Janice Garnett Augustus (b. 1945) is a native of Cleveland, Ohio. Beginning at an early age, she studied piano extensively under the tutelage of Rose Widder (protege of Leopold Godowsky, Russian pianist and composer) and violin with Gino Antal (of the Cleveland Orchestra). She majored in violin at Howard University in Washington, D.C. In addition to violin and piano, she is well-versed in many other instruments. She has played violin in numerous orchestras, and flute and piccolo in several bands.

Janice currently lives in Southern California with her husband, writer Michael G. Augustus. She is the mother of five children and grandmother of ten. She recently retired after twenty years as a teacher for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. She also served for twenty-six years as organist and director of two choirs for English and Bilingual Masses, for which she used much original music. All of Janice's music is dedicated first and foremost to God and to her late mother, Willistine Garnett.

Janice is a member of the Center for the Promotion of Contemporary Composers (CPCC), the American Composers Forum (ACF), the Society of Composers, Incorporated (SCI), the International Alliance for Women in Music (IAWM), and the National Association of Composers, USA (NACUSA), and ASCAP.
