Areas of Instruction
Adam is from Commack, New York. As an instructor, Adam creates an opportunity for students of all ages to become competent at playing the drums through the use of his vast knowledge of the instrument. In the next couple of years, Adam plans to continue competing and is in the process of releasing his own “how to” book.
Adam went to Five Towns College for music, audio and business. He graduated with his bachelors in 3.5 years and has been teaching ever since, both privately and at several music schools. In college, Adam attended the jazz ensemble, while receiving Latin lessons on the side. He enjoys being well rounded and likes many genres of music. At Five Towns, his instructor encouraged him to join the Drum Corps and Adam was involved with that for several years, traveling to Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Connecticut for competitions. Adam's Drum Corps involvement has done wonders for his hand chops and has taken him to a whole new level. In addition, Adam has done “party percussion” work with DJ's at several weddings at various catering halls. He has been involved with original bands since he started playing the drums and currently is in a hard rock/funk/hip-hop group called Hollywood Drive-By. During Drum Corps “I and E competitions”, Adam has earned 3 gold medals.
Adam has been playing shows since his first band and still does with his most current one. Hollywood Drive-By has played in New York City and all over Long Island, including the Crazy Donkey, Ollie's Point and both Mulcahy's locations.
