Jeanette composes music that takes the listener on a spiritual journey.

Originally from New York City, Jeanette began to compose music and develop what is uniquely her own style of music. “The kind of music I write is a reiaction, I think, to the hectic lifestyle that is so much a part of New York City . In New York, there is so much noise.” Her influences are those of David Lanz, Yanni, George Winson, Suzanne Cianni, Will Ackerman, Jim Brickman, and Narada Artists Eric Tingstad and Nancy Rumbel.
Jeanette performs in and around the San Diego area to promote her music and CD. She is actively promoting her music for use in film and commercials. She is available for corporate events, festivals, wedding ceremonies, and other special occasions. She performs at events either solo piano, or as a duo with a violinist and also as a trio with other musicians, on cello and percussion. She can bring along her own keyboard and portable sound system, if necessary.
