Adam Weiss was brought up as a Suzuki kid on the west side of the state, but has since fallen in love with the land across the mountains. After graduating with a B.A. in Music and a minor in Computer Science from Central Washington University, they plan to move to Yakima to continue as a Teaching Artist at YAMA. A violist and improviser at heart, Adam seeks to help reintroduce the lost art of improvisation back into classical music. They are excited to both teach and learn from the students along the journey to revitalizing the classical world.
