Following his studies at London’s Royal Academy of Music, Adam quickly developed a reputation as one of the leading baroque trombonists in the UK. He became a member of British pioneering ensemble His Majesty’s Sagbutts and Cornetts and accepted positions as principle trombone with Sir John Eliot Gardiner’s English Baroque Soloists and Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique. Since then, he has been based in continental Europe, where he plays regularly with leading ensembles such as Arpeggiata, Holland Baroque, Concerto Palatino and Traverseés Baroques. Now proud to have a worldwide reputation as a performer and teacher, Adam teaches Historical Performance at Amsterdam Conservatoire, Royal Brussels Conservatoire and the Royal Academy of Music.
In 2018, together with Mau Ziemkiewicz, Adam founded DIEM, to establish a series of international early music courses in the Spanish Basque Country as well as promoting concerts and other early music-related events.
