Jane Bastien

Jane BastienGrowing up as the daughter of piano teacher Gladys Smisor, Jane began her childhood lessons with Leota Anderson in Hutchinson, Kansas. After graduating from Barnard College of Columbia University, she continued her studies with Isabelle Vengerova in New York, and received a Master of Arts degree from Teachers College, Columbia University. Jane Smisor Bastien was formerly a pedagogy professor and director of the Preparatory Department of Music at Tulane University, where she had an opportunity to extensively research current methodology in developing the Bastien teaching materials for children.

Because she still teaches a large number of students in her home in La Jolla (San Diego), Jane's composing continues to be directly related to her own students' experiences. She knows what appeals to contemporary children and writes music that they will find fun to play. In recognition of their significant contribution to music and music education, Jane and her husband James Bastien were presented with the 1999 MTNA Lifetime Achievement Award.

Jane's daughter, Lori, has recently begun a blog which can be found at www.bastienpiano.blogs.com. This site gives the reader an inside look into a private piano studio.

Jane Bastien: A Passion for Teaching is a momentous film that offers a rare, close-up glimpse into Jane’s private studio, featuring candid footage of lessons, performances, and personal interactions. Interviews with family members, current and former students, and parents add insight into the unique experience of studying under this master teacher. Jane’s warmth and devotion are apparent as is her consummate knowledge and expertise. Please see below to download or view Jane Bastien: A Passion for Teaching.
