Debra Lee, Piano, Vocal
"I love teaching and providing a supportive and creative environment where my students have fun learning to make music. I work with students at their own pace to make their musical experience both enjoyable and educational. My students look forward to their lessons, and our time together each week passes by quickly!"

Teacher, pianist, singer, songwriter, performing and recording artist, Debra Lee is a West Chester University graduate, and  a certified Voiceworks™ Associate for the

She is knowledgeable about basic vocal physiology and health.   She has taught and coached aspiring young singers, choral singers, hobbyists and professional singers.  She is effective in teaching techniques for everything from pitch correction to optimal vocal health, relaxation and performance techniques for both on stage and in the recording studio.  Ms. Lee's  students and vocal clients have included children as young as 5 to award winning recording artists. 

A classically trained pianist, Ms. Debra is a member of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) and continues ongoing piano pedagogy studies to keep current  and fresh in her approach to teaching piano.  Ms. Lee's  piano teachers and mentors have included the late Mary Theresa Soper, and Marvin Blickenstaff, both recognized classical  pianists, educators, and pedagogues.  She is skilled in playing classical music, and as an accompanist for musical theater and pop music .  She has developed a method for teaching current Pop-style piano, vocal, and songwriting to pianists and vocalists, through ear development, music theory and chord structure.

She performs  piano-keyboard in her singer-songwriter duo, Lyra Project, and also performs professionally  at  events,  singing jazz standards with a jazz trio, and  playing piano in a piano/flute instrumental duo.  She also performs regularly with the SouthRidge Band of First Presbyterian Church in Ambler PA.    Ms. Debra  also sings professionally as a  background vocalist for recording artists at Boffo Recording Studio.
