    Love Jan!

  • Jane Skrivan

    Jan is the perfect piano teacher for me, a 75 year old learner. She applies just the right amount of pressure along with a great sense of humor.

Ask the teacher what they love most about teaching piano. Find out which teaching methods they use.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Ask themselves what they want from playing piano. What type of music do you like? Are you willing to practice? Are you willing to take time and progress slowly?
