Adam believes every student can have freedom of expression through the beautiful language of music. Together you follow a fun structured course designed to take you from the very foundations of music through to advanced concepts in Acoustic, Electric or Bass Guitar.
You start by looking at the basics – posture, technique, reading music, open chords & barre chords.
Then you learn how to build vocabulary with arpeggios, scales, modes, rhythms & practice techniques.
Finally you will study improvisation & songwriting so you can express yourself in musical terms.
You choose the musical styles & repertoire so bring your favourite music to the lesson. Adam knows what it is like to be a student, how to stay motivated & enjoy the experience. Learn online, in a dedicated home studio space in Bristol, or at your home if nearby. Advanced DBS Check & Safeguarding Policy available.
