Adam Faulk

Pianist, Adam Faulk has continued on the path. His unwavering commitment to art has fostered a reputation as not only a favorite of Philadelphia, but a fixture in the global music scene as an educator, composer and pianist.

Raised between both the Boston suburb West Medford, and the city of Philadelphia, Adam was consistently surrounded by music since birth.

It was in high school that Adam began his journey on piano, after being introduced to the music of pianists such as Herbie Hancock and Wynton Kelly. He began studying at the New England Conservatory with George W. Russell Jr., and later earned his Bachelor's degree from The Oberlin Conservatory of Music.
