As an advocate of innovative methods of education, Shane Anderson, DMA, was one of the first music educators to create and teach Class Piano fully online. Through a Louisiana Board of Regents Grant and private donations totaling nearly $100,000, in 2016 he designed and installed a 24 station Roland piano lab for Nicholls State University. He has also served as pianist for many years with the Victoria Symphony and Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestras.
His interest in new music has led him to perform and present classes on contemporary piano music in Jakarta, Bandung and Bali, Indonesia, on behalf of the Yamaha Corporation. Shane has been featured as a collaborative artist in hundreds of performances throughout Texas and Louisiana. He most recently served as head of the Department of Music at Nicholls State University and Associate professor of music at Texas A&M University in both Corpus Christi and Kingsville. His degrees are from the Eastman School of Music as a student of Nelita True and The University of Texas at Austin with Nancy Garrett. Shane teaches private and class piano for the Music Department at ACC.
