About Deborah

Hi, My name is Deborah Russell. I have been teaching piano at Music & Arts since 2014. I took piano lessons from my mom and aunt (who are both talented piano teachers and performers) as well as from a very talented concert pianist for my entire childhood all the way through high school. I participated in every music program including choral in all grades through 12. I also participated in all music programs available at my church and played piano at my church as a teenager into adulthood.

I attended both BYU Hawaii and BYU Idaho and graduated in 2000. I studied Elementary Education with a minor and emphasis in music. I took piano lessons all through college from great professors and tried out to be in the various music programs. I was in piano recitals every semester. After college I again took piano lessons for years and have taught privately for 15 years and have hundreds of past students. For the last five years I have taught piano lessons at Millenium Kids Creative Learning Center where I have a private piano studio and I also teach all of their music classes as well.

I love teaching piano and I teach the lesson and theory books from the Alfred series. I also teach technique and have students additionally learn popular Disney, pop/rock songs, classical pieces from the masters, as well as New Age and anything else they want to learn. I have a huge library of music I can share including holiday music. I specialize in teaching very young children, but I teach all the way into advanced. I can teach all the great classcal pieces from Bach, Mozart etc... and I also love to have kids learn Hannon as well as Czerny exercises.
