Adam Steven Purnell was born in Bristol and began playing the Classical Guitar at the age of eleven under the tutorship of Andrew Britton. He has played many recitals throughout the South West and aged 16 received a scholarship to study at the Bath International Guitar Festival. In December 2007 he was offered a place to study with John Mills and Graham Devine at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Since he began his degree at the college he has performed as a soloist and in various ensembles including works with Piano and Voice. In the autumn of 2010 Adam was accepted on to the Erasmus Exchange Programme to study for six months at the Koninklijk Academy in Brussels with the world famous Classical Guitarist Antigoni Goni. During his time in Brussels Adam gave a recital at The Rits International Centre and played in a master-class with Italian guitarist Nuccio D'angelo. Adam is currently in his fourth year at The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama where he recently won the annual RWCMD Guitar Prize. He is a keen supporter of the Bristol Classical Guitar scene and in May 2010 was announced a friend of the Bristol Guitar Society, becoming there first sponsored guitarist. Adam enjoys playing a wide range of repertoire from Renaissance to 20th Century, he focuses on playing the repertoire of Andres Segovia in concert.
Tell me about some of your current students.
My current students range from beginners to advance, young to old. Some follow the graded route of Trinity Guildhall or ABRSM, others prefer to play repertoire purely for their own enjoyment.
