My love of music began in the 4th grade when I had my first piano lesson. At that first lesson I knew I wanted to be a music teacher. I’ve pursued that dream and have been teaching for approximately 35 years.  

I've had experience with all ages and levels of students. I am also a church organist and music director and I have taught general/vocal music in the public & private school systems for 24 years. I have had the pleasure of being an adjudicator for the Pennsylvania Piano Student Festival. I am a member of the Maryland State Teachers Association, Greater Baltimore Music Teachers Assoc., Baltimore Music Teachers Association, Harford County Music Teachers Association, The Early Music Society of Baltimore, National Federation of Music Clubs, Bach in Baltimore Chorus , The Welsh Choir in Delta, Pa. and the American Guild of Organist.

I graduated from the College of Notre Dame University with a BA & MM Degree in Music Education. I am also certified to teach English. I have continued my private studies throughout the years with many notable professors. I attend piano teaching workshops on a regular basis to stay up-to-date with new teaching materials.

My students are taught a complete knowledge of music foundations. I focus on giving them the same love of music that I have had since 4th grade.

Some reviews from students and parents:

My 8 year old is so enthusiastic about piano. Jean has been able to get right to his level and feed that enthusiasm. We left the lesson and Tyler said he wanted to be a famous pianist like Mozart...thank you Jean for showing us how to star.

Jean is a wonderful teacher. She's dedicated and patient with her students. With a great music background, Jean has given our kids (two of her students) great music & piano techniques/methodology and a way to approach music that is by far superior to that of any of the previous piano teachers. She is agile in her approach to teaching piano with the belief that not one teaching method is applicable to all kids.

Mrs. Jean is an awesome piano teacher. She has a lot of patience when she teachers and has very good technique. At her house I practice on a grand piano, it is great!
