In addition to teaching music, I am also an award winning songwriter and trained songwriting instructor through the Nashville Songwriting Association International (NSAI). I work with teens and adults, to write commercial pop songs, both lyrics and music. My students have the opportunity to record their songs, to receive artist development training as performing singer-songwriters, and also to perform their original music.

About Debra

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 ...

I sought out Debra for help with my speaking voice and soon made, with her help, a surprising discovery - that I can actually sing! Somehow I spent a lifetime believing that I "couldn't carry a tune in a bucket", and made it a point always to sing SOLO - "so low nobody can hear you!"
Debbie set me straight - she taught me the mechanics of singing, and helped me realize I CAN carry a tune - without a bucket! With her cheerful patience and encouragement I feel like I have been given a gift - an ability to sing with confidence and joy, whether in the pew at Church, with the radio in the car, to my grandchildren¬Ä¦.now when I sing "unto the Lord" I no longer fear I am simply "making a joyful noise", and am so grateful to have this pleasure at a later stage in my life. I hope to find just the right choir to join to thoroughly enjoy this new-found gift¬Ä¦.Thank you, Debra, for being such a great teacher - it has been a delightful experience getting to know you and working with you!

Debra is a fantastic voice coach for my daughter! She is extremely knowledgeable, caring and patient. She teaches the basics and builds on those fundamental skills. As a result, not only has my daughter's singing voice improved--so has her stage presence, speaking voice and overall poise. I would highly recommend Debra as a singing teacher.

About Benjamin

I grew up in Glenside moved to Pittsburgh for school and came back because I love it here...I've been playing for 17 years and have a smorgasbord of influences from Zeppelin to the Beatles to Phish to Radiohead to the dirty projectors to Jay Z to Kurt Rosenwinkel & John Scofield. I have been composing and working with original bands for some 11 years and play regularly in the city and up and down the east coast. I have also been teaching for the past 11 years all over the Philadelphia area. i teach from a method I derived myself from years of learning both in and out of school. I think teaching music is both aural as well as visual and encourage students to listen to music a lot. most of all i feel that music is fun and the students should enjoy learning so i incorporate their ...

Excellent Instructor

I highly recommend Benjamin! I have had several instructors and I can honestly say that he is the best I've had so far. He doesn't stick to any rigid lesson plans. His teaching style is very dynamic, he will taylor the lesson to fit your interest and level of playing. He keeps things fun and interesting and is good at coming up with creative exercises to try and challenge you. He also knows a lot of different music styles from what I can tell. I highly recommend him.

About Mike

He teaches for several area conservatories and hosts master classes on composition, performance, guitar and bass improvisation. Mike now offers lessons in his professional home studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
Mike's approach is to use the student's own musical tastes to develop an appreciation for the instrument. If you like rock, you learn by playing rock. If you like jazz, you learn by playing jazz. Mike's approach makes it painless to learn to read, train your ear and develop monster chops quickly.

Mike has been very patient and helpful and takes the time to carefully explain the instruction given. Besides being a great teacher Mike is very personable and that makes the lessons stress free. Taking lessons from an accomplished working musician is the best possible choice.
Thank you Mike for taking me on as a student!

Mike is the best!!

I always wanted to learn Violin, but at 26 I thought I'd never get very far. Mike is teaching me Improvisation so that I can jam with my bluegrass friends. After 9 months of lessons with Mike, I am starting to really understand my instrument and am able to jam with my friends! I never thought I would progress this quickly and I know that is all due to the way Mike has taught me and teaching me certain things every week that I can build on and practice at home. I definitely recommend Mike for lessons on any instrument, he is a talented multi-instrumentalist who is interested in all genres of music from classical to country, he is accessible and doesn't make you feel like an idiot when you don't get it right, but he is also tough enough on you that you progress very quickly. He is also interested in teaching you what you want to learn, the right way, so you can get the most out of your musical experience. Playing fiddle is now one of my favorite things to do, I get so much joy out of it, all thanks to Mike and a little hard work!! :)

We definitely recommend!

My son just started guitar (electric) and he's young-9. So getting him started on an instrument is no easy task but Mike is very patient and makes the lessons fun & interesting while teaching strong music structure. I can't believe how much they can cover in a half hour when it takes me a half hour just to get him to get his school homework binder out at home! I really look forward to watching my son progress. Great stuff!!

Michael C. Philadelphia, PA

Learn the basics of music theory which allow us to create and ourselves musically. Learn about harmony, melody, rhythm and structure (form) of music in order to use the knowledge to compose your own music.

About Michael

Michael C. was eleven years old when he began to play the electric bass guitar. He decided to get an electric bass because it was the one instrument needed to start a band among his friends. In addition to playing the electric bass, Michael enjoyed time practicing on the guitar and piano in high school. Transferring the knowledge and finger technique to the guitar came easy because of the similarities between guitar and the bass. And growing up with an upright piano in the house always lead to tinkering and eventually became a proficiency after college. In 1996 Michael enrolled at the the Philadelphia University of the Arts. He was awarded a presidential merit scholarship and a university grant based on his entrance audition. During his studies Michael was recruited for a student ...

Original Gift Idea

I purchased 5 lessons from Michael as a Christmas gift for my wife. It was a fantastic idea- she loves her lessons! Michael is a very skilled teacher and I have already noticed improvements in my wife's playing.

I highly recommend Michael for anyone looking for a music teacher.
Eric C. Abington, PA

I have been writing songs since the age of 12 and I seek to help other beginner writers. For students interested in songwriting we will use original songs (prefer song to be copyrighted) as our teaching material.

About Eric

Eric was raised in a single parent home in the city of Philadelphia. It was at the age of 12, without prior instruction, that Eric began to play the piano and write songs. Seeing this talent Eric was immediately enrolled into music school to take piano lessons. At his local church Eric eventually became the assistant youth choir director and worship leader. As a songwriter, Eric has shared his music with local artists and has had one of his songs recorded by a local gospel artist.

In 2002, Eric enrolled in Millersville University of Pennsylvania as a music major with voice as his primary instrument. Eric quickly became the choral director for the university's Gospel Choir. This afforded him the opportunity to arrange a contemporary version of the school'¬ôs Alma Mata which ...

Eric is an excellent teacher, music leader and coach. His style of teaching is completely comprehensive. He doesn't simply focus on the mechanics of singing, he stresses that dynamics, expression, reflection and emotion are just as important. Eric is a gifted and patient teacher whose instruction provides the training and tools to help you push beyond what you thought was your best.

Eric is a phenomenal coach! He's so calm. He doesn't bark at you when you mess up. I am harder on myself than he is. He requires your best. He taught me that there's more that I can do with my voice than I thought I was capable off. I admire his skill, and love for his craft. Just phenomenal!

I have been a student of Eric for years. He truly is the best vocal coach I have ever worked with. As a gospel singer and worship leader that has a wide rang of experience in the music industry including touring as a back up singer for well known gospel artist in the region, singing on multiple albums, facilitating music workshops, and being a leader music ministries, I am no stranger to what good singing is or how to do it. That is what makes Mr. Eric so special! He knowledge of Music theory, instrumentation, and vocal coaching, were able to propel me to an entirely new level of performance. His training has allowed me to hone and perfect my craft. I have truly grown in knowledge and skill as a DIRECT result of his teaching. He techniques for vocal coaching are one of a kind and work not only beginning singers, but seasoned singers as well. He is the best!
