What Students / Families Say?


Working with Susan has been a cooperative experience — she allows me to move at my own pace without any pressure. My enjoyment of listening to music has also been enhanced since studying with Susan, and I am so amazed at how quickly I progress!

Strong Teaching Skills

Two Sisters, Long-Term Students

Taking lessons with Susan has been a wonderful experience for our girls, who now both play very well. That she is able to keep our two kids, who are very different in age/personality, each engaged & interested in piano, is a testament to her strong teaching skills and flexible musical approach.

About Lessons …

Skillful and Fun

Beginner Adult Student

As a retired professional, I’m a particularly intense person and always strive for my personal best. I honestly did not know how I would do or even  what to expect. All my concerns have been allayed.

About Susan …

What is most distinct our time together  is her humor!, which, frankly, is what keeps me coming back! Each lesson is such a fun experience and I’m amazed at the progress I make in such short periods of time. I appreciate that playing piano is both a mental as well as a physical challenge and this feels like a healthy activity for me.

Long Time Experienced Student

Susan doesn’t make me feel pressured, yet is skillful in helping me advance at a pace I am comfortable with. I’ve studied with Susan for the past six years. I had taken for same amount of time many years ago as a child, and was eager to return to the piano. I highly recommend her!

Love and appreciation for music, I believe, will only strengthen as time goes by.
