Amber is a great Violin/Viola teacher and has been very knowledgeable and helpful! Amber hones in on where a student needs improvement in their playing and explains in a way that's easy to understand how to improve. Lessons are always fun and you can tell Amber enjoys teaching!

I've played brass instruments throughout High School and decided to attempt to teach myself the Violin after I graduated College. After almost a year of struggling I started to take lessons with Amber and she quickly helped me improved my form and technique with my left and right hand, obtain proper equipment, and provide exercises on what to practice to continue improving. I have noticed a drastic improvement since I started taking lessons with Amber and I highly recommend her as your Violin or Viola teacher!
Debra L. Ambler, PA

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.

Benjamin K. Glenside, PA

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 :)

He knows exactly what he is doing. He has shown me techniques my past 2 instructors failed to even attempt to show me. I'm not where I want to be but with him I am confident I'm on my way. Whether you're a beginner or advanced there's always room for improvement and Desmond will find it within that session. He is willing to work with you schedule and need I mention very affordable. You won't regret his classes!

Good product with excellent skills.

I've had the opportunity to work with Desmond upon forming his Vocal Ensemble choir, that had a Classical based foundation. As one of the Ensembles’ founding member I sang with the alto line, and found great joy and fulfillment in attending rehearsals.
Within six months of our choirs’ conception we had an enormous repertoire, and was touring, appearing on television, attending interviews with the media, performing in and winning competitions. Needless to say Desmond’s musical skills was a ray of sunlight, which came our way boosting our self confidence, while creating success for the group. I’m happy to have been a part of this group and am pleased to recommend Desmond to anyone who is serious and wants to learn music.

A nurturing teacher

I have worked with Desmond previously (as an accompanist for one of his choirs). Desmond is a very gentle, kind spirit and I believe he would be a very nurturing teacher for a voice student. He also has the advantage of having a very broad background in different styles of music, from reggae to jazz/pop to classical.

One of my many loves is singing and imparting my knowledge onto others. I have a BM in Voice from Mannes the New School for Music and a Masters in Voice Performance from Rice University. I recently worked for four months with Utah Opera and I have returned to my home, Philadelphia to Teach and Freelance. I believe that singing should be a liberating, supportive and universal experience and I hope to help my students grow as people as well as musicians.

Rachel is amazing! She is very affirming, yet pushes you to challenge yourself. She believes in your ability and teaches techniques that are suited to your unique vocal talent and ability. She also provides helpful explanations and works with you to find ways of understanding your body that make sense to you. Very intelligent and caring as well. If I still lived in the same city as her, I would be taking lessons with her now!

What Are the Best Songs to Sing to Show Off Your Vocal Range?
Many singing teachers agree that one of the most alarming things today is tuning in to television talent competitions and seeing nine-year-olds singing opera. Not only are the arias generally age-inappropriate, but they make vocal demands on the singer that often requires a training period longer than the child has been alive! Less publicly, but equally common, are singers who wrong-foot themselves with inappropriate repertoire at local singing competitions and music festivals. They might pick
