I am a pianist, award winning ensemble and choir director, former public and private school teacher of all ages and subjects, including band, piano, choral, and music theory. I graduated from Winthrop University with a Bachelor of Music Education and minor in Elementary Ed. Choral music, musicals, ensembles, and private as well as group lessons are some of my most satisfying experiences. My true passion is to instill in my students a genuine love for music. Any person of any age can learn to play music for a profession or just for pure enjoyment. I teach students to read music, play by ear, transpose, and expose them to contemporary music using chord sheets, based on their goals.
Jan has been teaching me basic to intermediate piano skills for many years (I'm a slow learner) and my new found passion for music is not only fun, relaxing & therapeutic but a great conversation starter! I never imagined a new talent could turn me into an extrovert. It's by far the wisest investment I've made in years. Highly recommend Jan to anyone!
Mrs. Sharpe was the best teacher I've ever had! She's awesome at what she does...recommend for sure!! Definitely a thumbs up from me 👍🏼
Your love for children and music makes you a perfect teacher. As for adults, I am sure the Janice I know would delight in opening that world to anyone.
Mrs. Jan is awesome! I have loved working with her in the past and she has proven to have a heart of gold.
Mrs. Sharpe is a very talented and accomplished musician and teacher. Students are very comfortable with her and tend to accomplish so much with her as their teacher. She is very creative and brings that creativity out in her students. I highly recommend her as a teacher and as a musician in her field!!+ Read More
Mrs. Sharpe has a fun approach to helping kids learn to play the piano with confidence. She is professional and kind!
My experience as a new student with Jan has been extremely rewarding so far! Her knowledge of music is exceptional & her patience teaching a beginner level student was exactly what I needed. I would highly recommend Jan to any age or experience level!
