Adam King began his formal music training at the early age of five.  It was evident that God’s hand was on Adam’s life.  He quickly excelled and began serving his hometown church as pianist & organist at age six.

At age fourteen, he began his first part-time job as organist at a local church and began coordinating and leading worship for the Wednesday night youth service. 

After graduating high school and attending one year at a local junior college, Adam enrolled in the music department at the University of Mobile in Mobile, AL. 

While at the university, he aaccompanied the university’s touring chorale throughout the United States, Canada, Germany, Austria, & Switzerland.  He was the guest musician for the university’s commencement services on both the Mobile campus (organist) and the Nicaragua campus (pianist).  In addition, he served as an accompanist to many of the private student voice lessons and recitals.  In later years, he returned as an adjunct faculty professor, teaching applied piano & organ, class piano, and music theory. He also served as music director and principal accompanist for the university’s former Upper Room Dinner Theatre, performing such shows as: The Diary of Adam & Eve; Godspell; Nunsense II; Cotton Patch Gospel; Pumpboys & Dinettes; Big River; 10th Anniversary Musical Review; An Evening of Gershwin;  My Fair Lady; Thoroughly Modern Millie; and Fiddler on the Roof.

He was also very involved in community theatre, serving as both accompanist and musical director for the following shows: Meet Me in St. Louis; The Unsinkable Molly Brown; West Side Story; Urinetown; Company; and Promises, Promises.  As a contracted staff member at Samford University, he served as musical director/accompanist for theatre’s production of Pretty Funny. Most recently he was hired as a rehearsal accompanist for the Red Mountain Theatre production of Newsies.

He received a Master of Music with a concentration in Church Music from Samford University and is a member of the Music Teachers’ National Association, the Alabama Music Teachers’ Association, the Birmingham Metro Music Forum, and the American Guild of Organists. 

He is a lover of all styles and genres of music and believes that God can use any style to bring glory to Himself.   He has adopted this mission statement for his life: I exist as a vessel, surrendered to do whatever it takes to usher into the hearts of men the Kingdom of God.

In addition to accompanying various artists and worship services, he is currently serving as a vocal studio accompanist at Samford University and maintains a private home piano studio.
