My son was on a waiting list for a year for piano lessons with Debi Stevenson. We were just about to look for another teacher when we finally got the call, and we know now how lucky we are we waited. He's excelled far beyond our expectations, loving it from day one. Debi holds the perfect characteristics for a teacher: gracious and kind; talented and inspiring. She motivates her kids through many creative means, keeping them excited during lessons and assigning challenging, kid-focused projects that keep them inspired all year long. My son practices on his own, never having to be told. Debi provided him a foundation for learning and a love of music that has already -- in just two years -- moved him on to other instruments and to composing music on his own. She's a great teacher.
