She majored in violin at Howard University in Washington, D.C. and has played violin in numerous orchestras as well as flute and piccolo in several bands.
Janice now resides in Southern California. She retired in 1996 after twenty years as a teacher for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and twenty-six years as organist and director of two choirs for English and Bilingual Masses for which she used much original music. Now able to devote almost full time to composing, she has recently completed several compositions, mostly for violin and piano.
