My name is Kyle Lanier and I am passionate about helping students succeed in music! I have been teaching for 20 years and have experience in all levels K-12, was a band director for 14 years and now teach elementary music in an International Baccalaureate school. I received my Bachelor of Music degree from East Carolina University in Greenville, NC and a Master of Arts in Human Services Administration from Southeastern University in Lakeland, FL. I am comfortable tutoring students in all types of music subjects from theory to history and even can help with instrument or voice lessons as needed. While I love all types of music, I truly love teaching trumpet lessons because I am a professional trumpet player and perform with the local symphony in my community, and freelance as needed. My teaching philosophy is that of an encourager and facilitator in student learning. I approach learning as a coach, coming alongside the student to assist them as needed, but ultimately to cheer them on in their pursuit of knowledge. In addition to my love for music, I'm also a technology geek and love exploring various types of technology.
