As I prepared for various international organ competitions this year, I often made a five hour drive to work with Christian Lane.

As the largest private organ studio in the country, students benefit from a robust and vibrant atmosphere.

Sharing common goals but varied perspectives, students range from beginner to advanced and bridge Boston's institutions of higher education.

I never dreamed I would one day love playing the organ as much as I do. I attend graduate school for biology but feel as though I’m getting a conservatory experience in organ at the same time.
— Jennifer Hsiao, Harvard PhD student

With internationally-recognized organist Christian Lane, students benefit from tailored instruction in a supportive and stimulating environment.

Studying with Chris is one of the foremost privileges of my lifelong-learning career, and I have grown tremendously as a musician through his gentle and unfailing expectation. His patience, professionalism, and astonishing ear for detail place him amongst the ranks of the great pedagogues.
