“killer technique and inspired musicality”
— Drum Magazine

Born in England and raised in Scotland, Jane completed her BA and MA in Music at the University of York (UK), and her Doctorate in Percussion Performance at the University of Illinois.  Drum Magazine has called out Jane’s “killer technique and inspired musicality,” while Virago Magazine notes, “she is pure fire!”

Jane served as a Project Manager for the MCO during it’s 2017-2018 season! She ran the behind-the-scenes of the orchestra’s marketing and stage production.  The orchestra looks forward to playing with Jane!
