Susan has been a great teacher for my girls. My yountest started learning piano with Susan and she really enjoyed the themed recitals and fun activities that Susan incorporated into her teaching to keep her engaged. My oldest started with Susan after several years of learning Piano and Susan has really challenged her to learn pieces and theory that are outside her comfort zone. Susan also involves her in the process when picking new pieces.”
