What would I study?
Lessons are tailored to each student's individual goals and learning style, although Deborah always emphasizes musical understanding and creativity with the support of a comfortable technique. In addition to learning repertoire, lessons include age appropriate note-reading activities and games so the student will be able to read music as well as play violin. Deborah mostly teaches classical music, but enjoys mixing in other genres according to the student’s interests and encourages musical exploration.
What is Deborah’s experience?
A dedicated educator, Deborah has over a decade of violin teaching experience. She first started teaching in her early high school years in Illinois, but decided to gain more training during college before continuing teaching. After finishing her master’s degree, she returned to NYC and has been teaching ever since through various programs and privately, both in one-to-one lessons and group classes.

Who does Deborah teach?
Deborah accepts students of all levels, aged three through adult.
How do lessons work?
Individual private lessons meet once per week and are 30-minutes, 45-minutes, or 60-minutes in length. Additionally, Deborah hosts online monthly performance classes according to student's age and level to hone performance and note-reading skills. Formal student recitals are usually offered twice per academic year.
“My son has worked with Deborah for the past 6 years. I cannot recommend her enough as a violin teacher for all students. She is an incredibly dedicated, caring, and patient teacher. Deborah has an adaptive method and was able to change gears whenever he needed it, keeping him engaged and motivated through the years. He has made tremendous progress, guided by Deborah’s teaching skills as well as impeccable technique. We enjoyed attending her concerts as well! Such an inspiration. Deborah is an amazing teacher with a true passion for music.” ~M. Liang
