I teach the beginning (and possibly the intermediate) piano student how to read music, general music theory, but I also teach how to read and play chords. I want to give the student a feeling of independence during their practice time. I also want the student to develop an excellent ear. Learning chords and their progressions helps the student free up their playing in a way that it give them the ability to noodle on their own, playing away from the music, as well. These lessons provide the student more than just reading from a page of music.

About Janice C.

Hello! I am a professional music in the Pittsburgh area. I teach beginning piano and also clarinet and saxophone. My love is jazz and also new age and classical music. My absolute specialty, as a clarinetist, is klezmer music! I have a band KleZlectic and I also play with many other groups in town. I am very interested in teaching students how to not only play an instrument, but how to create music with their chosen instrument. I am very patient and I enjoy having a good time while teaching. I'm looking forward to meeting you!

Janice has been incredibly helpful in helping me achieve my lifelong dream of playing the piano. She is very patient, explains things clearly, and always picks the exactly right lessons and materials to help me understand and practice the things that are challenging to me. She is also really good at understanding what I enjoy and tailoring lessons to make them both fun while learning the basic foundations I need to grow. I highly recommend Janice for piano lessons! She loves music and teaching and it shows!
