Amidst all the chaos going on in this world, I write songs to remind myself of what’s important, to appreciate the little things I tend to overlook. Songwriting has become a vehicle for my innermost expressions, crafting my story through a strum of my guitar and a line I can’t stop singing from my tiny notebook. Let me help you do the same, let the music inside of you exemplify your experiences and speak your stories.

Phil Norris has been teaching trumpet since 1983. He teaches the physical side of the trumpet as well as the musical side. The trumpet, being one of the most physically grueling instruments, demands this. He gives a customized routine for the student to do at home and he also helps with those who are having embouchure problems, whether they’ve developed a bad habit or have had to deal with braces.
On the musical side, Phil teaches jazz improv, big band lead, how to play in a rock horn section, and even classical style. Of course reading music and helping with the student’s school material is also focused on.

About Phil

*** Specialties *** I specialize in embouchure development and the physical side of playing a trumpet first. Of course I teach music too and help with a students' school band music,etc.

My son has been a trumpet student with Phil Norris for the past 3 years. I am very pleased with the instruction. Phil continues to work with Alex to improve his embouchure through various lip exercises and slurs. Also, works on diaphragm strength through various exercise. Alex is one of the top trumpet players at his school as a freshman. His range and tone has dramatically improved since working with Phil. Phil is fun and engaging as well. I highly recommend Phil to anyone looking for a competent and skilled music instructor.
Greg
I took lessons from Phil for 3 years
and played alongside him on a few gigs. Phil is the real deal. He can scream high notes, low notes, and everything in between. He can help you get results.
Gary
I have been taking lessons from Phil for almost two years. He is very patient making the student feel comfortable. He is not harshly critical. Just gives good feedback. He is a master of appropriately challenging the student. At times he will play along with me which I find helpful. If I miss a lesson he gives me make up lessons. His rates are more than fair. I highly recommend Phil for trumpet instruction.

I love tailoring lessons to my students! Music is personal and I want to make sure you're learning what you're interested in or need to learn in order to prepare you for auditions or keep up in groups you play in. I always ask students for a list of music they're listening to or want to learn - nothing's off limits!

Stephanie is patient, quick to respond and very flexible. I'm a adult beginner and she has been my teacher for a year now. She makes me feel comfortable when learning. I have a very busy schedule and she is always willing to work with me including coming to my home late at night. She is easy going and it's been a great year and I have learned alot! I definitely recommend and am continuing lessons with her!
Rebecca
Stephanie is wonderful. First of all, she is a truly virtuosic player. She plays beautifully. That is hugely important. Never hire a violin teacher who does not make a gorgous sound. She makes a gorgeous sound. Second, she is an amazing TEACHER. She knows how to tailor her approach to the student’s unique learning style and musical tastes. She can take you through a purely classical curriculum, or she can also help you learn to play your favorite pop songs. I have been taking lessons with her for two years and my adult (step)daughter who has Down Syndrome has been studying with her for a little over a year. I have progressed consistently and my stepdaughter has also progressed consistently. Stephanie definitly knows how to collaborate with me to adapt her lessons to my (step)daughter’s special needs. My (step)daughter loves her lessons and Stephanie mixes things up to keep her excited and motivated to practice. Stephanie prepares more in advance for lessons than any instrument teacher I have ever observed. She creates her own teaching aids for each student, personalized to their needs. She has formal Suzuki training both as a learner and teacher, so she knows the Suzuki curriculum, and can use a strictly Suzuki approach for people who want that, but she also knows the scope and sequences of skills so thoroughly that she can guide students without relying on Suzuki if that approach is preferred. She takes a positive approach, helping students to learn to listen to and evaluate their own playing rather than over critiquing. She teaches students to practice effectively, and uses questions to gently guide students to draw appropriate conclusions about what they need to do to improve their playing. She paces lessons well. She does not require perfection before moving on, but also discourages racing through repertoire without developing the target skill represented by the repertoire. She does not waste lesson time. She uses lesson time very efficiently. Her demeanor is warm, calm, mindful, gentle and kind, but firm about holding students to appropriately high expectations. I started wth her as an adult beginner and have loved every minute. I am now an intermediate player... sooner than I expected. She is also very reliable. She does not forget appointments or run late or cancel frequently. The room she teaches in is clean and organized. I really think she is very appropriate for gifted kids, average kids, kids with special needs, and adult beginners both typical and with special needs.

Superb instructor! Stacey was able to assess my level of proficiency within minutes and expertly tailored the first lesson accordingly. HIs teaching style and personal approach toward learning the guitar made me feel comfortable and confident at the same time. I couldn't be happier that I've found a guitar teacher like Stacey; I'm very much looking forward to future lessons.

Stacey is the most qualified and established player I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I feel very lucky to have him accept me as a student. He is warm, friendly and highly skilled. Look no further for an instructor, if you want the best!

I’m going into my 4th week of lessons with Stacey, I made so much progress with him, than with my last instructor. For the first time I’m not as frustrated. I like that he is teaching me how to play, and not just show me tabs and good luck....I highly recommend him as your instructor !

I am currently a last year doctorate student in clarinet performance and the clarinet teaching assistant at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami. In May 2016, I graduated from California State University with a Master in Music in clarinet performance under the teaching of Hakan Rosengren, international soloist. In 2017, prior to my doctorate studies, I studied with Boris Allakhverdyan, principal clarinetist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
I am also a Buffet Crampon USA artist.

I have the experience of teaching private lessons in France and America and I am seeking clarinet students of every level and age.

I will focus my teaching on your needs and can help you improve technique, musicianship and sound production. I also can help you get ready for auditions and recitals.
