Bio

Norbert, a native of Chicago, began playing at the age of 8 on the organ, taking 8 contiguous years of private instruction from Les Barr Music Studios. Over the years, Norbert picked up and excelled at piano, synthesizers, guitar and drums. 

Norbert’’s first love is performance, complimented by session (studio) work, composing, and instruction. He writes songs, jingles, and ringtones. Norbert’s performance structures, in addition to solo, include duo, trio, and band ensembles.  

In the studio, Norbert composed and/or arranged, co-engineered and recorded a dozen songs for the rock/pop band Harlem Avenue, with which he was a co-founder, resulting in significant sales under the label Rella Records.

Norbert gave private in-person lessons for piano and organ for several years. Professional, viewer-friendly instructional DVDs/media are now available at this site.

Norbert is also an accomplished airbrush artist (see Photos link for an eye-grabbing Porsche he airbrushed on a shirt) and holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.) and a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.). 

Be sure to peruse through the Music section. There you will find samples of Norbert's performances as well as a photo of instructional DVDs he recorded, produced by J.P. Mueller Productions, for budding piano players.
