Composing


Adam has composed and arranged widely for percussion, including teaching resources, solos and ensembles of varying sizes. 

His tutor book, My First Multi Mallet Book, is published by Southern Percussion. He writes, “There is some good repertoire available for those who can already use four mallets, but this book is designed to ease players into the technique with simple, accessible pieces using three and four mallets. Each section of this book practises a different multi-mallet skill, including adjusting intervals, rolling, and independence of mallets. I have included duets and trios, along with some pieces with piano accompaniment so that pupils and teacher can perform together.” 

His 2016 work, Dickens’ Dream: A Suite for Wind Band was premiered by the Hampshire County Youth Wind Ensemble in March 2016.
