    Mrs. Vincent -- Orchestra, Chorus, Guitar

    in my back yard

    Hi! I'm Mrs. Vincent, and I teach music classes at TMS. I have one husband, six kids (four of them married), and six grandchildren -- five girls and one boy -- and one cat.

    I am a violinist by profession, having worked freelance in recording studios and on the stage (and in orchestra pits) for most of my career. I began my music training as a young child with piano lessons, adding violin at the age of 8. I attended BYU on music scholarship, earning a Bachelor of Music as well as some graduate work. I also learned a little guitar as a young girl and spent this summer improving that skill.

    I have taught violin, viola, and piano lessons since my teen years, and school music for about twenty years. This is my third year in Wasatch District and I love it here!

    Classes

    Orchestras:        Beginning          Intermediate          Advanced (Honors)

    Students of any grade level may register for Beginning; it's never too late to start! If you are interested in violin, viola, cello, or bass, come try it! Students may register for the other two groups based on experience. Orchestra is a full year class, as we build on what we learn each semester.

    Mixed Chorus

    Love to sing? Want to try it? EVERY person has a voice; come find yours with us! Currently we are a mix of all three grade levels, boys and girls, and we explore music of many styles. Chorus is a one-semester class, but you are very welcome to continue with us all year!

    Beginning Guitar:

    This is a one-semester course where we learn the fundamentals of playing the guitar, listening to performers in a variety of styles, and also experimenting with composition and finding our own styles.

    Contact information

    You may write to me at janice.vincent@wasatch.edu, and I promise I will respond as quickly as I am able. (Emailing is one of my "things.")

    Hobbies

    Besides a life-long obsession with music, I have a few other great loves: sewing, crocheting, porcelain -- I am ALL about hands-on creativity! I even draw a little. I also love reading, gardening, hiking, camping, and playing card/board games.
