ADAM MCDONALD PIANO
Originally from Northern Ireland, Adam is a classically trained pianist. He began learning piano at age 5 and achieved his Grade 8 piano before moving to England where he studied music at Bath Spa University under the direction of concert pianist Maria Garcia. During his time at university, Adam explored a wide variety of musical styles; from the impressionistic writings of Debussy's 'Suite Bergamasque: Prelude' to Copland's 'Four Piano Blues'. He also led a piano duet class at Bath Spa University where he encouraged students of all abilities to get involved. Adam graduated from Bath Spa University in 2019 with a first class BA(Hons)Music degree. He now continues his studies at Bath Spa University, studying for a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (P.G.C.E.) in Music.
Adam has performed at weddings, funerals and showcases, and has also accompanied solo performers and students taking their music exams (ABRSM).
Aside from piano, Adam also sings First Tenor in The Octet; a 'finely judged' (Bath Chronicle) Chamber Choir. The Octet have performed at a variety of venues within the UK and are dedicated to performing at the highest standard. He is also a member of the recently formed 8-part chamber choir Cordis, in which he sings Tenor.
