Dustin Adams

Bio

Dustin is a Texas native and started his musical journey playing in punk bands during his teens. He earned a degree in music studying piano and percussion at Amarillo College and worked out his Jazz chops incessantly gigging under the wings of veteran musicians on keys and drum set. He also studied music at The University of North Texas where he developed an interest in the music of India, learning tabla, mridangam, and the art of making a mean cup of chai with master percussionists.

Dustin's performing experience includes everything from solo to big band, punk, jazz, rock, blues, studio work, musical theater, festivals, spacious stages to cramped corners, and just about everything in between. He moved to Denver in 2011 and has performed with bands such as Minor Note Orchestra, Lamont North Indian Classical Music Ensemble, Doug Jackson and the Chosen Few, Sybil Vane & The Fakebooks, and more. He also works as a piano tuner and technician at Move and Tune pianos.

Dustin's approach to teaching has roots in a statement made to him by a wise old jazz musician, "If you ever think that you have arrived somewhere in music you've gone backwards. Never stop learning."

Dustin has been teaching music for over eight years and is comfortable working with children as well as adults. He loves teaching and meets students where they are and helps them to achieve their own musical goals while simultaneously emphasizing the importance and mastery of fundamentals.
