As a child, I studied guitar and drums privately. I began a professional career at 14 and played and taught through college. I spent several years out west and began my original songwriting career there. Since returning to Dayton, I have formed original songwriting and jazz groups over the years. I have been teaching for the past 20 years and continue to create, record, form groups and play solo guitar performances..

"My son has been in lessons with Janet for a few sessions and I can already see him grasping the concepts of music and the strumming of his strings is so much better. He LOVES going to lessons and always is smiling during them. I can not say enough wonderful things about Janet. She has truly been an amazing instructor for my son. She is so happy to see him and very informative. " Lacy Brandt wrote at Wednesday, Jun. 21st 2017
