About Janis V.

LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA Hi, I teach local lessons at my home in Southern California, travel to you within a 5 mile radius or succesfully teach on-line lessons via Takelessons.com. I teach all ages of students and have experience with ADHD children. Cancellation Policy: Music Lesson Cancellation and Payment Policy 2020 Dear Valued Clients, Payment for lessons are due at lesson time or pre-paid. With respect to my students, and in keeping with the cost of doing business, the following charges will apply when a lesson is cancelled. *If cancellation occurs within 48-24 hours of the lesson, there will be a $15 fee. *If cancellation occurs within 24-12 hours there will be a $25 fee. *Same day cancellation will incur full payment of lesson due previous to next lesson if student is not ill. (See below)* With the understanding that unforeseen events arise, a cancellation fee will be waived, as a one-time courtesy as long as you notify at least one hour before class. In addition, consideration will be given for postponing, as opposed to cancelling, a lesson within the same week if schedules allow. A $5.00 fee may be charged, at my discretion, if lesson needs to be moved to one of my days off. *Illness is on the honor system and there will be no charge for illness cancellation except if within 4 hours of lesson time. $25.00 Thank you for your understanding,

I wanted to explore the ukulele after having thought about it for a while. I want to learn it in a fun way and I found Janis. She is an energetic and friendly teacher who is so good at bringing the musical side out of you. If you're looking for a teacher to guide you into learning a completely new instrument in a fun way, Janis is the one.

The teacher was very kind and helpful. Normally I am very shy, and I have low confidence in my self, but with Janis I felt good and comfortable. Thank you so much.
