• Hi!  My name is Richard Knapp, and I am happy to be teaching Vocal Music full time at Wines this year, after several years of being here part time.  I went to Western Michigan University, and received my Master's degree from VanderCook College of Music.  I had a long career singing and dancing professionally in Chicago and New York before I started teaching music.  When I am not teaching, I love to read, walk, and ride my bike, and sing in choir and onstage in community theater.  I look forward to helping your child discover new things about music.
