Hi, there! My name is Debbie and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 1997 and have loved helping my students learn an amazing musical skill, show them how fun it can be, and show them how playing an instrument can be an extremely rewarding experience.
I attended Suffolk College in New York, earning a degree in Music Performance for Voice and Clarinet and I attended the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College where I also studied voice, clarinet, saxophone and guitar.
I have been playing the guitar, clarinet and Ukulele for 32 years and have played the Alto sax for 20 years. I currently play guitar and clarinet at my church whenever the opportunity presents and I skill practice my own skills daily as there is never truly an end to the learning. There is always somewhere to grow.
I'm an outgoing, lighthearted, positive, and fun person and my teaching style is one in which I exude patience, understanding and teach at each individual learners pace. I utilize a positive reward style in my teaching and fully embrace, and actually encourage, making mistakes because this is truly the only way to learn a solid skill.
Please reach out to me with any questions you have about my lessons, my teaching style, or my schedule. I look forward to helping you reach your goals! Sincerely, Debbie F.
