From folk to classical, jazz to country swing, Jan divides her time playing and performing solo and as a frequent collaborator with other musicians. Jan is a sought after guest with choral groups, bands, dramatic productions, and in-studio work.
"I can't recall ever having a time in my life where music wasn't really important to me."
Jan began studying accordion at age 5, adding piano to her studies at age 7, but was encouraged to focus solely on piano full time at 13. Rebirthing the accordion several decades later, Jan hasn't looked back. "I pulled that gorgeous vintage beauty out of its velvet case, and in short order I was playing in a Klezmer country swing band."
