As the award winning pianist with doctorate in piano performance, I have performed at several different nations in the world and taught at Piano Academy and a few universities over 25 years teaching from the beginners to doctorate/professional pianists. With many years of experience as a performer and piano educator, my piano lessons are customized and catered to each student's learning style and goals for the most optimal learning experience. While they will LOVE to play the piano music, they will also be building a great foundation of piano technique, music theory and performances. I teach classical music, traditional/contemporary worship songs with improvisation and accompanying. Through my years of teaching, my students have won many competitions and earned highest scores at the state piano exams and pursued music as their profession. I look forward to working with you to create the MOST BEAUTIFUL MUSIC!

I am an adult learner and I have taken lessons with Deborah for almost a year and a half now. I started as a complete beginner, and with a lot of time, dedication, encouragement, and patience (both from her and myself), my skill level has improved greatly. She teaches you the technical aspect of playing piano while also teaching the creative aspect. She shows you how to play with passion. The best teachers have the experience, passion, and strong communication & listening skills. That being said, I highly recommend Dr. Deborah to anyone interested in playing piano, regardless of skill level.

Deborah is such a wonderful teacher. She is warm, caring, encouraging, resourceful, positive, and effective in every way of her teaching. No matter what issues or technical problems that I have, Deborah has just the right solutions for me. I was having difficulty with technical requirement for a piano examination. With her help, I am gaining competence and confidence in my piano playing week by week. Deborah is a powerful teacher, and I always feel renewed and empowered (toward piano learning) at the end of each lesson. If you are looking for a piano teacher, I recommend that you give Deborah a try.

I started taking piano lessons as an adult for the first time a few months ago. I'm really anxious and self-conscious about mistakes, but Deborah makes it feel totally okay and is extremely encouraging. She naturally adjusts to my learning speed and takes care to spend extra time when I struggle with something. I especially enjoy learning music theory (and even music appreciation!) alongside learning to play, it makes for a very complete and well-rounded learning experience. Deborah makes learning comfortable and fun, if you're looking for a teacher who is not only passionate about piano but also about their students, then I couldn't recommend her more!

Elite Piano Academy
As the founder of the Elite Piano Academy, I have many years of teaching experience, including at the university level. I've instructed classes at the University of Michigan, North Eastern University, and Arizona State University, where I also taught private lessons to music majors while working on my Doctorate in Piano Performance. I've had the pleasure of teaching children of all ages, young adults, college students, music majors, professional pianists, competition winners, and passionate music lovers. I am also a concert pianist and have performed in the U.S., Korea, and Europe. Making music is my greatest passion. Through my rich experience as a performer, I train my piano students to not only have excellent technique and a great knowledge base, but to also be wonderful, confident, and passionate performers who connect with their audience through the magnificent beauty of piano music.
