About Adam Scott Clifford

Adam Scott Clifford is an energetic pianist, violinist, composer, and teacher with the mission to break boundaries in and beyond music. Adam’s musical background extends beyond performance and pedagogy into composition, conducting, production and recording, and piano restoration. In July of 2022, Adam will make his solo-orchestral debut in Italy, performing Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto with the Perugia Symphony Orchestra, followed by recital engagements in August in Tignes, France.

Adam released his first album, a self-produced and self-recorded selection of works by Franz Liszt, in August 2021, followed by a self-titled album of his own improvisations in February 2022. In 2018, Adam founded Keys & Company School of Music, a piano-centric music school in a high traffic storefront in Hoboken, New Jersey. Adam has performed extensively throughout the United States. In 2017, Adam was invited by The Williamsburg Music Club to premiere “The Seven Ages of Man,” a suite for solo piano by Williamsburg, Virginia-based composer Stephen Moore. An accomplished violinist, Adam served as concertmaster of the Virginia Beach Chamber Orchestra from 2010-12, as well as assistant concertmaster from 2009-10. Adam’s primary teachers include pianist Alexandre Moutouzkine and violinist Dora Marshall Mullins. Adam lives in Norfolk, Virginia and enjoys teaching and spending time outdoors with his two Jack Russells, Alfie and Clara.
