  • Applegate Music Studio

    Applegate Music Studio

    Phoenix, AZ · Terry Smith

    Most 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. Since music is a language, I pattern my teaching to learning language, that is playing great songs immediately as we learn to read music notation separately. These two learning paths come together after a few months when the student is ready. The result is that the student learns faster and is much more motivated because they play great songs right away. I use many approaches to acheive this learning experienc

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!
