As a very young girl Laneise used to stand around various leaders at church as they played the piano or organ and just watch in amazement. This led her parents to believe she had an active interest in music and she began playing piano at the young age of 5 years old. Once she entered middle school, she signed up for band and began to play flute at 11 years old. She played flute in band for middle, high school and college. She played flute and piano for solo and ensemble for high school. She also participated in ACT-SO competitions locally and nationally throughout all of high school. Also, she participated at the Central Michigan University Keyboard Festival and Competition, for the piano proficiency test.

She attended Saginaw Valley State University where she received her bachelor’s in International Business, Foreign Languages (Spanish & French) and minor degrees in Music Performance and German Language.

Laneise has various awards and certificates for piano. She participated in two talent shows throughout middle and high school and won 2nd and 3rd places. She won gold and silver medals in the local ACT-SO competition in high school. She has music achievement certificates for winning first place in local and first place in state high school festival in May, 2003. Music Merit Award for piano performance and maintaining a high level of excellence throughout 2000-2001 school years. She earned a Certificate of Level 1 proficiency achievement in piano at state solo and ensemble festival in March, 2003. Also, she earned the Board of Education ‘Accent on Achievement of excellence in piano solo’, superior rating, proficiency 1, MSBOA state solo and ensemble festival April, 2003. Each year that she participated she earned the Certificate of Achievement in performance, instrumental technique, theory, sight reading, and aural awareness from Mid-Michigan Music Teachers Association throughout middle and high school years. There are numerous certificates for participation in recitals.

In high school and after graduation, she performed mini concert sessions for various churches, playing flute and/or piano. She enjoyed playing for weddings and playing for Christmas concerts every year. The highlight of her musical career this far has included owning a successful piano studio for over 6 years in her home of Michigan before moving to Georgia. She has enjoyed seeing the results of former student’s blossom into great musical performers. She has a history of excellent music teachers however; the most influential music teacher would be Mary Ellen Bartlett whom she began to study under around high school years. ‘She encouraged me and helped me to tell a story with the music I played. She was very patient and kind and she went above her call of duty as a teacher’. She even helped Laneise venture off into starting her own piano studio. Her teaching helped explode an already burning passion for music inside of Laneise. This is why Laneise understands the importance of a good music teacher.

When you study under great music teachers, it develops your talent in such a way that you could not originally imagine. Knowing this, and also having a passion for sharing her talent and wanting to help others develop their music talent, is the driving force for Laneise to teach students.

Laneise's Philosophy is that music changes lives! It is not just a form of art but rather a way of life. Music can heal, restore, and touch the depths of our souls.

Laneise is very patient, encouraging, and tailors to the needs of each student to ensure they are getting the most out of their talent for music. She has experience with working with students as young as 4 years of age to 65 years of age. She teaches students to play from within which always produces magic outwardly.
