ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Adam Cole suffered from severe stage fright until he was 35. Despite this, he still managed to work as a pianist for the Atlanta Ballet, and to share the stage with such jazz greats as Nicholas Payton and Marian McPartland. He worked around Atlanta as a jazz and classical musician for many years, searching for ways to become the musician he felt he was inside. Through a combination of experiences in the piano school at Georgia State University, his work with the Feldenkrais Method(TM), and his experiences teaching children, he eventually became the musician he had always dreamed. Working in Fulton County Public Schools for eight years as a Choral Director and the Chair of General Music, he went on to specialize in helping young singers gain confidence performing in front of their peers. Wishing to extend the reach of his passion, Adam decided to create opportunities through his books, music and workshops, whereby anyone at any level could grow beyond their idea of what they can do. Adam teaches at his private studio in Grant Park, as well as at The Lovett School and the Callanwolde Arts Center. He is the author of several books about music and music pedagogy and has taught piano and voice to beginners and professionals for the last twenty years. He holds a Master of Music with an emphasis on Education from Georgia State University and a Bachelor of Arts from Oberlin College.
