Brad Hanes is a jazz piano student of West Music Conservatory instructor Mike Campbell. He has been studying with him for about 3 years. He has thoroughly enjoyed taking lessons from Mike and feels he has gained a much better understanding of music theory. He has played at his church and the Western Home while in lessons and has a goal to play piano improvisation and jazz like Mike someday. Besides music, Brad enjoys playing sports. He enjoys baseball, tennis, softball, and long distance swimming. Since he lives on a lake, he has previously had ducks as pets! He enjoys classical music by composers such as Frédéric Chopin and Alexander Scriabin. Musical talent must run in his family as two of his children have played in the Waterloo Cedar Falls Symphony!
Congratulations on your achievements, Brad!
