Born in Chicago Michael Adamczyk earned a Master’s degree in music from Notre Dame University. Michael is a firm believer in word painting. The accompaniment of a song should reflect the spirit of the lyrics. He is retired after forty years of teaching classical guitar in colleges and universities. He is the creator of the “Know it All Guitar Book” a finger style guitar method for beginers. And after fifty years as a church organist he is still at it. He now devotes his time to publishing his music, gardening and riding his motorcycle
Audience and Press Reviews
Michael Adamczyk's music brings the right emotions to any given occasion, from bold and powerful to soft and delicate. It provides just the right emphasis and inspiration. He can take a phrase and run with it ? turning it into something exquisitely expanded from a simple line, or pared down from a complex setting.
Michael Adamczyk's solos are contemporary while still having strong classical attributes. Gentle shifting of tonal centers adds to an almost ethereal quality yet remains solid ? very doable and pleasant to hear.
