Immersive Programs for the Adult Pianist


SEPTEMBER 14 – 19, 2022

To take up residence at Adamant Music School is to immerse oneself in country living. The music school is surrounded by trees and grassy meadows, and there is stillness all around. The main building, Barney Hall, houses the dining hall, bedrooms and a practice/teaching salon. Chase House also provides bedrooms and practice studios. In addition, there are dozens of individual practice studios spread out over the grounds, each accommodating two grand pianos. You will never bother your neighbor or “disturb the peace” when you practice, as no two walls are touching among the practice studios.


Playing good music demands good eating! Piano Works In Progress, Vermont, puts equal emphasis on having an excellent culinary experience as well as a musical one. Chef Mark Miller creates a balanced menu that accommodates food preferences, while celebrating the bounty that is Vermont in late August, with an abundance of ingredients sourced from small, independent farms.
