As a creative consultant, he has worked on numerous global advertising campaigns. In 2019, he was the musical director for Amazon’s holiday campaign, conducting a choir of workers from an Amazon fulfilment centre outside Paris.

He has appeared as a keynote speaker at national and international music conferences including the Big Gig (Melbourne), Music and Drama Education Expo (London) and the Music Learning Revolution (Manchester). He is an advisor for Trinity College London, Musical Futures International, Sing Up and the Abram Wilson Foundation.

He has curated and conducted choirs across the UK, including Citibank, Bupa Head Office and the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS choir (first seen on the Gareth Malone BBC 2 programme ‘Sing While You Work’).

Adam is one of the feature pianists for DECCA records ‘Music Lab Collective’ and has performed at some of the UK’s most iconic venues including the Royal Festival Hall, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, the Camden Roundhouse and the Hammersmith Apollo.
