Adrian has led a wide ranging musical career over the last four decades. Starting with learning the trombone at the age of ten, by the time he had reached his last year of high school he was already performing, composing, and conducting on a regular basis.
After completing his Bachelor of Music at the University of Queensland (1993), Adrian moved to Sydney to take up the roles of Principal Trombone and Staff Arranger with the Royal Australian Navy Band (1994-2002). During this time he was featured regularly as soloist, and was also seconded to the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games- providing over three hundred music arrangements of incidental works and national anthems and for their opening, and award, ceremonies. Through radio and television, his original works and arrangements have reached an audience of over ten million people. His efforts during this time were rewarded with an Admiral’s Commendation (2001).
After spending two years in England- working for the Royal Northern College of Music, and as a manuscript cataloguer for Repertoire Internationale des Sources Musicales (RISM)- Adrian returned to Brisbane in 2004, and has since undertaken numerous performing, conducting, and teaching positions, including guest lecturing at the University of Queensland. He completed his Masters of Music at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music (2011), and in that same year formed Ady: a music collective that performs a wide and eclectic range of music- from early Western Art Music through to pop and cult classics, and which has premiered many new arrangements and works.
