Adam on his philosophy of drumming and teaching:
“The pursuit of musical skill is a great ingredient in making a happy life. Musical improvement is good for us because it encourages a holistic approach to our life quality, and it benefits from a communal approach to progress.”
“I see many ways to help us improve our methods of achieving this progress. As a drum instructor, I have become clear about the inspiring truth that musical improvement is not chance.. so I basically strive to provide tools to assist the drumming community in evolving forward as quickly and efficiently as possible.” brings useful information and new technology to the world of drumming and percussion. We seek to strengthen the drum community by bringing about a shift in advanced teaching methods.  We also strive to simplify the learning curve for drummers at every level.  We bring modern learning tools to todays drummer in the form of apps and traditional learning materials.
