The accordion I took 9 years of lessons on as a kid!

Still have it too! My daddy bought it in a pawn shop.

*

Ron was my duet partner for

Kiwanis Music Festival competitions.

*

Our teacher RONNIE MORRIS entered us.

We both competed solo as well as duet.

I was also part of an accordion quartet.,

and an accordion orchestra. 

We performed on “Night of the Stars”

@ The Jubilee Auditorium

in Edmonton, AB in 1966.

Mr. MORRIS was our wonderful band director.

*

We were a 50 piece accordion band!!

It must be in the Guiness book of world records?

*

My first part time job... summer before grade 12

was teaching little kids how to play the accordion.

The music school was called Harmony Kids.

*

The man in charge of the music school

left 2 weeks after hiring me, so guess who became the

bookkeeper, lesson scheduler, manager?

*

1992 my life came full circle back to teaching music,

and I love every minute with each of my students.

Thanks for stopping by my website! .....  Debra

Student Testimonials:

Debra’s a great teacher. She is really good on technique,

which is really important for progress in the long run.

Also, she plays every style there is, which is really good

if you are interested in different styles.

Debra Peters has been an instrumental musical influence on both my children.

My kids began lessons with Debra at an early age (5) and continue to be driven

by the love of music to play piano, now 5 and 8 years later. My children each had

a different learning style as one was inspired to play by sound and the other

preferred sight reading.  Debra was able to modify lessons to meet the needs of

both kids, first instilling the love of music through preferences for method and type

of music, then doubling back around to the more challenging areas to ensure

complete and comprehensive training once they were “hooked”.

I’m so grateful to Debra for her excellent teaching skills and the gift

of musical creativity that will be in my children’s lives forever!
