Jane K.

Cello, Piano

Jane K.Jane first began studying piano at the age of 4 under USC graduate Kim SunYoung and excelled at an early age winning numerous awards in the Bach Festival, Southwest Music Festival and String Teachers Association Award.

She then began studying cello at the age of 7 – her love of this instrument caused her to favor it in her studies and she was soon participating in symphonies and orchestras such as the Southwest Youth Symphony, the Colburn Chamber Orchestra, the Colburn Da Camera Orchestra and a chamber group.  Eventually Jane moved onto UCLA to obtain a Music Education degree with a specialization in cello. And true to her love of music she was involved in UCLA's Philharmonic Orchestra and studied under LA Philharmonic's cellist Barry Gold while at UCLA.  Her performances included her church's worship band and performances to support the local community by performing at convalescent homes.

Jane has been teaching for over 10 years and enjoys seeing her students develop and grow as musicians and individuals.  She believes that a trusting and healthy relationship between student and teacher results in the best growth for her students.  To her, music teaching is not just a job but is a crusade and a connection from the heart and about building relationships and it is a joy for Jane to do just that.

She believes that music enhances people's lives and hopes to see all her students enjoy their abilities and bless others with it. Jane is comfortable teaching students of all ages from 4 through adult and welcomes new students of all levels.
