Offering a structured program that is both thorough and progressive, her teaching is always tempered with patience, kindness and good humour. Students from five to eighty-five have enjoyed learning with Janice and a great number of her students have been recipients of scholarships and awards on local, provincial and national levels.

Janice believes that every individual's creative talents should be nurtured and developed as fully as possible. She also believes that people learn best in an enjoyable, respectful and secure setting. These beliefs, combined with her extensive teaching experience and natural enthusiasm, make lessons inspiring and learning rewarding for her students.
