Adam Meyer studied trombone, conducting and composition at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University and the Queensland University of Technology, graduating in 2006.
As a performer, Adam has been in demand as a freelance musician with orchestras, big bands, and recording artists; performing in leading music venues throughout Australia. He has performed the World and Australian premieres of several trombone solo and chamber works by leading and emerging composers.
In 2005, Adam served as Associate Music Director at the Gold Coast Arts Centre where he worked on several musical theatre productions, conducting orchestras and choirs in numerous public performances. As a conductor and ensemble director, Adam has worked with concert bands and big bands on primary and high school levels, many of these groups enjoying success at regional and state-level contests. His original works and arrangements have been performed by primary school, high school and university level ensembles.
From 2006-2009, Adam served on the Performance Music faculty at Sheldon College - one of Australia's leading independent schools. Since 2014, Adam has worked at Kingscliff High School in NSW in coordinating the Performance Music program.
Adam's current interests involve better implementation of technology-based learning delivery in traditional instrumental music education, within the larger context of developing a curriculum structure that best combines the most effective aspects of independent school, public school and conservatory music education models.
