I began playing piano at the age of 3 1/2 by ear, listening to music of the 1960s such as The Beatles and Broadway musicals. When I was 15, I started 2 years of classical lessons, and, because my ear was so well developed, was given the opportunity to learn Fur Elise by Beethoven at my second lesson. I had begun teaching the piece to myself after hearing it played on a movie soundtrack. I began my studies at Berklee College of Music in 1979, taking jazz piano and vocal lessons, as well as classes in ear training, theory, and arranging, along with various ensembles and labs. Following my years at Berklee, I played in a number of different bands and had a record produced on which I wrote and sang 4 songs, arranged background vocals, and played piano. This recording received Northeast regional airplay and was one of the highlights of my musical career. I have been teaching piano in the Capital District of New York since 1997, with students ranging in age from 4 to 71, and of various ...

About MaryAnn

I have over 50 years of playing experience and have been teaching piano to beginners and intermediate players in the Capital District since 1997. I look forward to hearing from you to start or enhance your musical experience.

I took lessons with Mary Ann Barker for many years. I have learned many pieces with her, including Beethoven’s Für Elise and Piano Man by Billy Joel. She is a great teacher and I highly recommend taking lessons with her for anyone interested in learning piano.

My 2 10 years old boys have been studying piano for over 3 years. MaryAnn is a great teacher and fabulous with kids
Christine
I am 61 years old, work full-time and have limited time for practicing. I have had 2 previous piano teachers who do not compare to Mary Ann’s level of thoroughness and patience, and ability to diagnose an issue I am having, offering an easy fix, making learning to read music much easier. Most times, it’s a matter of slowing down, setting the metronome to a slower speed. She does not rush me. I “show up” and she encourages and teaches me to have fun.

When it comes to being an artist, making money is always a struggle. Being a self-employed freelance artist/teacher/musician for several years now, I have learned a lot of valuable lessons that I'm happy to share with anyone else willing to pursue what they love as a career.

All artistic occupations are welcome, however, my coaching is available to ANY occupation as long as you are looking to improve :)

Through my coaching sessions, you will explore and refine: Your Brand, Your Business, Your Artistic Identity, and anything else you would like to develop more.

No one on this planet knows you like you know yourself. My job as your coach isn't to change who you are, it is to bring out the best within you so you can change the world in the way you want to. My job is to help you find and build consistency within yourself, so that you can better thrive in this inconsistent world.

I am happy to answer any questions you have, and look forward to hearing from you soon. Wishing ...

"Jenny does a great job!

I have little background in music, but with others playing instruments in my home, I decided to learn the piano. I knew Jenny gave lessons, so I immediately contacted her about arranging to teach me. I've chosen to learn to play by actually learning some more advanced material. She has been exceptionally patient and understanding; I don't always get to practice as much as I would like due to other commitments. Jenny has shared techniques and her years of wisdom to help me progress. I have been working with Jenny for about 8 months and am pleased with the progress I am making. I highly recommend her!"
