    Welcome to Mozart Music & More. As my business name suggests, I present more than classical music in my teaching. I like to incorporate all types of music. I took my training as a classical pianist, however, over the years I enjoyed playing a variety of music. My philosophy is to learn to play for enjoyment, and in time for others. I believe in moving at a student's pace. I am very open to allowing my students play songs they enjoy, not what I would always expect them to learn. I incorporate technique and theory into my teaching because I want my students to be pianists, not just piano pla

I'm known for my patience, and I genuinely love what I do. I encourage students to ask questions and think about music and try things and not be afraid to make mistakes(!). All students learn the fundamental skills that will serve them in whatever style of music they play, and as they progress, some focus more on classical music, some popular, or jazz, or any combination.

    Most conventional piano instruction requires that a student must learn how to read music before being able to play. After many years of teaching, I've found that this is not a natural way to learn. Music is a language so my approach is similar to learning language, that is playing songs immediately as we learn to read music notation in small bits along the way. This accelerates the learning and keeps motivation high.

Prelude Music

Deborah Offenhauser · Phoenix, AZ

What or who inspired you to start teaching?

I started piano lessons around age 6. My first piano teacher gave lessons in our home to my older brothers. I was too young to take lessons then, or so the teacher thought. But I begged brother “Timmie” to teach me whatever he learned that week. My second piano instructor Mrs. Edith Buckhalter. Mrs. Buckhalter had one commandment “Only the classics shalt thou play.” I enjoyed everything I was given; theory, scales, chord progressions, early Hanon studies, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, etc. Dad would sneak home ragtime and movie themes that HE wanted to hear, so actually, I had a rather eclectic education in that sense! My CD “Dizzy Fingers” is dedicated to my dad, because it has such fun music that he always liked to hear me play, like “12th Street Rag” and “In the Mood,” which I use in my Show Concerts.

What do you love most about teaching?

Passing on knowledge about a subject dear to my heart (expressing Soul through music) brings great joy to me. I love to see shiny young faces that are eager to learn how to make music by reading notes, clapping rhythms, improvising and composing. It takes great patience and great love, for both the child and the music.

What can you say about your teaching styles?

The teaching methodology books I use for children have an accompanying CD, so the children learn their pieces, and then must play along correctly with the CD’s slower, and then “performance” tempo versions. This helps piano students learn to play as an ensemble, as some of the CD tracks might have an accompanying string quartet, or a jazz band, along with hearing their piano part being played. Because practicing piano can be a lonely vigil, having these accompanying tracks makes them feel part of something bigger than themselves. My “Viva Mexico” collection, geared for 1st and 2nd year students, has a piano accompaniment that makes the “single note” student parts just sparkle. As far as teaching various styles, my main focus is learning “the basics,” which includes the theory behind what the students are playing, along with learning to read notes and rhythms correctly. But, children do learn in their first lessons to play by ear, to transpose, and even to compose!
