Debbie started playing musical instruments at 7 years of age. Having studied flute with Margaret Crawford and Gerhard Mallon, and piano with Betty Vergara, she graduated from the Queensland Conservatorium in 1988 with High Distinctions in both instruments. She has since established a name as one of the most respected and dedicated flute teachers in Brisbane and has taught at many of the leading private schools.
Debbie enjoys teaching flute and piano to children aged 5 and over, as well as adults. Debbie’s aim is to develop each person’s potential to express themselves through music, with music that appeals to the student. There are opportunities to perform at eisteddfods and concerts throughout the year if desired, and Debbie is happy to help with school band pieces if needed.
Debbie welcomes enquiries for flute or piano lessons and has a number of loan flutes available, including flutes for small children. Piano students do not need to have a piano initially, but can learn on a keyboard and keyboard hire is available. The studio is air conditioned.
