Adrian was the Anglo-Swedish Society music scholar 2014-15 during his studies at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama
"I have always been very motivated and it has always been perfectly clear what I want to do in my life, and now that I have been accepted to Guildhall I know there is a chance for me to pursue my dream!"

"Since my scholarship I've graduated from Guildhall School of Music with a Bachelor Honours degree in Jazz Percussion. Even though the pandemic has limited much of my ability to perform, I've been fortunate to perform on Swedish Radio P1 Litteraturgalan. I've been playing on the musical production "Bonnie & Clyde" in Odense, Denmark. Last year I performed with my jazz trio on Stockholm Jazz Festival and I'm currently working on an upcoming album to be released later this year.
"I was so happy to hear from you! I'm so grateful to the Anglo-Swedish society for their support"
