Teaching + Arranging

Private tuition

Adam is an experienced piano teacher and performance coach, specialising in jazz, funk and blues.

As well as piano tuition, Adam specialises in:

  • Jazz harmony and theory
  • Aural training
  • Songwriting (structure, lyrics, harmonies)
  • Arranging for different ensembles

Lessons can be offered either at Adam’s studio in Hawthorn or at the student’s house.

After an initial consultation to establish new students’ prior musical experience, interests and objectives, a tailored study programme will be developed to suit the students individual needs.

Students usually have a 1/2 hour or full hour lesson at a regular weekly time, although casual lessons and other flexible arrangements are also possible.
