What People Say About Working With Debra:

"There is no other mind like Debra's. She will get the best out of you and help you achieve your desired goal. I was brought to speed in no time and in a very easy-to-learn way on how to write lyrics. I would recommend Debra in a heartbeat. She has given me the inspiration, motivation and dedication to want to become a better wordsmith as it relates to the art of songwriting. In fact, I communicate differently today thanks to her and I've learned more about myself than I could have every imagined in the short time we've worked together. Thank goodness it's just the beginning! Debra knows her stuff" --B.M.

"Thanks for being a FABULOSO teacher! I was thinking to myself the other day... what if I hadn't randomly googled 'Songwriting classes Toronto' in January or whenever it was... WHERE WOULD I HAVE BEEN? WHO WOULD I HAVE BEEN? Thank you thank you thank you!!! It has been an absolute joy!!!" —C.C.

"You're clearing all the clouds away from my mind!" —C.T.

"In a short span of time I have learned how to figure out what key my song is in, figure out bass notes, chord progressions, and then how to make each section sound rhythmic and different. Because I'm an 'instant results' kind of person, Debra has made learning everything fun because I automatically started to see improvements on my playing and overall knowledge of the piano. Before Debra I felt that the piano was where my songs went to die, now it's where they go to grow. I know that seems kind of dramatic, but it's the only way I can describe it!" —L.T. 

“I couldn’t believe how empowered Debra made me feel…within an hour she was unblocking things that had been blocked since childhood.” —J.B.

"You gave me a lot to think about and provoked some new ways of thinking re: songwriting and my own efforts that I didn't expect. In an odd way it freed me up to write what I like, versus what I imagine people want to hear." —M.D.

“You break it down for me in a way that’s perfect for my style of learning.” —P.R.

"Thank you so much for all of your help with theory last night...and as always, thank you for your encouragement, I'm really happy you're hearing some good things in my songwriting!" —L.L.

"Again, I just wanted to thank-you for such an inspiring day yesterday! I had a really good time and you've definitely provided the tools that will help in getting the wheels spinning for all my unfinished songs!"—L.V.

“Thank you so much for all you do…I hope we get to work together again in the near future.” —Kevin J. Collins, Executive Director, Friends of We Care Foundation Inc.
