Adam studied for his Music degree (BMus) at the University of Sheffield. His postgraduate studies have thus far centred on education, issues of assessment and widening participation in adult education.
He is currently preparing to undertake research in the area of music and the imagination. He will be considering how understanding more about the musical imagination might impact upon music teaching.
As a classical guitarist, Adam has performed as a soloist and as a member of a number of ensembles. These have most recently involved the arrangement
and performance of Brazilian music, and of Renaissance lute duets. He has performed on BBC Radio Sheffield and has appeared as arranger and accompanist on several recordings. Adam has also given lecture recitals on the music of John Dowland and JS Bach for the Open University.
