Debra has enjoyed teaching piano to children since 1993.  Debra began her Suzuki training at the Colorado Suzuki Institute in 1997 on flute. In subsequent years, she had the pleasure of studying Suzuki piano with Peggy Swingle in Seattle, WA. Teaching music in the Suzuki method has come very naturally to Debra through humor, love for the child, love of music, and a strong belief in Suzuki’s vision that “Perhaps it will be music that will save the world”.

Debra received a BA in Psychology from Burlington College in VT in 1987 and graduate coursework in music education in 1991-92.  After 15 years in Seattle, Debra returned to Vermont in 2011 and has re-grown a thriving piano studio. Aside from teaching and enjoying a musical life, Debra enjoys cycling, hiking, and eating to heal.
