Classically-influenced jazz pianist/composer Adam Berenson has been described by author and Juilliard professor David Dubal as:

"what is needed in our over specialized society-- a true polyartist-- Pianist, Playwright, Composer, Teacher, Humanist, and a man to get to know because in his smooth, respectful style, Mr. Berenson has a lot to show and tell us about art, behavior, and the ability to survive with humor in a harsh and rough time where we have decided art is not of utmost importance."

Mr. Berenson's music reflects a wide range of influences, including Keith Jarrett, Eric Satie, Anton Webern, Ornette Coleman, Helmut Lachenmann, Gary Burton and Gyorgy Ligeti. Accessible and challenging, tonal and non-tonal, Mr. Berenson's music ranges from minimal cool expressionism to an unbridled romanticism. A complete discography of Mr. Berenson's work is available here.

Beyond his activities as a performer/composer, Mr. Berenson's interests run to journalism. He was formerly the Philadelphia correspondent for the internationally published Pulse! Magazine and was a contributor to the Philadelphia Weekly newspaper.

Adam Berenson has completed a Master's degree in Jazz Studies at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, where he worked with pianist Paul Bley, bassist Cecil McBee, and composers Lee Hyla, Robert Ceely, and John Heiss among others. Earlier studies included a scholarship for classical piano at Syracuse University as well as a BFA in film production from the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU.
