Michael James Adele is the founder of his own music business, Room-Two Music and Arts Studios, which he set up in 2005 with an ambitious idea of having high quality space for young bands to meet, practice and compose music.Michael left teaching to set up Room-Two, this was a brave step and Michael struggled financially for quite some time until the rehearsal room started to take off. Michael is a charismatic teacher and many of his pupils struggle with academic learning but have flourished with Michaels approach and so many young people have achieved success. His young pupilslearn the skills required to prepare for exams through using songs and music that they really like. This captures their attention and then he can successfully teach the theory and musicianship required to pass grades. Michael has a 100% achievement in all exams with 99% being distinctions or merits. Michaels passion for encouraging people to achieve musically continues to college/university students voluntarily, teaching them skills such as sound engineering and recording. Michael is also committed to helping up and coming bands by promoting/organising regular music events and festivals where young unsigned bands can perform. I feel his is a great asset to Stockton and Middlesbrough communities and is a role model for many many budding musicians and an inspiration to the vast array of new musical talent in the Tees Valley.
