From a young child experiencing his first piano lesson, to a retired professional seeking new experiences (or anyone in between), I’ve taught a wide array of students at different stages in their lives (and mine).

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

"Under your guidance, Sophie-Anna has developed a love and appreciation for piano playing, which I believe will only strengthen as time goes by. For this I am truly indebted to you and sincerely Thank You. Warmest wishes."
"Working with Susan has been a cooperative experience. What is most distinct in our time together is her humor, which, frankly, is what keeps me coming back! Each lesson is such a fun experience. I appreciate that playing the piano is both a mental as well as a physical challenge and this feels like a healthy activity for me."
"As a retired professional, I honestly did not know how I would do in piano lessons or even what to expect. All my concerns have been allayed. Susan allows me to move at my own pace without any pressure. My enjoyment of listening to music has also been enhanced since taking lessons with Susan, and I am so amazed at how quickly I progress in such a short period of time!"
"I highly recommend Susan for piano study! She is patient, fun, knowledgeable and a very experienced teacher (30+ years). I so value her competence and easy-going manner, both of which have contributed to the degree of success and progress I’ve made under her instruction. I'm proud to say that after seven years with Susan, I am playing at a surprisingly high level and am happily planning on many more years of piano lessons with her. Thank you, Susan."
