Tucked in the Green Mountains of Vermont, an old, white-framed house sits beside a waterfall. Over the rhythm of the flowing water, the sound of pianos playing converges from all directions. What seems at first like a remote and deserted place reveals itself to be a veritable hive of activity centered around a love for the piano. Twenty-eight studios are hidden in these woods as well as a concert hall. And each summer, 30 select participants from around the world come to experience 'total piano' at the Adamant Music School.
We have 41 grand pianos (mostly Steinways) with 23 private forest practice studios located off trails in the woods of the 200-acre campus.
There are numerous performance opportunities in the Adamant Community Hall, a performance space that contains two Steinway grand pianos.

The listening room contains hundreds of CDs and LPs available from the Music Library in Barney Hall.
Barney Hall is a former pool hall, parsonage, and lodging house that now holds the Dining Hall, practice studio, bedrooms, and daily activities for the school. Residences include 5 student residences with private bedrooms.
All meals are covered – breakfast is self-service and lunch and evening meals are prepared by our very own chef.
Faculty and participants are housed together in buildings throughout the campus. Each participant has a private room. Each house has at least two common bathrooms that are shared among residents. Wi-fi is also available.
