Music has been an integral part of my world, playing a major role in both my personal and professional life. I embrace the chance to be immersed in it, to share my enthusiasm for and expertise in the area of the music education experience, promoting creative development and student performance skills.

My 6 year old daughter loves her piano lessons!

My 6 year old daughter has been taking weekly, in-home piano lessons with Dan for several months now. Dan is great at keeping her focused, while making it fun. She has already learned so much from him, and she looks forward to her lesson every week. Dan is very professional and punctual. We have been very happy with his teaching, and highly recommend him!

About Brian

When you take Guitar or Singing lessons, you will truly be in for a unique and eye opening experience.

Rachel G. Hampton, VA

About Rachel

Hi, there! My name is Rachel, and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2002, and have loved helping my students learn to read and play, discover their own love of music, and conquer their fears of performing (so much "proud mama bear" happening!). In 2003, I earned my violin performance degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I also studied piano and vocal pedagogy. I'm an encouraging and fun person to work with (if I may say so myself!), and my teaching style is fun, positive, and relaxed. I have worked with many students, including some with learning disabilities, physical limitations, PTSD, and just plain ol' stage fright! I work with you to set your own goals, and I look forward to helping you reach them... ...

I have always wanted to learn to play the piano. I am 68 now so it’s about time. I saw Rachel’s ad and decided to give it a try. She is very knowledgeable and the lessons are actually fun and the time goes by quickly. I am glad that I called her. I like taking lessons from someone who performs.

Music Lessons in Norfolk, VA

Virginia is full of talented musicians, but they don't often get the recognition they deserve. Country legend Roy Clark is from Meherrin, and jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald was from Newport News. Norfolk also laid the foundation for hip-hop musician and producer Timbaland and rock-and-roll legend Clarence Clemons, saxophone player for Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band.

Norfolk music lessons have helped local talent become legends, and the one-on-one attention is an essential part of any musician's path to success. Even the best musicians need instructors to hone their talents and give them the industry secrets before they can make an impact in the business.

TakeLessons is the nation’s premier provider of music lessons, with pre-screened instructors to ensure your safety and
