Teaching & Workshops

Teaching forms a significant part of my career. As professor of Baroque Trombone and Historical Performance at the Royal Academy of Music in London, the Conservatoire of Amsterdam, and the Royal Conservatoire of Brussels, I teach one-to-one lessons and coach ensembles on a regular basis. This alongside giving classes in general and specialised historical performance techniques. Through these and other institutions, I have directed large scale projects involving instrumentalists and singers from all over the world and I find myself collaborating on a regular basis with numerous educational institutions.

Private Lessons

I gladly give individual lessons and group coaching, which can be arranged privately and take place in a convenient location in several countries.

Lessons via Skype or FaceTime are also available! This is a good way to connect to get feedback about a wide range of technical and musical issues. Lessons are available in 30 minute sessions and sometimes just half an hour to discuss specific points can really help to guide your technical or musical development.  All from the comfort of your home/studio.

Please contact me for details about prices.


Every year I run several workshops/courses in several countries and catering for all types of player. Some include singers and most include other instruments from the 16th and 17th centuries.   A new addition to my activities this year are the one-day workshops held in San Sebastián. These are open just to sackbut players and trombonists who are interested in exploring the work of pre-classical repertoire. The days include individual lessons, group coaching and ensemble playing.  For more information or to apply, please contact me.

"Adam was so easy to work with arranging the course and as a tutor I thought he was just fantastic, with his gentle but extremely exacting way of pulling the very best out from each of us both as individuals and also as a coherent group."
