Credentials/BackgroundPlease refer to my website for more information on my teaching. I have a pupil-by-pupil approach, so it may alternatively be better to contact me on: adamztaylormusic@gmail.com

Clinic/Workshop InformationI offer clinics in guitar. Looking at all aspects of the guitar, from technique, style and feel to history, set-up and the context of the guitar. I also offer clinics in rhythmic awareness. This is an area that lots of musicians are either scared or complacent about and it is of supreme interest to me.
