Mr. Doug Norton


Summer 2019 Lesson Registration is NOW OPEN! Click Here! I'm accepting a limited number of PIANO and BASS GUITAR students for a special SUMMER ONLY term. Take 8 lessons this summer, and spread them out over 12 weeks, from June 1-August 31.

Welcome to my site!

Who am I? I'm a special educator, Virginia K-12 general curriculum, and I'm also highly qualified in elementary education.

My professional background is in teaching private music lessons for the last 25 years, with the last 15 of that operating a commercial music lesson studio full time, serving about 200 students a week in piano, guitar, bass, drums, violin, and voice.

I retired from the music business in 2018 in order to focus on academics in the public school setting. Although I'm no longer active in the music business, I still mentor and support students and families who are interested in enhancing their lives and academic careers with music. Please feel free to contact me if you'd like to discuss options for your student.

Piano Tuning -- In addition to being an educator, I am also an experienced piano technician. I spent a great deal of my professional music career as a piano technician in concert halls and recording studios, working with top tier artists. I've also worked extensively in local churches, piano stores, and private residences. I still tune pianos very occasionally as time permits. I regret that I am only able to tune grand and baby grand pianos anymore, due to a shoulder condition that is aggravated by tuning upright and spinet pianos. I appreciate your understanding. Please call or text me on one of the numbers below if you're interested in tuning services.
