*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back instructor with an incredible love for music. I will tailor each lesson to the needs of each individual student. I love teaching dedicated and diligent students. I am well versed in teaching various styles of music including but not limited to classical, jazz, and musical theater. I encourage my students to become musicians and not just vocalist. Each lesson will be comprised of a vocal warm-up, vocalizing exercises, ear-training, music theory, and singing. I will include a little history and diction when needed. When you study with me you will leave with the ability to sing any type of music of your choosing. I will infuse each student with my own passionate spirit for music. Lets sing!
*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room set up for lessons with piano and microphones. Parents are able to sit in on lessons.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring my own keyboard and tape/cd player. I would like for students to have a mirror and a cassette tape or other recording method for practicing purposes.
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Jazz Vocal Performance, though I was trained to sing Classical and Broadway music as well.

Debbie is available for lessons in her home studio in Potterstone Village, Pittsboro. Music is a lifelong gift that Debbie is so excited to share with you and help you accomplish all your musical dreams and goals. She especially loves to work with children and adults with ADD and ADHD because she knows personally how music can positively impact and benefit the brain of one diagnosed with those conditions. In fact, ADD and ADHD are conditions that are viewed as a benefit when learning music, and strengthens your ability to learn and play an instrument. And conversely, learning a musical instrument actually increases your ability to focus and concentrate, translating to all other areas of your life as well.
Debbie has been playing guitar, ukulele, and clarinet for over years 30 and has been giving private lessons since
Debbie enjoys a variety of musical genres including, but not limited to; classical, jazz, folk, rock, pop, and children's music.
So, if you are looking to change your life or the life of your child, give them the gift of music by scheduling a lesson with Debbie right now. If you do not see a time on her schedule that is convenient for you, please contact her and she will make every effort to work with you to get you scheduled for a time that works best for you.
Debbie attended Suffolk College in Selden, New York, where she earned her degree in music performance as a clarinet and voice major. She continued her musical training in music performance at the prestigious Aaron Copeland School of Music at Queens College in Flushing, Queens, NY, where admittance is by audition only, also majoring in clarinet and voice. In addition to learning about musical performance, she also received vigorous training in music theory, sight reading, dictation, and ear training. All these skills are paramount to succeeding as an exceptional musician and musical instructor.
Although Debbie was trained as a classical clarinetist and vocalist, she was also a member of the guitar ensemble and played clarinet and alto sax in the jazz band, giving her experience in other genres of music as well beyond classical.
After graduating college, Debbie spent a few years playing her clarinet and alto sax in the orchestra for numerous musicals in theaters around the New York area. In addition, she also sang and played acoustic guitar during college with her band in local establishments around Long Island.
Most recently, before the birth of her children, Debbie was active in the musical program of her church in Cary, NC, where she sang in the choir, played clarinet in the chamber orchestra for special musical events, and played guitar and ukulele, and sang for the children's Sunday school. Activities she looks forward to returning to in the near future.
Currently, Debbie plays mostly for her own pleasure, and plays guitar and ukulele on a regular basis for her Wife and two young children, engaging them in fun singing and dancing musical time. "Music is a staple in our home and I hope to help you make it a staple in your home as well. Music truly brings people and families together!"
"Music is life. That is why our hearts have beats." ~ Cecily Morgan

I have played the violin for over 30 years and have been playing with various community orchestras and ensembles throughout my adult life, including the Windsor Community Orchestra, Orchestra Toronto (Ontario, Canada) and the Peninsula Symphony (San Mateo, California). I am a registered violin teacher with the Suzuki Association of the Americas and have received teacher training from the Southwestern Ontario Suzuki Institute and the Suzuki Institute of Montreal.
Over the last 8 years my focus
My background as a musician has truly played a major role in my appreciation for all genres of music and growth as a professional DJ.
There is no greater feeling than to know that I am able to touch others just by doing what I Love to do, playing music.
I've worked as a professional church choral music director, and have extensive experience teaching (in addition to piano) hand drums, drumset, singing, and beginning guitar -- all in a variety of genres.
I help singers achieve vocal freedom, connecting most directly to songs as well as their natural voice.
I perform around my local area in a variety of venues from upscale wine bars to weddings.
I live, teach, and play with passion -- and look forward to sharing that with every new student I meet.
