Adam was only eight years old when he began learning the Cornet with The Salvation Army, whilst also having lessons from both his father and the East Sussex Music Service. Born in the Kent town of Royal Tunbridge Wells, and surrounded by a musical family, the fact that he became so interested in music at a young age comes as no surprise. This early passion for music quickly developed and Adam has subsequently experienced playing in many different musical ensembles.
Having a large brass band family background, and sharing that interest, he decided to attend the University of Salford which has a strong brass heritage. Whilst there Adam had the privilege of being taught by two of the country’s leading cornet tutors, Brian Taylor and Richard Marshall. It was under the tutelage of Richard that Adam was given the opportunity to join the Black Dyke Band in 2017.
Since graduating with a BA Hons. and a Masters in Performance, Adam has joined the British Army Reserves as a musician playing in The Band of the Yorkshire Regiment and looks forward to the playing opportunities that this provides along with those at Black Dyke.
With what spare time he has outside of music, Adam loves sports, notably football (Crystal Palace), basketball (Phoenix Suns), and snowboarding. He takes every chance to either watch or participate in all these activities.
