Chris has always encouraged me to do things I initially didn’t think I could do.
Being a professional musician and a beginner organist simultaneously has its challenges, but Christian adeptly crosses that gap through a rigorous attention to detail combined with patience and encouragement.
Chris takes time to really get to know his students and is a joy to be around.
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.

I leave my lessons inspired to focus and improve in my playing and understanding of this great instrument.

Christian Lane uses his knowledge, experience, and technical expertise to serve the music - and not the other way around! I am grateful to call him one of my teachers.
Christian helps me to grow more confident and serious about performance.
I largely credit being able to follow my passion to Chris’ generosity with his effort and time. As a teacher, coach and mentor he has been an endless source of musical influence, inspiration and encouragement every step of the way.
Chris was always flexible and eager to help me work on the skills that would be most useful to me in my job and for my interests.
I was lucky to meet Chris and get private organ lessons with him. I highly recommend him not only for beginners, but also for skilled organists.

Christian has a very contagious passion for making the pipe organ accessible to anyone who shows interest in the vastly complex instrument.

Chris has helped me achieve a heightened musical sensitivity in my playing, an increasingly fluid technique, and an authoritative command of this living and breathing instrument.
