Jeanine's earliest childhood memories have always involved music and performance. A NYC native, she has been playing music practically all of her life: piano at age 4, flute at age 7, tenor sax at age 9, and bassoon at age 14. In high school, she learned how to play the guitar, and in college, the bass and drums. During these years she was also very involved with her schools' concert/jazz/symphony/marching bands as well as their musical theatre programs. One notable band performance being at the esteemed Carnegie Hall on flute at the age of 9. She received her bachelor’s degree in theatre performance and elementary education, and studied theatre for half a year in London. Years later, she continued her studies there, but in music (vocals/music production) at a contemporary music school. Past credits include: nursery/music school teacher, music/play & learn teacher at Gymboree, church youth group band leader for 12-18 year olds, and music therapist for elderly people, adults with autism, and children in hospitals.
