in Classical Performance at Auckland University.

Teaching Info

From teaching myself I understand the easiest route to your success.

If you want to be a blues guitarist – the easiest route is learning rifts, licks and solos by ear and also having a understanding of the pentatonic scale (from which majority of blues comes from).

Want to be folk guitarist – having an understanding of keys, rhythm and song structure will be your bread and butter.

Want to be a classical guitarist – you will be taught to read sheet music and will be required to follow the Trinity College grading system.

What ever it is you want to be – we can get there together.

I can teach majority of styles and lesson are tailored to your preference.

We also have fun in our lessons – we can talk in between rests and chill out because I believe that obsession is not the best way to practice. Quality over quantity – if you obsess and play like crazy you are only going to teach yourself bad technique and could possibly injure yourself.
