Dustin Adams merges formal knowledge and on-stage experience into lessons that rock and roll students into a variety of instrument lessons. After a free consultation, lessons will be designed to harmonize with each student’s experience and abilities, allowing both novices and veterans to progress in rhythm with their own internal metronomes. Piano, drum, and guitar lessons emphasize fluency in the language of music, with students learning to read, write, and translate tunes into Esperanto. Other aspects vary by instrument: percussionists practice drumstick dexterity to tap out beats and skewer sushi; pianists perform scale and chord exercises and study the art of improvisation; and guitarists make strings croon with picking and finger-style techniques. Lessons take place in Adams’ home studio or can be conducted over the Internet via web cam.
Multiple outdoor ranges accommodate Patriot Outdoors' firearms classes, which are designed for all skill levels. They also sell bows, firearms, and gear and accessories. The facility's open skies and desert landscapes also serve as the backdrop for paintball fields, including two speedball fields and one 4-acre field with various obstacles. For something different, an indoor rock-climbing gym presents members with areas designated for top-rope climbing and bouldering. Different routes challenge beginner, intermediate, and advanced climbers.
Climbers of all experience levels clamber vertically inside Amarillo Rock Climbing House. Beginners test their skills on low walls, and more advanced grapplers defy gravity on a high wall that juts diagonally. Instructors teach climbing techniques and safety practices in private and group classes, and partners learn to secure each other in harnesses during belay lessons. Climbing shoes, harnesses, and other equipment are available at the facility.
