Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Speaking Voice

About Me

Elizabeth has been praised for her clear ringing soprano voice, excellent comic timing, and warm and enlightening performances (The News Journal of Wilmington, DE). She is a versatile singer and actively performs in musical theatre, operetta, and opera. She is also an established and respected voice and piano teacher.

Elizabeth was most recently seen as Joanie in The Full Monty at Candlelight Theatre in Delaware. Other recent performances include June in Musical of Musicals: The Musical and Peaches/ Baby Jane in Jerry Springer: The Opera with Bootless Stageworks in Wilmington, DE, solo performances with the New Voices Cabaret at the Society Hill Playhouse in Center City, and Woman 2 in My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra with Mainstage Center for the Arts in Blackwood, NJ. She has performed numerous leading roles with Philadelphia area Gilbert and Sullivan companies, most notably appearing as Angelina in Trial by Jury with The Savoy Company, winning Best American Production at the 2011 International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival. Her G &S performance credits include the roles of Patience (Patience), Yum-Yum (The Mikado), Rose Maybud (Ruddigore), Phyllis (Iolanthe), and Fiammetta (Gondoliers). Additionally, she has pioneered roles in new operas, including Gwendolyn in The Crowded House at the 2010 Philly Fringe Festival and Zelda in Black Horses with OperaDelaware at the 2009 Wilmington Fringe Festival. She "tackled the challenging score with gusto, her beautiful soprano and excellent diction winning in even the highest vocal points" (The Community News of Wilmington, DE).

Elizabeth holds an M.M. in vocal performance from West Virginia University, where she was featured in numerous WVU Opera Theatre productions and was the soprano soloist with WVU Choirs in Faure's Requiem and Handel's Lord Nelson Mass. While at WVU, Elizabeth resumed taking lessons at the piano, which she had previously studied for many years, and exceeded the piano proficiency level required by the university. She also holds a B.A. in music and international studies from Emory University. Elizabeth has studied and performed internationally, both at the American Institute of Musical Studies in Graz, Austria, where she was the recipient of the Lemmonds Scholarship, and at the Bel Canto program in conjunction with L'Arena di Verona opera company in Verona, Italy.

As a graduate assistant at WVU, Elizabeth taught voice lessons to music education and performance majors as well as a course on vocal pedagogy. After graduating, she served as adjunct faculty, in which capacity she taught vocal repertoire and opera theater. She has maintained a private studio since 2005, in which she instructs students in voice and piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a fun, enthusiastic teacher who cares deeply about her students and their growth as musicians and people. I believe teaching works best when students are relaxed, having fun, and are actively engaged in the learning process. Musical skills depend upon muscles, so it is important that you practice what we work on during lessons at home if you wish to see real progress. I will work hard along with you and ask for your input during lessons; we are partners in the learning process.

My specialty is the voice. I teach classical vocal technique with an emphasis on the body-mind connection. Through the course of my training, I have studied the Alexander Technique, which is a method that has been used by actors, musicians, and athletes to find optimal body-mind coordination to achieve better results. The voice is the only instrument that is literally your body, so we will be using these tools to improve posture, breathing, and resonance. By learning a healthy vocal technique, you can expect improved tone quality, an expanded vocal and dynamic range, greater resonance, increased agility, improved diction, and more. Healthy vocal technique can be applied to any genre, but I work mostly with classical and musical theater repertoire as this is my area of expertise.

I am also an established piano teacher and have had much success teaching beginning and intermediate students from ages 4 to 91 in various styles of music. I believe it is important for students to learn how to read and interpret written music as well as understand the structure behind it, so in addition to learning musical basics, I incorporate music theory into lessons. I encourage my piano students to learn how to read lead sheets and create chord accompaniments as well, which opens the door for comfortably playing in all sorts of styles sooner than would be possible by classical approaches alone. I also work on improvisation and songwriting with my piano students.

Whichever you choose to study (voice, piano, or both), I tailor lessons to suit each student's needs. I would like to enable you to meet your musical goals, whatever they may be.

Debra L. Ambler, PA

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Piano, Singing, Songwriting, Speaking Voice

About Me

I love teaching and providing a supportive and creative environment where my students have fun learning to make music. I work with students at their own pace to make their musical experience both enjoyable and educational. My students look forward to their lessons, and our time together each week passes by quickly!

I'm skilled in playing and teaching classical music as well as theater and pop repertoire for students of all ages. I enjoy working with young students who are beginners, and also with teens or adults who are ‚¬Ä¬úcoming back‚¬Ä¬Ě to piano, or learning for the first time. I've developed a Pop-Piano Method based on learning chord structure and music theory for playing by ‚¬Ä¬úear‚¬Ä¬Ě for students with 2-3 years of piano or other musical instrument.

In addition to teaching piano, I teach voice for all musical styles -- pop, jazz, rock, blues, country, R&B, musical theater, choral, and classical. I'm knowledgeable about vocal physiology and health, and effective in teaching everything from pitch correction to vocal health, relaxation and performance techniques for both on stage and in the recording studio ‚¬Ä¶ or the shower!

I've worked with singers, from age 5 through 80, including teens and adults who love to sing country-pop-rock, who sing in choirs, or with bands; I coach teen and adult actors singing in high school productions and community theater (opera or musicals); I help choral singers with sight reading, and teach all singers how to use and think of their body as their instrument. Basic music training in reading notes, rhythm, pitch and ear training, familiarity with the piano/keyboard, are part of the vocal lesson.

I present a number of performance opportunities for my students with recitals several times throughout the year. Students also have the opportunity to record at a professional recording studio, which shares the same facility where I have my teaching studio.

As a performing singer-songwriter, I also teach songwriting, starting with young students to encourage creativity, and to teens and adults, who are interested in writing, performing and recording their own original songs.

I also sing professionally performing jazz standards; as a background vocalist on CDs for recording artists; and play piano in a piano-flute instrumental duo for special events. I‚¬Ä¬ôm also a member of a talented contemporary worship band at my local church.

I have a degree from West Chester University (West Chester, PA) with a concentration in piano pedagogy, and I take continuing education courses to stay current with the latest in piano teaching methods. I'm certified as a Voiceworks TM Associate for the Total Singer Method TM, and keep current in my own vocal studies and training.

In addition to teaching voice and piano, I teach and facilitate regional songwriting workshops as part of an international songwriting association based in Nashville.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm patient, encouraging and friendly, teaching piano and voice lessons, often integrating both into lessons for students interested in playing piano and singing.

For piano beginners, I teach traditional methods using current books designed for steady advancement for sight reading notes, rhythm, performance technique, theory, and ear training. Students play songs from a variety of repertoire, including classical and popular songs. Students are also given opportunities to create their own songs, melodies, and to improvise.

As students advance, they become involved in selecting repertoire they would like to play. I encourage students to learn classical music, along with popular songs they are interested in playing. After 2-3 years of lessons, I offer a Pop-Piano Method for playing by ear through knowledge of music theory and chord structure.

For singing, I'm certified to teach the Total Singer TM method. From the first lesson we learn how to use the diaphragm and breath for instant results. From there we hone in on specific styles the student enjoys singing (country, musical theater, pop, classical, jazz, R&B, gospel) and learn the nuances of how to use our "toolbox", including jaw, tongue, larynx, and so on, to create the sound we want. Ear and pitch training and basic musical terms and concepts are part of each lesson. Students are involved in choosing repertoire. Students record their lessons to use for practice at home.

For voice students who play the piano, I teach the Pop-Piano Method for Singers, where they learn to accompany themselves playing the piano by ear through knowledge of music theory and chord structure.
