Jane started music lessons at the age of five, beginning with piano lessons with Portland piano virtuoso Kelli Brown Stephens and later adding harp instruction with the late Marion Fouse. In high school she spent a year in Hamburg, Germany where she studied harp with Gesina Dreyer (also an instructor at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin), and attended classical concerts and master classes in Europe, including private lessons given by Xavier de Maistre, Principial Harpist of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.
In piano, Jane completed the Oregon Music Teachers Association Syllabus curriculum with the highest-level “Superior” marks at the age of fifteen. A year later, she was accepted to join the Portland Youth Philharmonic as a harpist and performed at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in downtown Portland under the batons of David Hattner and Oregon Symphony Orchestra conductor Carlos Kalmar.
Jane matriculated at Portland State University in Applied Linguistics in 2012. Apart from attending school, she is a signed fashion model, gamer and pipe organist. She is now pleased to be sharing her love of classical music with students in the Portland area. Jane teaches piano.
