About Me

Hello to all! My name is Duff and I've been working at the Hagerstown Music & Arts since August 2015.

My specialties are Guitar, Bass, Saxophone, and Audio Equipment.

I was immediately drawn to Music & Arts from the first time I visited the store and realized what a fun and educational atmosphere it is! Quickly I realized that the staff were friendly and experienced, and the teachers are the very best the area has to offer!

As a young boy in 4th grade at Summitview Elementry in Waynesboro, I started with my very first instrument the Alto Saxophone. From there I fell in love with music and continued to play a variety of saxophones and many other instruments in as many groups as the schools had to offer all the way up to my graduation. Jazz Band, Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, Indoor Drumline, Concert Choir, Marching Band, Pep Band...you name it, I was in it!

In high school, I found my true musical passion which was playing the guitar and I've been doing it ever since. I play lead guitar in a rock band called Drew Adam's Project which as of 2015 has been going strong for nearly 5 years performing all over the tri state region! Wether its cover songs from my favorite bands, or original music, its always a pleasure for me to get to play and perform.

I recieved my degree in Show Production and Touring, which is mostly an audio engineering degree from Full Sail University in 2009.

Some of my favorite groups and artists are The Beatles, Pink Floyd,Tom Petty, Oasis, Blur, Weezer, Billy Joel, Elton John, Ben Folds, AC/DC, The Who, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, Rush,My Morning Jacket, Mumford and Sons, Sugarcult, Blink 182, Less Than Jake, Third Eye Blind and many many more!

Please stop by or call me, and I'll be glad to help you with any of your music needs including information about instruments, equipment, repairs, rentals, and lessons!
