"Janice gave me so many wonderful new tips that I could immediately incorporate into my teaching. She packed in so many useful comments about violin technique and inspiring anecdotes -- the time flew by! I left completely re-invigorated and eager to use her suggestions in my teaching."
~ Jane Rosenof (teacher)

"As someone who does not play the violin herself, I took this course with a view to learning how to help my young children practice the violin. It was a wonderful experience. I learned an enormous amount about the instrument, violin pedagogy and how to get kids to progress successfully and practice consistently. I am far more effective at helping my children with their practice as a result of this course."
~ Dr. Linda Rabieh, Tufts University & MIT Lecturer (parent)

"Janice's class was a great supplement to my Suzuki training. Janice is an excellent teacher; she presents material clearly, is extremely patient and supportive, and values her students' input."
~ Chris Mandell (teacher)

"After participating in Janice's ABC's of String Teaching course, I have a whole new toolbox of techniques to draw from when teaching my students. Her class was well thought out, enjoyable and extremely beneficial to me as a teacher. I highly recommend it to anyone working with beginning violin students!"
~ Emily Moore (teacher)
