About Music Instructor Justin Janer

Justin's greatest passion is instilling a love for music in others!  After spending seven years working as a classroom music teacher in Southern California, he began teaching independently and exclusively as a private instructor.  This format allows each student to reach their fullest potential while gaining a wealth of knowledge on a individual basis


Justin recently moved to Northern California to work as the classroom general music teacher, choir director, and band director at Pinewood School in Los Altos.  He is now proud to offer private music lessons to students in Mountain House, CA.


Justin is also the Praise Team Leader at Hosanna Community Korean Church in San Ramon.
