I’ve always was a musician but only discovered my voice 10 years ago. I have gone through so many struggles to find my voice and I can help you find yours quicker than I did. I have gone through the wrong path and have had amazing teachers get me out of traps and dead ends and in return I’ve been able to help my students do the same. I’ve been teaching for 6 years now and it has been another passion of mine to see my students grow and achieve their dreams.

About Norman

I am a profesional operatic Bass from San Jose California and now living in Wilmington DE. While I was in California, I sung with many opera companies around the Bay Area. Singing has been my number one passion but teaching comes in at a close second. I love seeing my students grow and watching t

In addition to my extensive performing career, I am very passionate about helping the next generation of musicians find their own unique voices to share with the world.

With over 5 years of experience and a quickly growing studio, I have helped preteen children through older adults find their special singing voice through technical and musical study in many genres. My process is heavily based in classical healthy singing which I then apply to musical theater, pop, jazz, country, anything you want to learn!

I believe learning music and especially learning to sing are incredibly important for all kinds of people as it builds confidence, teaches mind and body awareness, and develops social skills. Let's see what learning to sing can do for you!

Learn to express yourself through the art of piano playing. We will learn and then perfect the very fundamentals of music-making through an engaging, exciting method that is suitable and adaptable for students of any experience and age level.

About Kristapor

I believe Music is, most importantly, a tool for communication. As a teacher, my goal is to show students how to use this tool on their path towards clearer, more confident self-expression, and in so doing, further myself along the same path. As an instrumentalist and composer, I have the priv

Very informative, positive, and patient teacher.

Kristapor is a wonderful teacher. He not only taught my son violin, but also inspired him to be a better violinist. He spent hours with my son to come up with a high standard audition tape for applying a summer music camp. My son got accepted & had a great time learning music at the camp. Thank you, Kristapor!!!!

I took violin lessons from Kris for nearly two years, until moving out of LA. He is an extremely talented musician and teacher. During these lessons, my violin technique and musical expression both considerably improved. Kris is very patient, and able to teach multiple methods to successfully master various violin techniques (such as vibrato). Through implementing improvisation into the lessons, Kris can also bring out the student's musical creativity and confidence, which not only helps aspiring composers, but guides violin students in adding expression to the music they're currently learning. He encourages students to challenge themselves, but effectively teaches all of the techniques necessary to accomplish their musical goals.

He is also a brilliant composer, and is an excellent composition teacher as well! Although my lessons were mostly focused on violin, he provided much useful advice for improving my compositions for orchestra and symphonic band as well.

I highly recommend Kris as an instructor for music students of any proficiency level!

I've studied music academically as well as in the Jazz clubs under excellent musicians. I'm trained in both classical and jazz. I find the best way to learn music is through enjoyment and finding a true connection between the artist and their instrument. Whether my students want to learn how to improvise, read music, or have in-depth explanations of theory, I can teach all these subjects in a plethora of ways to ensure they learn fast.

"Stephanie truly caters to making the most of her student's talent. My 11-year-old daughter has been taking lessons from her for about a year and a half and has developed tremendously. Stephanie teaches towards the student's interests and immensely helps in actual performances. There is analysis and breakdown of not just notes in the songs but also the feelings and facial expressions that enhance the performance. My daughter never feels unprepared for any singing performance big or small. My child has been empowered to go for any school auditions with the confidence Stephanie continually helps to build. More importantly, Stephanie develops a great rapport with her students that helps them feel very much at ease with the learning process. Very highly recommended!"

"working with Jordan overall has been a great experience. He has done an excellent job in balancing my desire to play right away with the necessary skills to ensure long term results. Jordan has a very broad range of playing skills, types of music, and talent to accommodate anyone looking to further their guitar skills. We have bounced around from blues to rock to christian worship songs and from accoustic to electric. For someone that is an accomplished musician he displays and embodies a lot of patience in working with beginners. I would recommend him to anyone that asks and that is serious in furthering their playing abilities!"

The History of the Piano The piano is an amazing stringed instrument that uses percussion to create a full, resonating sound.
