Adam has a long standing relationship with music. He started on piano but eventually moved to guitar, and saxophone as well as many other instruments. He began playing the guitar at age 12 being heavily influenced by classic rock and blues music, with guitar idols like Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Brian May of the band Queen. After 5 years of taking lessons he joined a local country band that performed around Minnesota as well as the rest of the country. This greatly expanded his musical horizons on the guitar. Since then he has consistently been on stage with a guitar in hand. In addition to guitar, Adam also is an avid saxophone player. Starting in 5th grade, Adam was a member of concert bands, playing Alto, Tenor, and Baritone Saxophone, both in and out of school. He has developed a love of concert band performance and composition as well as music theory from his time in this sort of musical environment. He continued to play both saxophone and guitar into his college career and beyond. Music has always been a big part of Adam's life and he is very excited to help share that with eager students.
