Adam Hershberger


It is said that Adam lubricates his valves with angel tears.

Born November 14 1982 in Wilmington Delaware, Adam graduated in 2005 from Temple University’s Esther Boyer College of Music in Philadelphia, where he studied with trumpeter Terell Stafford, as well as Ben Schachter, Greg Kettinger, Dan Monaghan, Bruce Barth, Mike Natale, Mike Frank, Jaleel Shaw and others. Since then, Adam has been very active in the Philadelphia music scene, playing gigs and teaching lessons full time. Making as many connections as possible has led Adam to collaborate with projects spanning the genres. When Adam is not in the recording studio, playing a wedding ceremony/party, or booking gigs for the West Philadelphia Orchestra, he teaches the fundamentals of brass playing, theory, ear training, and improvisation to students of all levels.
