From the age of six, Miss Janna forced anyone and everyone -- mostly her younger brother -- to let her teach them something. Since playing the piano is the thing she knows best, that's what she loves to teach most!
She loves to guide students towards finding their highest potential in both technique and expression at the piano. However, her main goal is for students to enjoy music and be able to serve their communities with their skill for the rest of their lives.
At the Wheaton Yamaha Music School, she spends time with some of the coolest kids in town, "nerding-out" over fantastic piano pieces and intricate workings of the language of music.
