Adam Taylor

Gitaarles, zangles, songwriting en muziektheorie in Government of Rotterdam en Rotterdam Overschie

Gitaar? Leuk!

Hi, my name is Adam and I love the guitar! It is such a cool instrument and it is something anybody can learn how to play with the right guidance.

A little about me…

I started on the air guitar rocking out in front of the mirror as a kid and never looked back. I received my BA in jazz from Leeds College of Music in 2013 and graduated with an MA in jazz from Codarts, Rotterdam in 2017. I perform internationally and I have won several awards as a guitarist, most notably the Eric Kershaw Prize (2013) and the Jimmy Woode Award (2014). As well as performing and composing I have been teaching for nearly 10 years now.

Ik kan ook lessen in het Nederlands geven, als je mijn Engelse accent niet erg vindt 😉

Inspiration!

There is nothing quite like learning a musical instrument and I love helping guitar lovers of all ages achieve their goals! Whether you want to accompany yourself singing, play a face-melting solo in a rock band, learn how to play the jazz classics or just have fun it is all possible through our lessons. The guitar is such a versatile instrument and we can explore the magic of it together.
