Our Mission

Daniel Grantham

I am originally from Austin, Texas. In 2014, I earned a Master of Music degree in music theory from the University of North Texas and in 2007 I earned a Bachelor of Music degree in french horn performance from the University of Southern Mississippi. 

 

I am mainly active as a composer and have had pieces performed in Italy, Germany, and across the US. I have played french horn for 20+ years, piano for 15 years, and have been singing professionally for 6 years. I enjoy teaching piano. One of the best parts of teaching is watching a student learn a piece of music and love and engage with it in a new way. In my free time I enjoy playing video games and catching a revival movie at the Charles or the Senator Theatre. My favorite food is pineapple.

Bro. Moziah Saleem

I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. My primary instrument is the drum set and I learned African drumming when I went to Nashville, Tennessee in 1988. I attended workshops and studied with the great Babatunde Olatunji. I was able to journey through a successful career in music which led to a Grammy-winning percussion performance on "Handel's Messiah: A Soulful Celebration" produced by the legendary Quincy Jones. Music is meaningful to me because of the way it moves the spirit of people when you participate in it. It is a spiritual process that awakens my ancestors allowing me to then honor my ancestors.

In my free time, I enjoy Baseball, meeting different people and musicians, and sharing my blessings with people from all walks of life. My favorite food is Jerk Chicken, Cabbage, Rice and Peas, and Sweet Potatoes.

Our Mission

Camille Scott

I was born in Southern New Jersey and relocated to Northeast Baltimore in 2011. My primary instrument is percussion. I developed my craft through training at the Baltimore School for the Arts with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra percussionist John Locke. Music is not only therapeutic but it is also a universal language that speaks to people from all walks of life! Outside of music, I enjoy self-education. I am an autodidact who enjoys reading and researching on the topic of financial literacy. My favorite food is tacos.

David Pearl

I am from Baltimore, MD but I lived in Philadelphia for 20 years where I studied jazz performance at University of the Arts in Philadelphia. I have 20+ years of teaching private drum and piano lessons working with differently abled populations of Special Education, Beginner, to Advanced students. 

Music offers me a sanctuary to express myself creatively, communicate and connect with deeply and authentically. I teach piano and drums with BTNF. I love teaching children and youth because they are curious, excited to learn about new things, and are not afraid to be themselves in the moment! My favorite hobby is cooking and my favorite food is pho.

Our Mission

Tianna Jackson

I am a music educator from Brooklyn, New York. I studied Music Education and Classical Voice at Howard University. To me, music is such a powerful expressive art form and being able to sing with others and explore various emotions through music is what fulfills me. At BTNF, I am the choir teacher and I love being able to watch our students grow, whether it be in learning new songs or vocal techniques, or even gaining courage to sing a solo. My favorite hobby which I recently discovered is painting! My favorite food is New York style pizza!
