Hi, my name is Janna. I grew up in Southern California and played in orchestra through middle and high school. I now live in Mississippi. I am well into my adult years and married with four school age children. I have kept up with the violin by playing mostly at church, but only 2 or 3 times a year, and also by teaching beginner lessons to a few students. I still have all my old violin books and pieces from when I had private lessons in high school and I cannot competently play the harder stuff. I plan to use these lessons to help me get back to that and hopefully improve beyond that. I never really mastered vibrato so that’s my first goal. I’m also trying to encourage my children to take up an instrument, whether stringed or not.
