Jennifer McCabe, pianist
I started playing piano at age 6 and earned my B.A. in Piano at the Northern Illinois University School of Music from 1990-95 where I studied with internationally recognized pianists Dr. William Koehler and Mr. Donald Walker. I pursued graduate studies in Music Education and Performance at both NIU and Middle Tennessee State University where I studied with esteemed pianist Dr. Charlene Harb. Other areas of expertise have included clarinet, saxophone, singing, steel pan and percussion.
My work as a pianist, coach and music director with artists (kids and adults) from all walks of life has deepened my understanding of the creative process and improved me as a musician. I am active in the music theater, choral, instrumental and operatic communities.
*Fun fact (but not so important): I once got to run through the Elgar Cello Concerto with Marc Johnson of The Vermeer Quartet.
I grew up in the cornfields of Sycamore, IL-literally- and spent many a happy day on my grandparents farm. I am a movie buff and can regurgitate useless entertainment trivia on command. Accompanying is my dream job. I love animals and have a super cat named Percy-shes a girl, by the way. I love to laugh and have many good friends who fill my life with joy and love.
