Janice believes that gaining performance experience is vital to grow as a musician and holds Student Recitals in Palm Desert a few times 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.
