About Me

I teach all piano/keyboard lessons. I use the Piano Adventures series, as well as supplemental books, and fun books. I focus on learning to play the piano and the theory that goes behind playing any musical instrument. I also offer a music reward system when certain tasks are completed. Students have the opportunity to win prizes.

As a studio we hold two recitals each year (May and December). We also offer monthly Music Theory Days (students play music theory games in a group setting). If the opportunity arises we also go on field trips (to see a show, or watch a professional pianist perform).

My Musical Education Background

I have been playing the piano for 26 years, and singing for just as long. I have owned my own business teaching piano for the last 14 years. I also accompany for school and church choirs, and for schools looking for Solo/Ensemble accompanists. I have played on a regular basis for church services in the past as well.

I have a degree in Organizational Administration from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.

I truly enjoy teaching!

Genres and Subjects Taught

I am willing to teach anything a student is wanting to learn. My favorite things to play include: broadway showtunes, sacred music, and Christmas music, but I do not push one genre over another on students. I do believe students need to finish a lesson series, but not without fun stuff thrown in, and I do believe students need to understand classical music. For recitals students are allowed to pick any piece they would like to play.

Lesson Rates

Lessons are given once per week at a rate of $20.00/half hour.

If two students in the same immediate family sign up for lessons, the second (third, fourth etc.) student will receive a 10% discount.

You may pay weekly, monthly, partial semester (twice during the semester), or full semester.  You may pay cash, check, or with a credit card.

Rates are as Follows (per lesson):

One Student = $20.00

Two Students = $38.00

Three Students = $56.00

Four Students = $74.00

Ages / Skill Levels Taught

As long as the student can read they are more than welcome to take lessons. Between 6-8 is a great age to start lessons!  Over the years I have determined that from age 5 to 6, something changes.  6 year olds are able to understand basic concepts better than a 5 year old.  6 year olds are also able to sit still a little better.  I will start with students as young as 5 (as long as they are reading), but prefer 6 and up.

My Certifications and Awards

I am an MTNA member.

My Musical Influences

My biggest musical influences have to be my piano teacher growing up, my middle school choral director, my high school choral director, and now my husband.

I would not be the piano player or piano teacher I am today without the teaching and guidance of my piano teacher. I have taken lessons from the same piano teacher for 22 years, and although I no longer take regular lessons I still go to him if I need help with things here or there. I strongly believe you can never stop learning!

My middle school choir director was the first person to really interest me in singing. She was always so supportive and encouraging. I try to bring that into my students' piano lessons.

My high school choir director was and still is a great person. He was always an encouraging teacher, but he always expected you to work hard and give your all. He didn't put up with excuses. I try to instill in my students that being a good piano player is not just going to happen immediately, it is something that you must work at continually. I guess practice really does make perfect.

Jana is an excellent teacher. She is well organized and has lots of patience. I have a son and daughter that took lessons from her and unfortunately we moved and could no longer attend her lessons.
