Brianne Ford

Jazz Musician/Educator

“creative, artistic, empowering”

With a musical resume that reads longer than those of many seasoned veterans, jazz pianist Brianne Ford has been a girl on a mission to become a star since a very early age. Born and raised in the home of Jazz, the great American city of New Orleans, Brianne Ford began her obsession with the piano at the age of seven performing in her church and mastering her craft through professional lessons. When Ford wasn’t performing on stage, she spent much of her time listening to jazz musicians on her radio. Her infatuation for the genre grew into what would become a lifelong passion for jazz artistry and sound. Growing up enthralled by the Jazz musicians and clubs of her hometown, Ford wasted no time jumping right into the heart of the jazz scene in New Orleans. Ford began playing at local clubs and attended the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (N.O.C.C.A), a gifted arts program whose alumni include Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, Nicholas Payton, and Jonathan Batiste.
