Leonieke Scheuble Leonieke Scheuble

Leonieke Scheuble is a gifted pianist and jazz organist who has a rare talent for blues and jazz improvisation at an unusually young age. Born to an engineer mother and a musician father in 2002, she was given a Dutch name after her parents lived in the Netherlands on assignment and developed an affection for Holland and the Dutch people. Her namesake is the Dutch pianist, Leonieke Vermeer.

Leonieke (phonetically pronounced “lay-o-nee-ka”) started to play piano sometime after being inspired by “Ray,” a movie based on the life of Ray Charles. Without any prior musical training, she began to spend great lengths of time at the piano creating songs that were rhythmically interesting and compositionally balanced. This was at age 5 or 6.

At age 7, Leonieke recorded a handful of pieces including two of her own compositions. This was brought to the attention of Steve Ash, a highly respected Jazz pianist, who then agreed to take her on as a student. She has been with him ever since. As her love of Jazz, Blues, Soul and Gospel motivated her to develop her musical skills, Leonieke has been receiving a great deal of attention and is afforded some wonderful opportunities.

Among them would be winning the 2013 International Women in Jazz “Youth in Action” Award (eligible to female jazz musicians under 18 years of age) presented in performance at “The Jazz Church” (St. Peter’s Church in Manhattan). Other performances followed though The IWJ, Jazz Foundation of America and “Rome Neal presents.” She has also performed in fundraisers for The Un-Domiciled Project (Brooklyn, NY), American Cancer Society (Rockaway, NJ) and The Victoria Soto Memorial Scholarship (Woodstock, CT).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
