Overview

I started taking piano lessons at age 6, learned to read music and play mostly classical, my first pop song was Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves by Cher, remember that great riff at the beginning? I was beyond thrilled to actually play it myself. These are the kind of experiences I seek to provide my students, enjoying the thrill of actually making music, not just going over mundane head information. I do combine learning by ear with reading music, teaching theory along with the music making as well. Music is really simple, repetitive and easy to learn. It's a life long gift you give yourself and others. I started singing seriously in 9th grade, I had the greatest teacher, in fact he turned my life around because I had been running with the wrong crowd, but now that he told me I could sing I had a reason to straighten myself up and he made me feel like my talent was worth something. I grew in confidence and entered college as a double major, voice and piano. I enjoy teaching singing because it's so personal and I help people figure out a lot about themselves and singing through our lessons together. I teach people how to balance their voice through excersises and specially picked songs that extend the excersizes into 'real life'. It only takes a few lessons for my voice students to experience positive change in their voices and their lives. Teaching music is a beautiful way to live. I invite you to experience this beautiful gift with me!

*** Lesson Details ***
For both piano and voice students I will evaluate where you are first and then I use Faber for a lot of my piano students because it has nice graphics, fun activities, moves at a good pace, not too slow, not too fast. If the student has already studied I ask them to bring the music they already have and we proceed forward from there. The voice students are also evaluated and then informed about their tendencies and given excersises to help them learn new, better tendencies. Songs are assigned for student to learn and hopefully enjoy.
Regular practice is expected from the beginning and I give award and incentives for it to get you started right.

Over the years I've had a few different piano teachers, and Debbie is definitely the best! She is patient, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. I will refer her to everyone who asks me about taking lessons.

Debbie is the best teacher anyone could possibly have! She is very well educated and knows how to explain things in a way that anyone could understand. I will definitely recommend her to anyone seeking a vocal coach.
