Welcome to Performance Music Lessons Lessons for people of any age.


In a very short time Jana taught me a few incredibly important lessons.  Protecting my voice, breathing correctly while I’m singing, opening up my voice and singing intentionally quickly made a huge impact on the quality of my music. She is a gifted singer and generously shares her gifts and knowledge with her students.Ben Pigorsch
