In 1921, Edwine Behre founded the Modern Piano School in New York City. The Modern Piano School, also known as Edwine Behre and Associates, was a loose collaboration of professional piano teachers headed by Behre. Twenty years later, in 1942, the Adamant Music School, a residential summer program for pianists, was founded by Edwine Behre together with her friends Alice Mary Kimball and Harry Godfrey. For more on the founding of the School, read about its history here.


As the piano programs grew and prospered, a more formal organizational structure was needed. In 1955, Behre Piano Associates was incorporated to manage the Adamant Music School, and in 1959 the organization was designated a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization by the IRS. For over 60 years, Behre Piano Associates, Inc. has been operating the Adamant Music School in Adamant, Vermont.
