Thank you so much for being such a great piano teacher! You have really inspired me to want to keep up playing the piano!

Our son, Ken, has been enjoying piano lessons with Debra Avalos for more than four years. Even though we live more than 15 miles away from her, we continue to make the weekly trek to her studio. It's a pleasure to watch Debra's caring and patient teaching style.

Elk Grove, CA

Our family has been taking piano lessons from Mrs. Avalos for 5 years. Three out of four of our children are her piano students. She is very gentle and patient with our sometimes squirmy kids:). My younger children especially appreciate the toys and art supplies she has available to play with while they wait for their older siblings to have their lessons. I'm very pleased with what competent piano players they have become. In fact, they have inspired me! I started taking piano for myself with Deborah this year and I am loving it!
