Adam is the Director of TruerMU and Willow Music.  He has been featured and interviewed in numerous periodicals and podcasts from Psychology Today to Reader’s Digest.  His interviews with musicans and creatives including Liberty Devitto, Joe Alterman, and Rick Beato are followed faithfully by the TruerMU/Willow Community.

Adam never even thought of himself as a musician until he joined chorus as a high school senior ("Hey, why not?" he thought.) and suddenly felt the powerful sense of joy, belonging and purpose he'd been missing.  Too afraid to audition for the Oberlin Conservatory, he attended the college as an English major and underwent a stealth music education, taking classes in conducting, jazz piano, and musicology with the music students.  After five years at Oberlin, he headed south, took a job as a ballet accompanist, and started a jazz trio.

The road to mastery was long, and it took him through a twisted path.  A return to college to get the missing degree in music, a Masters in Music Education, twelve years teaching public school, all of these things (done while raising his growing family) gave him more and more pieces of the puzzle.  By the time he started Willow Music, he was ready to share what he knew with others.

Adam has written books about music and its relationships to other subjects like math, creative writing, and physical, mental and emotional well-being.  He has spoken in places as far away as Israel about his use of the Feldenkrais Method to improve the lives of his students.
