I decided to take piano lessons when I retired as being able to play for my own enjoyment has been a life-long dream. I feel very fortunate to have such a talented, encouraging, enthusiastic instructor and through him I have gained a greater appreciation and love of music. Jan ensures a supportive, positive, and fun learning experience for his students of all ages, going above and beyond what one would expect from their piano instructor.Karen Wilcock
I have been a student of Jan Janovsky for 6 years, and without the guidance, support and first-class tuition from Classic Studios I would not be the musician I am today. His ability to be a role model, mentor and giving all students the upmost respect has given many of his students the will to pursue music further, whether you want to play piano casually or as a possible career choice. On his part he gives 100% and expects the same for his students, which is shown by him doing 1-1 tutoring once a week and having free ‘Master classes’ every month – where he brings all of his students together as one large class. The atmosphere is a lot more fun yet professional simultaneously, which in my opinion made classes here an amazing experience.

These are classes you would love to have your child attend to.Ben Collins

Jan Janovsky was one of the teachers at the Edmonton workshop. He proved to be mad keen on duets and a very good musician and teacher, by all accounts.Christopher Norton (International Composer & Educator)
Jan is an INCREDIBLY GIFTED pianist that has a crazy passion for instilling his love of music into his students! The patience Jan has is SO remarkable! He really believes in his students and works with each unique personality at their level. We have two very different sons taking lessons – his way of inspiring both is entirely suited to the way encouragement would work for each personality. Jan has a wit about him that is infectious! In his kind way, he is still firm when it’s needed and our guys respond well. Our younger son has said twice now… “Mom, if I don’t play piano next year, can I at least go visit Jan!!!” 🙂 Our guys really love Jan! BEST PIANO TEACHER EVER!!Judie Swinton
Classic studios has been amazing for our child. She has progressed greatly and has been provided with many opportunities throughout the years. She started as a beginner and in the last 3 years has now improved to platinum status at SP Music Festival under Jan’s teaching. She is now a more confident piano player thanks to Jan.Cheryl Sinclair
Jan is a fantastic teacher! He always makes you feel like you are his only student. He doesn’t just teach music, he teaches a love for music. He has a way of making it fun and enjoyable. Even if Charlotte is having a bad day, she always comes away from her lesson very happy and positive. He really understands her and is helping her grow, not only as a musician, but as a person as well. She has learned so much from Jan and has had so many great experiences. I can’t say enough great things about Jan Janovsky and Classic Studios!Charlotte McNeely
My daughter is a busy high school student. She has a job, lots of school work, and a crazy social life. Yet she loves coming to Jan’s lessons once a week, never complains, and always, always comes out of them happy and sharing great stories. His positive energy and casual, fun, and eclectic personality has kept her interest in music far longer than I would have imagined. We appreciate Jan for more than just his piano expertise (which is pretty amazing I might add!), but also for being a highly regarded role model in her life! Thanks Jan!Karen Quinlan
Jan has done an amazing job with all four of my kids and their different learning styles. He is talented and enthusiastic. He truly cares about his students and their learning. The Masterclasses he offers go above and beyond. I would recommend Jan to anyone who is looking to learn piano and develop a love for music.Kristy Young
Jan has inspired me to pursue music as a career. He has brought me from my early stages as a musician, and trained my ear and mind to help me play the music I want to. I am now currently attending the U of A in piano, thanks to Classic Studios.Justin Powley
Our kids have been taking piano lessons with Jan for over a year. Every week they are excited to go to lessons and learn something new. He makes every lesson fun and encourages the kids to write down five songs every week for their lesson and they get an opportunity to learn how to play some of their favorite songs. They love being able to play them for their friends and family. Jan is such an incredible pianist but his interactions with the kids are what sets him apart.Michelle Brady
Jan’s unique teaching method creates an environment for children and adults that is fun and that improves their musical talents.Kurt Stenner
When a music teacher is able to teach three of your sons the art of playing the piano and to love music, you must be doing something right. Jan has been a weekly part of our family routine for about 10 years. He always makes the lessons engaging and entertaining, even when it comes to theory. Jan is very talented and willing to go the extra mile to keep his students and their families happy. With lots of opportunities to perform in the community throughout the year, there is no better choice than enrolling in Classic Studios.Jackie Mulder
My kids starting taking lessons from Classic Studios and it inspired me to do it as well. I am a 37 year old man and have never taken a music lesson or played a musical instrument in my life. Jan brought me in and had me playing and enjoying piano way quicker than I could have imagined. It’s really cool enjoying the same activity as my kids. For anyone who has been tempted to learn to play, this is the spot for you.Tyler Brady
Classic Studios provides an excellent guide to achieve the type of musical success you choose. Success could be being able to play long winded highly technical piano pieces, having a deeper base of music to feel comfortable improvising in jazz, or having the skills to create your own music. It’s all about providing a path to get you there.Garyn Parish
