Debra L. Ambler, PA

I teach piano lessons, from beginner through early intermediate. Ages range from kindergarten-aged children though adult, beginners to those returning to piano. I'm a member of MTNA and keep my skills current. I offer recital and performance opportunities to students who are interested.

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 “coming back” 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 “ear” for students with 2-3 years of piano or other musical instrument. In addition to teaching ...

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€¦.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€¦.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.

The instructor was outstanding.......great personality. She was personable, professional, knew her subject area and made learning fun. I actually looked forward to meeting with her. In just a few sessions, I can see much awareness and improvement on my part. I am totally satisfied.
Benjamin K. Glenside, PA

Piano was my first instrument, and the best instrument for all beginners. I teach everything from the Suzuki method to Elton John to Art Tatum to Herbie Hancock

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 favorite ...

Ben was fabulous! He taught me music I wanted to play at a speed that fit for me and simplified harder songs for a beginner like me to still be able to play a song I loved! Great teacher and picks up on your strengths and weakness. I would highly recommended him as a teacher! He's also funny and would make lesson's enjoyable! He was friendly to my dog and birds as well :)

Ben, has only been teaching my daughter for about 2 months, but she really seems to enjoy the lessons.

Lessons are tailored according to the student's ability. Method books are generally encouraged but are supplemented by materials based on student interest and teacher recommendation. Adaptive materials can be created based on student need.

So happy we found Dena!

My 9 yr old daughter loves her singing lessons with Dena! She loves to sing so much, I thought it would be a good idea to have her get lessons. She was nervous at first, but she really enjoys the lessons, and she's definitely improved under Dena's direction. Dena is warm and friendly, and yet professional at the same time. We're very pleased, and I would recommend her to anyone!

About Adrienne

Why and how did I get into taking harp lessons? Well, as a young girl, I remember being mystified by the harp in Fantasia and when I was in high school, my dad found a teacher. After the first lesson, I was hooked and the rest is history! My 10 years of piano study and 8 years of flute background helped me advance quickly at the harp while starting at the age of 16. I began my higher education at Penn State University where I entered as a flute major because I was not quite at the advanced level of harp that was required at the college level. However, after playing principal harp with the Penn State Philharmonic Orchestra and Symphonic Wind Ensemble, I realized harp to be my true calling and switched my major instrument. I graduated from Penn State in 2009 with a BA Music degree and ...

Adrriene welcomed me into her very neat, well-lit and cozy house, and into an overall comfortable atmosphere. She was very warm and patient, and took my personal musical goals in mind. (I'm not planning to become a concert harpist, but to learn to play and enjoy the 19-string celtic harp that my wife bought me as a gift, and perhaps play in church.) With this in mind, she took off with the first lesson with a song that I've been wanting to learn for a very long time, and made it into an exercise. I should now, with a two-week time gap for practice, be able to learn to correctly position my fingers and pluck the strings with a clear and crisp sound. Looking forward to my second lesson.

great teacher for young students

Adrienne is a wonderful music teacher. She makes music easily accessible to young children (and their tone deaf parents). She is very patient, organized, and responsible. We highly recommend her.

In the lesson we will work on how to read music and play the piano. I have students purchase a book and we work through it, I often use the Alfred series of piano books.

Maja has infinite patience and makes the lessons fun. Her sweet puppy is the first to greet you when you walk into the studio and is obviously well trained since he doesn't howl when he's listening to my playing. :) We set some goals and targets and I know that I'll be playing the tunes that I want by Christmas. What do you think Maja, concert pianist by this time next year. LOL... or maybe just Twinkle, twinkle little star.
Eric C. Abington, PA

My formal training in piano began at the age of 12. My goal is to provide those with no previous piano training with tools needed to succeed as a pianist. This includes developing a strong foundation of music theory, sight reading, and performance skills.

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'™s Alma Mata which he still ...

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!
