"Adam Hope is a musical polymath, an excellent pianist, conductor, composer, lecturer and thinker on musical topics. He is also a huge enthusiast for all aspects of music making, a leader of choirs and orchestras, the MD of shows, a church organist and arranger of a wide range of different musical material."
Dr Tim Ewers, Associate Professor of Music
"His keenness, his energy, his work-rate, his striving for the very highest standards, and his inexhaustible curiosity about all kinds of music make Adam Hope one of the most stimulating musicians I have ever had the pleasure of working with."
Solo and orchestral pianist, arranger and orchestrator
"As a composer and arranger, Adam has the ability to combine both his intellectual expertise and emotional intuition to take us on a musical journey that is always exciting and moving. As an arranger, Adam ensures he understands the composer and work so as to deliver a product that not only brings to life the idea, but magically enhances it. Working with Adam is truly a pleasure."
London-based Theatre Composer, Lyricist and Musical Director
"Adam is very creative and brims with ideas; he has a wide range of musical knowledge, taking in all sorts of genres; he is highly skilled at getting the best out of the people he works with. And he is a person of integrity who honours his commitments. Charley and I are delighted that Adam has taken on the role of MD and arranger for the new musical When Strawberries Aren't Enough, knowing that the music is in excellent hands."

"Working with Adam is a thrilling creative process. His tenacity and enthusiasm has enabled us as a creative team to drive musical projects forward and get the very best from our cast. Adam inspires those around him and also encourages a rehearsal process built on hard-work and mutual respect. Adam believes in focusing on opportunities rather than limitations and the notion that anything can be achieved. This positivity alongside his talent and skills as a Musical Director make a dynamic combination."
Sarah Dowd and Elizabeth Lattimore, Directors
Youth Action Theatre
"I have worked alongside Adam Hope several times and I find in him a musician of exceptional quality with unbounded enthusiasm for all styles and types of music. He shows great interest in researching all aspects of music. He has a delightful open personality when dealing with groups of singers, with whom he builds a fine rapport."

“Our company members simply adore Adam! He turns up to rehearsals with a clear plan of what he wants to achieve and then he just gets it done. He manages a large company rehearsal with ease, good humour and enough eccentricity to entertain without forgetting why we’re there. Importantly, he’s gently firm and gets what he wants out of us. We are a better company for having Adam on the team.”
