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 and Rick Beato are followed faithfully by the TruerMU/Willow Community.
Adam never considered himself 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 in music performance he'd been missing. At Oberlin College, he disguised himself as an English major while undergoing a stealth music education in the world famous Conservatory of Music, taking classes in conducting, jazz piano, and musicology. After five years at Oberlin, he headed south, took a job as company pianist with the Atlanta Ballet, and started the Adam Cole Trio.
Adam's road to mastery took him along a twisted path. A sojourn at Georgia State University to get 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 ways to foster his musical growth. By the time he started Willow Music, he was ready to share what he knew with others.
Adam has written books about music education 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 enhance music instruction.
