Elm Program

Jane started the recorder at age seven with early music specialist Arnold Grayson in Miami, Florida. She plays oboe and English horn, studied with Bill Bennett and Jonathan Fischer, played principal oboe with the American Philharmonic/Sonoma, and has been a soloist with the Mill Valley Philharmonic and College of Marin Orchestra.  With a Ph.D. in urban policy and planning from the University of California, Berkeley, Dr. Kramer has worked as a researcher at the University of California, San Francisco, and as a consultant for public sector and non-profit organizations with a focus on vulnerable adolescents. After being awarded a grant to pursue a passion from an anonymous donor at Vassar College, Jane returned to her musical roots to fulfill a dream of replicating the vision of the Fine Arts Music Conservatory of Miami, which she attended as a child. She is the recipient of the 2016 Marin County Humanitarian Award, recognition of the social justice mission of ELM.
