My name is Adam Porter, and I am the founder of PorterBass.
What is PorterBass?
For the last 17 years, I have built up my career as a musician and music tutor. I have worked with students of all ages and abilities, and am passionate about teaching music.
I have studied at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London, The Academy of Music and Sound, and Southampton Solent University – where I was taught much of the knowledge and skills I now pass on to my students.
Over the years, I have built a portfolio of bands, artists and studios that I have worked with. This work has taken me all over the UK and in to Europe and has included collaborations with:
•Abbey Road Studios
•Mike Stock’s Studio, Sussex
•Shayne Ward (The X Factor)
•Rachael Hawnt (All Together Now)
•Sarah Darling (The Entertainer)
•The Inklings (Live and Unsigned Finalists)
I am passionate about playing bass, and strive to always build on my skills. I also play guitar, ukulele and piano. Live music is really important to me and I perform in a variety of cover and original bands. I also spend time in the studio as a session player, and am proficient in a range of musical styles. You can find examples of these on my Home and Videos page.
