Piano plus More
Piano Plus More is a consortium of music teachers providing quality music lessons to students of all ages in Palm Desert, CA and nearby cities.
Janice is the director and instructor at Piano Plus More. Janice started learning piano at age four and was classically trained growing up. While starting off with a classical music background, over time Janice began exploring different genres which has enabled her to begin creating a unique style that is her own. Despite her childhood dream of becoming a concert pianist, Janice wanted to expand her knowledge in different fields of studies and ended up getting non-music degrees; however, various opportunities of learning different styles of music, teaching music to students of all ages and levels, being a part of music education research, writing and producing music, and performing music in different settings never ceased and she has been an active musician and educator for over 20 years.
Combining her teaching expertise with her experience of working with many different musicians from all walks of life, Janice also finds fulfillment in connecting her students/clients with other fellow music instructors who can teach different styles, genres, and instruments.

Janice believes that gaining performance experience is vital to grow as a musician and holds Student Recitals in Palm Desert twice a year. Recitals provide a great opportunity for students to get comfortable with playing for an audience and it is Janice's greatest joy to see her students gain confidence through that experience.
“The Jungle Book” is an original album created by Janice for the kids stage show at a water park located in Phuket, Thailand. The music and themes are inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s 1894 “The Jungle Book” while having an original flair and a style that is molded by Janice. The songs, based in strong themes of family, trust, and love were crafted to appeal to people of all ages and all backgrounds. Being performed where English is, primarily, a second language, Janice carefully crafted the music using complex themes and simplistic language to help reach the broadest audience possible.
