My passion is teaching music as a language that you will come to understand. I don't only teach notes on a page, but an understand of music theory (the building blocks of music). If you want to know not just how to play, but also create music, send me a message! I learned to play piano by ear, and then studied classical repertoire as well. I have 10 years experience in gospel music, and 2 years gigging in a country band. I have taught piano lessons for 6 years, and have had a variety of students from different backgrounds along the way. My goal is to teach a variety of styles and tailor lessons to your unique musical taste! Everyone's musical journey is different, and so each lesson is personalized to your needs.

About Lane H.

I am a professional keyboard player for a country cover band, and I also play regularly in churches. I learned to play piano by ear, and have a rich background in gospel music. Over the years, I have been privileged to learn from and play with talented musicians in many environments, including churches, studios, and college ensembles, as well as gigging regularly with the band every weekend in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama. I play piano, Hammond organ, and keyboard instruments of many different genres including Rhodes, Clavinet, and synthesizers.

I have always had a very open mind concerning music, and this has allowed me to explore a variety of styles, including jazz, gospel, country, funk, reggae, and classical. I have attended East Central Community College in Decatur, MS for the past four semesters studying classical piano, and have ambitions to study jazz at a university in the fall.

I have always felt that understanding music theory is the best foundation to learning music. If you understand how music works, you can not only play what the greats before us have, but you can use those skills to create new music. In the last few years I have also gained an appreciation for classical repertoire, and how the popular music of today evolved from it.

If you are looking for someone that can push you, make you believe in yourself and abilities, and just simply fall in love with music even more, Lane is the teacher for you. The dedication and love for music is extremely evident in Lanes teachings. I honestly believe that there isn’t anything he can’t perform or teach you to do. The talent is definitely there. Do yourself a favor and don’t miss out on this opportunity. It will be well worth it!

I wanted to learn piano for a while, but couldn’t find the motivation. After just a few lessons with Lane, I was hooked! He explains everything so well. The lessons are fun and informative. He has something to offer for both beginning AND experienced piano players. Thank you, Lane!
