After graduating with a BA from UC Berkeley, I have always worked with students, whether tutoring privately, teaching piano, or teaching in a classroom. I am very patient, positive and motivating. I have taken private piano lessons since I was 6 years old and have had 5 wonderful piano teachers throughout the years.

Janice has instructed our 10 year old daughter for about a year. When we began lessons, our daughter had no experience with piano. A year later, our daughter loves playing and says that Janice is patience, kind and motivating. Janice is professional, yet personable and relates well to her student. We are very pleased with Janice and would highly recommend her.
