Languages have always fascinated me. Music is a language, a universal one. Traveling a lot as a child, I studied French, German, and Twi when I had a semester studying dance & drumming in Ghana. Classical Spanish music is what originally hooked me on the piano and later the world of flamenco ensnared me. For 18 years, I produced the internationally touring Dance on Camera Festival, co-produced by Film at Lincoln Center. My experience teaching has been very rewarding as I always discover new worlds through my students.

I have a sensitive 6 year old girl who's shy of strangers and I was worried before the lesson that she might not participate. When Deirdre arrived my daughter immediately warmed to her and had a wonderful lesson. It was a special moment for her and for me as I am a lifelong pianist.
Very kind and understanding, great with kids.
Deirdre is perfect for us. She is timely, patient, thorough and very knowledgeable. Working with her has been a delight thus far.
