LaWayne Leno was born and raised in rural North Dakota where he studied piano with Belle Mehus and her sister, Alma Mehus-Studness, both students of Adele aus der Ohe. He continued his piano studies with Oxana Yablonskaya of the Juillliard School, and completed his education at the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota. He became a certified public accountant and, after a twenty-year career in computer consulting, returned to his first love-piano teaching. LaWayne currently resides in Dellwood, Minnesota.
