Hanson Music Studios(HMS) is the Father/Son team of Wally & Chris Hanson. Wally started teaching private guitar lessons in Las Vegas in 2002 and Chris joined the company in 2005 teaching piano lessons & voice lessons. Wally sub-taught in Las Vegas for the music teachers and holds his Bachelor of Music Degree from Northern Illinois University. Chris studied music at Peninsula College in Port Angeles, WA and studied privately for several years with Cynthia Harris, Premier piano teacher in Las Vegas, NV.
We are strong believers that everyone should be able to have a life of music. That's why we became teachers. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced student needing guidance, let's explore music together! As well as teaching music, Chris and Wally also play in a band where they write, arrange, perform, and record/produce their own original music.
We offer both in person and online private piano lessons & guitar lessons, as well as voice, bass & trumpet lessons. The Hansons have developed a system of teaching the fundamentals of music that is very unique. After working the systems for a period of time, students can easily learn new songs on their own, and also learn to improvise and write and produce their own music. Chris and Wally also use high tech studio equipment for recording student’s progress. They enjoy longevity in student retention, and have current students that have been with them 11 to 12 years.
