Words to describe my teaching style
Helping students achieve their full potential in music


Jana has a diverse musical background that she brings to her teaching. Along with being a pianist, she is a clarinetist, bass clarinetist, and composer. Jana uses her studies in music to teach a comprehensive music education.


In addition to learning piano repertoire, students will improvise, compose, and write music. Jana believes that practicing at home is an important foundation of learning the piano. She starts each lesson with a discussion of how practicing went while being encouraging of good practicing habits.


Jana teaches students from age 5 to adults. When working with young children, she emphasizes fun and creativity.


Jana enjoys gardening and painting in her spare time.
