Testimonial for Mr. Norman… (I teach the mum as well)
I thought it would be a great idea to introduce my 4 1/2 year old son to the piano and begin easing him into learning how to play. Mr. Norman was the fourth teacher I contacted as the previous three wouldn’t even consider taking a child younger than seven. Mr. Norman, on the other hand, was excited about teaching a child so young and was bubbling over with ideas. I wasn’t sure how long that first lesson would last and was hoping for fifteen minutes of focus from my son; forty-five minutes later Mr. Norman and my son were still going strong. Mr. Norman carefully structures each lesson with a variety of activities that teach not just the fundamentals of piano, but an overall appreciation of music. My son is learning about rhythm, high and low notes, the keys on the piano, identifying notes, and proper posture. Another great plus is that Mr. Norman comes to our home–how nice not to have to deal with traffic and finding a parking place. His arrival is the highlight of my son’s day. I could not have asked for a better introduction to the piano for my son. He’s not only learning the fundamentals, but he’s having a blast doing it.

A very grateful and satisfied customer
I’m one of those adults who took piano lessons as a child for a year or two, gave it up, and have always regretted it ever since. I wanted my son to start taking piano lessons this year, and then thought, “Why should he have all the fun?” When I asked Mr. Norman to become my child’s piano teacher, I also inquired as to whether he’d take on a very rusty, practically-a-beginner mother as well. Mr. Norman was delighted to have us both as students. Mr. Norman has covered areas of piano teaching that I didn’t even realize were important, such as posture, hand movement, and relaxation exercises. He has also taught me that playing the piano is much more than just hitting the right notes. He focuses on the essential thinking processes that are necessary for good piano playing. His approach is very thoughtful and specifically tailored to my skill level and interests. The only problem is that my son always insists on going first!

“My pleasure I loved your work shop it was amazing I went in such deep relaxation. It was amazing. Thank you so much for taking the time for all of us.”
I hope you are well. I did my first session of BVT with Norman on Saturday and it was really great. I find the information/classes really helpful not only with presenting yourself in a big group but also helpful with everyday life in meetings, talking to clients, ect. Thank you so much for referring me!
“I did the BVT course with Mr. Norman Cristina and found this extremely helpful not only in my BNI 60 seconds but also in everyday life. He points out things from what should be obvious but we forget – such as stand up straight, remember to breath, how to breath and so forth. Then he also delves into the less obvious with such passion that you want to know more and want to apply this! The course is a structured flow of information – working towards a goal. I would recommend this to anyone in the BNI or who works with people on a daily basis! It is definitely worth your time! “

My compliments for your dedication and love towards music, you express it in such a way that encourages me to be a better singer. You gave me freedom of expression and confidence.

I have been a student of Mr. Norman for a few months and I have found it very educational and professional. I have gotten great value from each lesson and I feel I have made great progress in understanding music and learning technics related to singing. I have also gained more awareness on posture and breathing that helps me in my daily life. I highly recommend Mr. Norman for anyone that wants to learn about music, singing or how to play an instrument. He works in a very professional way and manages to explain things in a language that is easily understood.
