A member of the American String Teachers Association, Miss Jancova is always looking for ways to improve her teaching skills to help her students succeed.
Teaching Philosophy: I believe the most important job of a music teacher is to discover and cultivate what motivates each individual student to learn, and what allows him or her to succeed. It is my goal to help my students find their unique musical voice, to develop proper technique on their instruments, to hone personal skills such as responsibility and self-motivation, and to foster a general love of music and music-making in their lives. I strive to make lessons and practice fun for my students and to instill in them the importance of using their bodies in a healthy and ergonomic manner. I pride myself on utilizing creative, out-of-the-box thinking to help students overcome musical and technical challenges in unique and interesting ways.
