...has played flute almost all of her life. She starting at 8 years of age and continued playing through college and into her early 30’s.She has played in bands and orchestras, has written music and theater pieces, and toured throughout the West Coast and Europe. After many years of music as the core of her life, she began teaching Kindergarten using the Montessori method. Jan taught for 25 years and now returns to music, her first love. She has taken the Suzuki training and is excited to use the method, as it is very much like the Montessori method that served her so well as an Elementary school teacher.
