She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Temple University. While Janine was a full-time teacher, she put much of the syllabus to music for her students. By doing this, she found that her students test scores rose considerably and their retention of the material increased dramatically. It was then that Janine witnessed first hand, the true power of music.
Writing and music has always been her passion. She has written songs in just about every genre and for the past 40 years has been commissioned to write hundreds of custom songs for individual clients, bands, companies, and corporations.
For 20 years, Janine was the principle composer, curriculum writer and producer for Makin’ Music Rockin’ Rhythms, which is a educational children’s music program. Her music CDs have won numerous national awards.
Janine says, “In my 45 years of writing music I have always believed that Music is “The Universal Language”.
For 17 years, Janine has had the joy of being part of “Young Writers, facilitating songwriting workshops in schools. “Everyone is a songwriter”. It is something that everyone CAN do.
Janine just LOVES HER JOB!!!
