Meet Deb Mackenzie

  • Master of Music/Piano Performance and Pedagogy

My name is Deb MacKenzie, and I teach in the Music Department at Ripon College, as well as accompany all ensembles, juries and recitals. I have degrees from the University of Iowa (B.M. Music/Music Therapy) and UW-Madison (M.M. Piano Performance and Pedagogy). I enjoy watching student progress in their fields of study, and love watching their growth. I am married with four children, a son-in-law and a grandson.
