Get to know Adom Whitaker

Adom Whitaker was born in Norfolk, Virginia to a family of musicians. His parents saw fit to enroll him in private Violin and Piano lessons at the age of four. At age six, he was introduced to the world of percussion and began taking snare lessons with various church drummers. To give back to the network that molded his musical training, he served as an Audio Engineer for his church from elementary to middle school. Through high school, he matured into his church’s full-time percussionist and kept this position until he matriculated to the College of William & Mary. Outside of the classroom, Adom chose to spend his free time managing service projects that taught local students the fundamentals of musicianship. These experiences inspired him to reach new heights and dedicate his life to working with the next generation. Adom came to Richmond, VA. to enjoy life in a city where the arts are a true part of the community. Adom sees music as the intersection of education and recreation, and believes it cultivates perseverance in ways other activities cannot. While playing instruments provides learners with various productive skills, it is also an entertaining way to occupy time. In addition, the virtues needed to master a percussion instrument are the same ones that can enable someone to become successful. It allows the expression of creativity, nurtures self-esteem, and equips musicians with discipline - all of which are necessary to becoming a leader and living a fulfilling life. Music can be a bridge between two people, and because we all have a heartbeat - percussion instruments are the best way to connect with one another. Adom enjoys giving percussion lessons because drums do not just control the tempo, but are the pulse of every song.
