I am delighted to be welcoming as my guest this week Lori Lane, a homeschool veteran of 20 years and a Mum after my own heart! Lori and her husband John have four sons ranging in age from 16 to 29. Their three oldest sons, John Michael, Jeremy, and Jordan are all homeschool graduates.
Lori has a degree in Piano Performance and has won competitions, spoken at the National Music Teacher’s Convention and served on the panel for two National KTV Video conferences for private music educators across the country.
Lori is former director of Southside Private Musicians and Lane Music Development Centers in Greenville, SC, she has directed and produced many children’s choirs and stage productions including Fiddler on the Roof Jr., and Music Man Jr, The Diary of Anne Frank, Fabulous Fable Factory, Our Town, and My Fair Lady.
In the fall of 2000, Lori began the Artios Academy for the Visual and Performing Arts as an advanced level arts program for high school students. That program has now grown to include Artios Academy of Arts and History, Artios Preparatory, and Artios Conservatory.
In 2011, the Artios Academies of Littleton opened under Lori’s leadership. Lori now serves as Executive Director of Artios Academies overseeing and consulting with Artios Academy locations around the country. Find out how you can start your own.
Lori, her husband, John, and youngest son reside in Colorado where Lori enjoys horseback riding, hiking, and skiing. That is, when she takes a minute away from developing courses, designing curriculum, speaking and writing for various websites and publications, as well as directing productions of the local community theater. I told you was a woman after my own heart!
Oh…and of course homeschooling Jared, her last of four. Bring a lovely cup of tea and join me on Friday at 12 noon CT to find out more about this busy woman and her Artios Academies.
