Hope you're keeping well and safe Janice. I'm sure on-line is the way to go just now. I had a 20 minute session with Richard Ingham on Thursday, and it worked fine, though the sound is all it might be. All the best to you Tim
Great Adults Performance Evening tonight! Everyone played so well 👏💙🎶 Lovely to have a wee surprise guest in Janice Toner Music Tuition turning up to play as well 😘
Pics will go up over the next few days, along with a poll for our next theme!
Freeeeee piano! Nothing to do with me, just sharing!

Piano and Singing tuition for all ages and stages, for abrsm exams, for extra school help, and always for fun. Email or message for more info.

Operating as usual


We’re opening again on Monday! Rebecca, Zoe and myself are desperate to see you all again!

Lessons with Janice are online only this week, due to self isolation…what a way to start the new year, but things can only get better, and they really will…

There are still several news spaces empty for piano lessons, so if you’re not one of our beloved students then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be - hit me with a message, we’ll get started.

Opportunities to sit abrsm exams, recitals, composition and song writing workshops from guest tutors, and a frighteningly talented guitar tutor soon to join the team (watch this space!), we’re a little bit more than the average weekly lessons, and we know how to have fun as we do it!
And when better than now to jump aboard?
Let’s do it!


I’ve just messaged her to let her know that we’re open for business 🤣

This is the Candy cart at mackinnon mills - the wee carnival that I shamelessly plugged at our concert. Absolutely recommended for a fun afternoon.
For those of you with kids with sensory sensitivities, they also have some autism friendly sessions, which is such a good thing!
Go have a wee look! X


I’m not overly keen on piano stickers, if it’s a situation that calls for them fair play, but if not, for the love of all that is holy…
I mean, I’ve had enough mental health issues this year 🤣



Not here, you understand… 🤣
Our prices are consistently low!

But why not think about putting the money you’ve saved this Black Friday into music lessons for yourself, or for your loved ones!

What a few weeks!

Exam results are in for two of our pupils, certificates arrived this morning! Excellent results, and I’m just so delighted for everyone!

Rebecca has fitted so well into the music school, and, despite working more hours than I realised were in a day, has put in so much hard graft teaching new pupils ❤️
Rebecca and I are excited to welcome Zoe into the team… Zoe is an extremely accomplished pianist studying at the Conservatoire, and is now available to take on pupils! ❤️

For longer standing pupils, a Christmas Concert is being organised, details to come, but it looks like it may be the 5th of December. This was absolutely the brainchild of our Tuesday night beginner theory class, who ganged up on me and told me to get one organised. Thanks, you lot 😆

Beginner theory class has spaces in, still. They’re a great crowd, and there’s never a dull moment! If you feel your child may benefit from an exciting social class that explores how music works, just let me know! 🎶

As you might know, our music school is becoming well known for our welcoming attitude towards neurodiverse students. As a new member of the Complementary Medical Association, I hope to bring music groups and classes to people who may not benefit from our traditional lessons. Fingers crossed things will begin to roll from early next year!

So many plates spinning, and so much noisy fun! Just send me a message to hear more, come and join in!

Delighted to have now qualified to be a full member of the Complementary Medical Association.
Under their umbrella, I’ll be able to run sessions using music as a transformative healing and communicative medium, and have already begun to source organisation support for this new adventure.
Bear with me as this new venture begins…


In honour of the two tutors that have joined the teaching team, I’m delighted to announce that Janice Toner Music Tuition has evolved ever so slightly.
I’m delighted to rebrand as Janice Toner Music School, to highlight that it isn’t only me doing the work!
More fun new things and amazing news to follow, please do watch this space!


Can’t get over how supportive my pupils families are! It’s not often I need to juggle things around for my own family’s sake, but when I do I’m always delighted that everyone tries to be as flexible for me as I try to be with them…
I’m very lucky to have such a caring music family!
Thank you all so much - and always remember that if any of you need a change of time or day, just say!

I’m so proud of my theory class! After completing the grade 1 theory workbooks, we had a class exam yesterday, and I’m so excited to mark them just now 🥰

They work so hard, and we have such fun…the class has been such a comfort, especially during lockdown, where it served as a fun social class where we didn’t just gain knowledge, we all gained friends.

Here’s to beginning grade 2! 🥂

What a week!

Absolutely delighted to be back teaching the troops at the Stephen Gaughan Sopa, it’s been like coming home!

I’m also more than delighted to be bringing new piano tutor 🌟 Hamill🌟 into the fold. After many years of failing to be in two places at once, it finally occurred to me that I just needed to bring someone else in.
Rebecca is fabulous, enthusiastic and knowledgable, and more than ready to begin teaching her first lessons this week coming.
Genuinely don’t know which of us is more excited.

My own timetable is tight, but there’s one or two little spots that might suit you, and if not, we do have a waiting list running. Join the list for first dibs at any spaces that do appear -those on the waiting list will always get first refusal, so you know it makes sense.

In less exciting news, I’m still watching Covid numbers rise, but still clinging to hope that I may be able to open my studio back up to in person lessons. I’ll be taking professional advice on that over the next couple of weeks, and doing the appropriate risk assessments.
I shall keep you all posted! Fingers crossed 🤞


Well hi!

Week two of school term, and I am exhausted! Am I stopping? No! Do I have the option of stopping? Also no! 🤣

Everything is getting back on track, and this week I’m concentrating on sorting out my studio so I can get everyone back here.
Also this week - back to teaching singing at Stephen Gaughan Sopa !
I can’t wait, I’ve missed everyone very much!

I’ve room on my partner in crime ’s timetable for two beginner pianists. This is THE perfect time to get you or your child started, as term begins and new routines are instilled! Give me a wee message here or email [email protected] and we’ll sort some stuff out!


Here we go again! Summer timetable is just about to be dropped for the regular timetable… where did summer go? Seriously? So lots of changes as we go back to whatever normal is this time…

So for present pupils, same times and days as before, unless we’ve arranged something different! If you find that the new term is bringing new challenges and commitments, just give me a shout, I’m certain we can sort s as time slot that works! I know it’ll be trickier as all those clubs will be opening back up, so everything will be tighter, but where there’s a will…!

Beginner theory class is changing time, and is potentially going to be 7pm on a Tuesday. Confirmation will be given as soon as! There are still spaces in this wee group, I’ve loved that this class is backing up all my practical teaching, and bringing together the kids. It has been so important to us during lockdown when we all felt a bit disconnected, and real friendships have been formed. It’s been glorious!

Josie and the song writing workshops were a great success as well, we had a wee zoom concert at the end, and the pupils involved - yes, even the ones who didn’t perform - did so amazingly! The imaginations they displayed…blown away by it all!
Keep an ear to the ground for more guest led song writing classes, and for a composition class!

You can blame the beginner theory class for this next bit. They have banded together and asked for an online Christmas concert this year. I know who calls the shots in that group really, so I guess we’re having a concert! Whether it is zoom or not depends again on numbers, but a concert there shall be! (Even if it is face to face, I’ll have it zoomed too, so everyone can make it)

Face to face lessons should begin in September (I’m a little nervous about the numbers with the kids going back), and it’ll be ideally a staggered return - one week zoom, next week face to face. And the option of zoom will always be there - car in for an mot? Have a zoom lesson that week. Are you a lockdown start pupil who lives on Stirling? Just stay on zoom, if that works best for you.

And the last little piece of news is also a request… with my intentions to develop teaching classes of composition and theory etc, and the guest workshops, and my own projects playing, writing and composing, it means I have less space in my timetable for new pupils… can I teach lessons and classes at once? Not really, but here’s my solution! I have asked a former pupil to come and teach young beginners for me. Details again to follow! She’s fab, and I’m very excited!

And here’s the request - due to this sudden expansion of classes, creativity and colleagues, I’d love to bring some new pupils into the fold!
Please help out by sharing this, by remembering me when anyone asks for a teacher, or (and I’d LOVE this) to leave a review (be kind!🤣)

I’m always available on here (though it’s a little glitchy) or at [email protected]
