Get to know Norman Tibbils

I have been teaching other people to play musical instruments since the moment I got home from my first music store guitar lesson. And while I am fortunate that teaching has always come naturally to me, I am very grateful that my degrees in music performance, music education, and instructional design/writing have given me the knowledge and technology to earn my entire livelihood as an studio music teacher.

I’m looking forward to working with many new friends as part of the Music&Arts organization. Hope to see you soon!
