She does however also have a long list of songs that she can cover and regularly compose / custom music to a client’s specific needs.
"Thank you so much for making our dream wedding so special with your beautiful music! There are really no words to express the emotions I felt when I heard you play Ave Maria for my walk down the aisle, it is something I will always remember and cherish. Wedding planning is one of the most stressful times in a brides life and having a professional, enthusiastic and attentive service provider such as yourself is an absolute pleasure. The piece de resistance of course was the wonderful feedback from our guests, who described your playing as ethereal and heavenly. So thank you once again, I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking to add a personal and special touch to their wedding day or special occasion." - Stephanie and Richard
"Troues oor die algemeen is stresvol so wanneer iemand oor jou pad kom wat hierdie proses ‘n klein bietjie makliker maak word dit opreg waardeer, en so was dit met Jana. Vriendelik, warm en toeganklik is die eerste woorde wat in my kop spring. Wat ‘n plesier was dit nie om haar deel van ons groot dag te kon he nie! Die gaste kon nie ophou praat oor die pragtige harp en harpis nie! Dit was absoluut die perfekte bydrae tot ons perfekte dag. Baie opregte dankies, Jana. Jy is ‘n superster." - Alecia en Andries.
"Thank you so much for the amazing Harp Playing at our Wedding. Everyone commented on your wonderful talent and it really made the wedding extra special! Thank you so much!" - Dr Kim Booysen
"We simply had to have a harpist at our wedding, not just any harpist but the best we could find! We wanted to represent our Irish roots and tie in with our Celtic wedding and guests - enter Jana. What Jana gave to us was special, it turned that humble little chapel into a memory for many. The music was left up to Jana and was just perfect, adding that something specially different. We had a Ceili Mor (HUGE Irish party) that evening with Irish dancers and band, but the most talked about was “the wonderful harpist” at the chapel! Thank you for making our day very special Jana." - Cathy & Derek
"A huge thanks to you and your husband on the classical guitar for the amazing atmosphere u created. It was beautiful!" - Monique and Nathan -

We enjoyed listening to you from the manor house while we were getting ready, it was absolutely AMAZING! and I definitely started crying when you switched to the wedding march… Your music is so beautiful and added such a touch of elegance to our special day! You were lovely to work with and I hope we can have you play for us again some day!" - The Buckleys
