Adam Paltrowitz is a master educator, composer, conductor, and clinician. 

During his 25-year tenure as the Director of Choral Activities at Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School in New York, his groups have toured throughout Europe, Canada, and the United States.

What makes his choirs unique is his belief that anyone can sing; as a result, his ensembles are always self-selected, while maintaining the highest standard of musical excellence. He also has pioneered a philosophy that every student is a soloist. All students in his choirs continually learn and perform solo repertoire in various languages. Adam's choral program has also gained great acclaim for the cultivation of eight student-run a-cappella ensembles; some of these ensembles have performed on national and local television programs.

Adam earned his B.S. in music education from New York University, M.A. in vocal pedagogy from Columbia University - Teacher's College, and Ed.M. choral conducting from Columbia University - Teacher's College.

His weekly blog, Choral Clarity, has gained a large international audience as it provides a unique perspective to both the role of the choral director and the empowerment of all students.

Adam's online, on demand courses have helped thousands of choral educators and their students. HOW TO TEACH ANYONE TO MATCH PITCH! and CHOIR CRASH COURSE: 1ST DAYS OF CHOIR (AND BEYOND) PREP are setting the standard for practical choral education.


His choral compositions and arrangements have been performed by choirs around the world; many are available on his Choral Clarity instant download platform.

Please join the Choral Clarity Facebook Group for an interactive and introspective conversation about finding our own choral vision.

Adam resides in New York with his wife, Blair Goldberg, a professional Broadway actress, and their daughter, Lyla, and son, Nolan.
