Jane Weaver

Jane’s extensive teaching experience ranges from the very young to the mature adult, and includes starting the Group/Private piano program at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey, and as a faculty member at Princeton University. She credits her mentor, Frances Clark, for putting her on the map as a teacher. And after graduating from the Piano Pedagogy program at the New School for Music Study, she was retained to teach pedagogy as well as individual students.

When her daughters began Suzuki violin lessons at an early age, Jane dug out her own violin and studied Suzuki pedagogy.

Jane enjoys and has done tons of accompanying and chamber music. She participates in the Cello Choir of Asheville, and fiddles for the Reel Magnolias Contradance Band. At Christmas-time she plays carols on the harp. A generalist at heart, she also gardens, reforests, gives seminars on geometry as a sacred subject, drafting in the Pythagorean style, and the geometry of music. In 2005 a dozen of her circular quilts were exhibited in a one-woman show at Bellows Art Gallery at UNCA.

Jane feels that the study of music is essential for everyone, primarily as a means to dive right in and uncover his or her potential, and that it is a unique contemporary opportunity to explore and develop self-discipline. Throw in some deeply satisfying music-making, and you have an experience no one should pass by.
