I teach music to kids, and Kids ONLY!
I only teach in studio, not online, as I believe in being very present and in place with children. I regard them as individuals with differing potentials and personalities. so lessons are custom taylored to your child, after a month of assessing during first lessons. I need to know WHO THEY ARE, in order to best teach them individually, and that is best achieved face to face, one on one.
PLEASE READ MY REVIEWS FIRST! See what other parents say about MISS JANE! thank you.
I specialize in getting young children engaged in lessons and excited about music. I work with special needs, learning issues, LGBTQ kids and empathic/sensitive kids or shy/anxious kids. as well as gifted and ANY other kids.
My goal is to help your child learn to love music... IN THEIR OWN WAY.
What exactly they learn is not quite as important as how happy they are to learn, and that they want to come to lesson and they want to show you what they can play. I want them to be excited about music, as I AM!
We do learn to read music, to play scales, to listen to and appreciate music and we mix up popular songs with the traditional classical pieces.
Kids get to experiment with different instruments in the studio and they love it! Lots of kids add instruments or change instruments during their time with me. Some kids end up playing them ALL.
Music is a great tool for teaching LIFE LESSONS. I use music as a way to LIFE COACH and MENTOR my kids through the rigors of childhood.
I can show them how MUSIC is a tool to turn life challenges and events into personal art, and how it is a weapon against the rages of the teenage brain and rumination. I help them find their own personal RESET BUTTON through music. And I start early to help them understand this process and train them in controlling overwhelming emotions or anxiety through the daily practice of music.
Music produces ENDORPHINS, SEROTONIN and DOPAMINE. Dopamine must be present for a brain to learn. So Music improves schooling in a BIG WAY! Kids who practice before school see a huge jump in reading, math and comprehension, within three months of starting lessons and usually jump a level in reading.
Music changes the brain and raises the IQ up to 9 points every day you practice~! That translates to better school grades and better functioning in life. 66% of all MEDICAL SCHOOL STUDENTS are music majors.
I have 10 albums releases, two EMMY AWARDS for PBS NATURE DOCUMENTARY SOUNDTRACKS and currently run a jazz trio doing live shows monthly. at 60 years old, I STILL LIVE MUSIC everyday!
I teach all the instruments a kid could want to play, EXCEPT BRASS. If they want to learn flute, clarinet, violin along with the usual PIANO/DRUMS/BASS/GUITAR then we do that. I can help them with school band also.
Kids learn to read music, learn to keep rhythm, learn music theory, and how to change their brain with music practice. We also use Macs and Garage band to create music and I teach them how to use recording software so they can do this at home!
It's always a great, fun day in MISS JANE's MUSIC STUDIO!
Come join me now, I am located right by the Clark County Fairground. Slots are limited and fill up fast at the start of school each year.
Please consult me BEFORE Purchasing any instruments, as I know the best deals and the best fit!
