Not only is Jill an accomplished pianist (she has been a musician since she was 5 years old) she is also a composer. Jill has composed music and released two CDs that have been utilized as music therapy in hospices. This particular vocation started at her grandfather’s hospice in Maryland where the center provided her music to all the patients. She has since offered her CDs to all hospices in Florida. “I just sent them the mu- sic” she exclaimed. Hospice by the Sea was so happy with the effect of the soothing music on their patients that their Board voted to buy CD players for every patient’s room. Jill explains her philosophy, “I call it composing with a purpose. For me, music is something from the heart that resonates with people that need it. It is a good use of music as a medium. Every artist wants to reach out and touch people. It’s a gift, I feel lucky”.Jill operates out of her studio at 200 NE 2nd Avenue (Suite 111) in the CityWalk Building in Pineapple Grove. She always had a dream to have a storefront with a baby grand piano in the window and now she has it. Studio 8 is a place to teach but it is also a venue for other piano players to play and promote their own music. “We have gatherings in the evenings where musicians can try out their music to an appreciative audience.” When asked why she chose Pine- apple Grove she replied “Because I love it! The vibe here is so down to earth, artsy, funky, walkable and not pretentious. Delray Beach is the epitome of an artsy town. Being in Pineapple Grove is a dream come true. In Pineapple Grove you have the feeling of being embraced as an artist.” She returns that embrace by showcasing works from other art- LVWV VXFK DV ÀRUDO GHVLJQHU -RVHSK Roehm and photographers and artists whose works grace the walls of the studio.

Sometimes I come into the Studio at night and open my door and play out into the street for the diners to hear.
