Cancelled – Cranford August 10 Pianist Leonieke Scheuble

August 10 @ 6:00 pm 8:30 pm EDT

Event cancelled due to inclement weather -Rain

Leonieke Scheuble – Organist Pianist

Nina Simone learned to play music by ear, which is not normally accepted, and Nina did not let that hold her back. Our Generations of Jazz bandleader is Leonieke Scheuble who did not formally learn to play music. As her dad recounted, Leonieke (phonetically pronounced “lay-o-nee-ka”) Scheuble started to play piano after being inspired by “Ray,” a movie based on the life of Ray Charles. Without any prior musical training, she began to spend great lengths of time at the piano creating pieces that were rhythmically interesting and compositionally balanced. She was 5 or 6.

As she said within her No Boundaries | Leonieke Scheuble | TEDxLehighRiver when she was 13, Jazz is her classroom and the learning as you go process is what makes Jazz so special and you learn in the moment. Take a listen. It’s very enlightening, informative and has a wonderful piano performance. The bottom line is Leonieke encourages children and adults alike to think, dream, and achieve without boundaries.

Leonieke was honored to be selected by Carnegie Hall/Weill Music Institute as an alternate musician for their 2018 NYO JAZZ season. She can be seen performing regularly as a featured artist or leading her trio at many of New York and New Jersey’s finest Jazz venues.
