Adcock earned MM, artist diploma, and DMA from Peabody Conservatory, where he studied with Leon Fleisher and Ellen Mack, and was adjunct faculty in theory and chamber music.

He is currently associate piano faculty at Sarasota Music Festival, a faculty member of Washington Conservatory in Bethesda, MD, and artistic director of the UU Chalice Concert Series in Columbia, MD.
