Janine is an enthusiastic presenter specialising in corporate and community music programs across the lifespan. She believes that everyone should have the opportunity to make music to feel great, regardless of age or ability.
She is classically trained on the flute and piano with a Bachelor of Music (Honours) in Music Therapy from the University of Melbourne. She has over 30 years experience in music performance, education and therapy.
