I have been teaching private violin, viola and piano lessons in the Valley since 1980. I also have 38 years of experience teaching public school orchestra. I enjoy working with young musicians ages 6-18. I have a passion for teaching and watching my students progress.
I get an extreme amount of pleasure from working with my students and fine tuning my approach to fit their individual needs. I know that their study of a musical instrument is enhancing their intelligences and developing a life long skill set that will provide them with countless hours of enjoyment.
First visit was wonderful. Janice was very kind and professional. My son had his very first lesson today. He said, ‘’she inspires me.’’ I can’t think of a better first day.
Mrs. Williams is a skilled musician and teacher, and has a wonderful way of relating to her students. My daughter has been taking lessons for almost four years now and absolutely loves Mrs. Williams. We both recommend her highly!
Miss Janice has been teaching my son piano lessons for the last 2 years. She is an excellent teacher and a very patient, energetic and kind person. She cares about her students and has a true passion for music and teaching. I have loved watching her teach my son piano and seeing how much he has learned is amazing. We always look forward to our weekly time with Janice. I would definitely recommend her to others looking for a private lessons!
The first lesson is free. We chat to get to know one another, I go over some basic information for beginners and assess the ability level of students who have previous experience.
I have a bachelors degree in Music Education. I have been teaching private piano, violin, and viola lessons, and well as teaching public school orchestra for my entire adult life.
I charge $20 for a half hour lesson.
