Adam Precious was a product of the Leicestershire County School of Music in its heyday. Working with the likes of Tippett, Previn, Kyung Wha Chung, Philip Fowke, Havergal Brian and Campoli, he appeared on television with the youth orchestra, made records and toured Europe. He left school at 16 to become part of the first in-take of the new Royal Northern College of Music, studying with Adrian Beers, and five years later was in the first year of The National Centre for Orchestral Studies on a BBC Bursary, studying with Gerald Drucker. Adam has had a long association with London’s major symphony and chamber orchestras, touring the world extensively. His freelance commitments as a double bass player include film and television work, contemporary music groups and chamber music. He believes strongly in music education, teaching in two major independent schools, and is a popular chamber music tutor and coach.
