Tertiary Student Audition
Dr Jan McMillan accompanied the singing component of my 2021 WAAPA audition. It was wonderful to work with someone so talented and so passionate about their art. We were able to workshop my song choices and perfect them together in a very short amount of time. Not mention her piano playing is incredible.
Jan is a delight to work with - she is a wonderful musician whom you can depend on for excellent results.
I consider myself extremely lucky to have found Jan. It is a privilege to study with her. Every lesson is extremely well-structured, challenging and stimulating. She seems to bring a tremendous sense of joy to her teaching. Each lesson is varied, humorous, highly professional, and more than anything enjoyable and satisfying.

Jan is an excellent pianist and a very human individual. As a teacher she has a great personality. Lessons can be both fun and instructive. She was able to explain, demonstrate and inspire me to pursue an interest in piano playing which has been dormant for many decades. Her hallmark is total dedication to her trade.

I have learnt confidence in front of the public, whether it be speaking or performing a piece on the piano. I have also learnt how to read music and memorize things, and learning the french horn, these things were all made easier through my piano experiences.
