My Name is Adam Burns. I am an independent musician from Mariposa, California. I launched the Beat Harvest music education program in 2010 with a mission to inspire people to make music and teach them the skills they need to do so. In my teaching, I focus on unleashing creative potential and collaboration with other musicians. My goal is to teach my students not only to play their instrument, but also to use music to express themselves and build community.

I provide lessons in guitar, bass, drums and music technology in Mariposa and El Portal, California. You can find out about private lessons and group classes in the ‘Lessons‘ section of this website.
