Founded in 2003 as the private music teaching studio of Steinway Artist Susan Merdinger, Sheridan Music Studio evolved to become in 2012 an independent record label and the not-for-profit music organization representing the creative vision of Founder and Artistic Director, Steinway Artist, Susan Merdinger.
Through our professional association with Airbnb Experiences and TripAdvisor Experiences, Sheridan Music Studio House Concerts and Music with A View℠ are now active offerings on International platforms, enabling travelers and local residents to come and experience our music and musicians "live" in the comfort, intimacy and beauty of the Sheridan Music Studio.
We also offer private instruction for Piano, Strings and Voice, offered by distinguished artists such as Eastman School of Music-trained Sarah Greene, Viola and Violin; Cantor Stefanie Greene, Soprano ( University of Rochester and Hebrew Union College), as well as Private Piano Instruction and Collaborative Piano services offered by Yale School of Music- trained pianists-Susan Merdinger and Steven Greene.
We are proud to have had our own Composer-in-Residence, the Grammy-nominated Composer, Ilya Levinson, who has been commissioned to compose several works for Pianissimo!, Sheridan Solisti and the CSO's Tononi Ensemble, and has dedicated them to us. The 2020-2021 season featured a new "Dybbuk" Piano Trio by Professor Levinson in the Music with a View Concert Series!
