Rob Laney directs, teaches, and blogs about every kind of music. As Music Department Chair at Weatherford College he guides students to a richer musical future. As Director of Music at South Hills Christian Church he points the way to higher and deeper relationships through music. Rob is a son and grandson of teachers and a choral musician since the day his Sunday school teacher asked him to lead the other children in "Happy Birthday." Because music lessons are life lessons, Rob encourages his choirs and students to listen more closely to the music around them and to each other. Because learning more about music one can understand more about their place in the world, Rob’s motto for the value of music education is "Be Hear Know." A Dallas native, Fort Worth resident and Texas Christian University alumnus, Rob spends the rests in his musical life with his beautiful wife and son.
