Margie Balter Features on ABC’s ‘Scandal’
Composer, entertainer, and “Piano Teacher to the Stars” Margie Balter is helping to set the stage for this week’s episode of Scandal, a show on ABC TV.
“Bluesie,” an original song from her CD “Music from My Heart: Solo Piano Pieces by Margie Balter” will be featured on tomorrow night’s episode of the Emmy-nominated show starring Emmy-nominee Kerry Washington.
“As a viewer, I’m a huge fan of the show, and as a musician, I have great respect for how the producers of ‘Scandal’ use music to help set the tone and advance the story line,” said Balter.
Balter’s “star” students include Holly Hunter (The Piano), Tom Cruise
(Interview with the Vampire), Sandra Bullock (The Net), Scarlett Johansson, Jack Black
, Greg Kinnear, and more.
Her compositions have been featured in movies such as Date Night , starring Tina Fey and Steve Carell, and Beauty Shop, among others.
Balter is an active member of the Playing For Change Foundation National Advisory Board. In September, the performance of Balter and her students was the highlight of the 3rd Annual International Playing For Change Day Concert.
