During this time, he completed a Graduate Diploma in Education at the University of New England and was awarded a Licentiate in Music Performance from Trinity College London.
Adam has performed in numerous orchestras, wind bands, big bands, brass bands, jazz combos, roving groups, cover bands and pit orchestras. He has won state and national solo competitions. As well as playing, he is an accomplished arranger and conductor.
