My name is Jan VanKooten. With my husband Gerry, I live in Sterling, Alaska, most of the year. Since we are recently retired, we are exploring what comes next in life.

I am first and foremost a music educator, something through which I love to engage folks of all ages.  A pertinent goal has been to raise awareness of music-making as avocation, as delight, as recreation, as meditation, and as a calling.

I also love to write — litanies, letters, descriptions, reviews — and desire to practice that craft more seriously and more frequently.
