About Debbie S.

Male Ages Taught: 5 to 99

Overview

I received my BA in Music from UCSB and my MA in Humanities (emphasis in music history) from CSUDH. I have been a piano teacher for many years, and many of my students have gone on to become professional musicians themselves. I am a member of MTAC, am a Certificate of Merit adjudicator, and am on the editorial board of the MTAC state magazine. An enthusiastic and encouraging teacher, I enjoy helping my students achieve their musical goals. Home school students and older adults are especially welcomed.

Lessons are personalized for each individual student. Most lessons include ear training, note reading, chord structure, and music history as it relates to the pieces the student is learning. I welcome students of all ages and all levels.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano, music books, lessons books, and reference books.

*** Specialties ***
I incorporate reading, ear training, technique and music history into the lessons.

Debbie S Review

I came to Debbie after not playing the piano for 40 years. I'm an older adult and dealing with illness. I told Debbie that I wanted to take up the piano for improving mental focus. She was understanding and patient with me. I felt at ease with her style of instruction. I had to stop taking lessons for other reasons but I feel that I was beginning to focus and concentrate better but the best part is that I am playing the piano for my own personal enjoyment. Debbie opened a door for me that I hope to continue with. Thank you Debbie
