Piano Instructor

Cindy Kearney

Cindy Kearney has been playing piano since she was 8 years old and has never looked back. She studied jazz at Georgia State University while living in Atlanta and also studied privately with various jazz pros in the Atlanta area. Since then she has been performing with different groups over the years, both as a keyboard player and a vocalist. Once she became a mom of two small children, she added teaching to her music repertoire back in 2006. She has taught the Music for Young Children curriculum for upwards of twelve years and has also been teaching private piano and vocal lessons since then at Hungry Monk Music in Charleston. Other music endeavors in the last 20 years still include performing with her band J.A.N.E., playing occasional gigs with other musicians (Charleston Music Hall), and recording music.
