Adam Black - Available Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday

Brief History -

"Hello, I’m Adam Black; Guitarist, singer and songwriter based in Redfern Sydney, formally trained and constantly striving to improve my skills. I hold a Masters of Music in Jazz Performance at Sydney Conservatorium of Music, also a Bachelor of Contemporary Music from Australian institute Of Music.

Always wanting to share my passion in music I teacher guitar to children and adults with a passion for music from beginners to those seeking to do formal exams with AMEB or the Berklee Press. With wide experience performing for clubs, private functions, weddings and as a session musician. Performing as either soloist, duo, trio or band. Musical interests cross over funk, soul, jazz and blues in addition to a large repertoire of covers from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and now.

My performances, in addition to classics and a contemporary repertoire, feature original compositions and I have produced two albums to date. My performance credits include venues such as Lizotte’s in Australia, The Troubadour in London, and a variety of boutique bars, clubs and supported acts in large concerts such as Glen Shorrock from the Little River Band and Ian Moss to name a few.

I have a strong social conscience and commitment to the community; I see life positively with hope through half full eyes no matter what the turmoil or issue and seek to enrich people with my music.

My Educational Philosophy -

I am a strong believer in success being one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration. I’ve been lucky enough to have been metoured by both Australian and international musicians at the highest level. That said I have been exposed to a lot of different teaching techniques and styles which I would love to pass on to future students. A lot of my achievements so far have come from having weekly lesson with my own mentors, and I know the importance of both 100% participation not only from the student but from the teacher.

Weekly Lesson’s incorporate (but are not limited to);
Instrument basic
Reading Music Notation,
Rhythm and Lead guitar techniques
Repertoire of songs in Specific styles
Music Theory
Ear training etc.."


Styles of Music Taught -

I have a love for all styles, although Jazz and Blues is where I focus my playing at this stage in my career. I perform most weekends in contemporary acts around the city and I also have a lot of access to current pop music.

My Musical Interests -

Blues, Rock, jazz, pop, folk, singer songwriter etc:
