Debra Richardson-Edge is a private piano teacher in Havelock and has run a lively studio for over 30 years. She finds nurturing students' musicaldevelopment in solo and ensemble piano music to be very fulfilling.
Singing has been a harmonious thread running through Debra's life, whether in choirs (from Trinity United in Hastings as a girl to her present membership in Westben Festival Chorus), ensembles or as a soloist. Her interests lean toward opera, art songs, and music theatre. Performing several music theatre roles on the Westben stage has been a highlight of her life.
Debra's curiosity to explore music from both a pedagogical and a performance perspective has led to continued music studies throughout her life. The musical interweaving of her life's work and her life's passion rewards Debra immensely and she feels very fortunate indeed.
Ardent about keeping the arts vibrant and viable in our community, Debra has enjoyed helping Westben through involvement on its Board, committees and as a volunteer.
