About Jessica Roemischer
Jessica Roemischer is an internationally acclaimed pianist, writer, and teacher whose transformational model, The Duet Paradigm(R) has been developed over the course of three decades working with individuals of all ages and backgrounds. In performances, workshops, coaching sessions, retreats and lessons, Jessica is sharing the catalytic power of her work.
A consummate artist, her piano interpretations have a rare beauty and authenticity. More than just an accomplished solo musician, Jessica calls upon her abilities to help awaken others to their own true nature. Using her pioneering approach to piano duet improvisation, The Duet Paradigm(R) Jessica has improvised side-by-side at the piano with hundreds of individuals, including those with disabilities. Her wide experience has given rise to a profound understanding of the human condition while revealing the dynamics of healing and change. The result: a potent transformational framework that can be applied with or without music in personal, educational, organizational, and geo-political contexts.
Born into a musical family, Jessica began piano at age six and was improvising and composing from the outset. Her pedagogical lineage through her mother, pianist Miriam Roemischer, links directly to Frederic Chopin and Ludwig van Beethoven. Captivated by the timeless beauty of classical music, Jessica was also a “child of the ’60’s” (and ’70’s) and found herself equally as compelled by the soaring harmonies of Crosby, Stills, and Nash, the inimitable guitar of Led Zeppelin, and the hypnotic vocalizations of Van Morrison. Learning to play her favorite songs by ear, she simultaneously pursued classical piano studies with Marilyn Sophos and won awards at the Westchester (NY) Symphony and Westchester Conservatory Concerto competitions, among others.
Since graduating magna cum laude from Princeton University in 1982, Jessica has taught on four continents. Her innovative work in music is informed by a life-long study of philosophy, aesthetics, spirituality and evolutionary thought.
