Hello!! My name is Ms. Susan and I have taught piano for over 8 years in the North County area. I live in La Costa and teach from Cardiff to San Marcos. I travel to your home. My lessons include repertoire, theory, sight playing, ear training, technigue, and music history (not all in the same lesson however). My students start at 6 years old and progress to adults. I like to play a lot of games with my students and my goal is to make lessons fun and educational. My lessons range from 30 minutes to 6o minutes, depending on the student's ability.
I have played piano for 25 years plus, and went back to school after my twins graduated from HS for a degree in music. I am trained as an attorney but decided to switch careers for a variety of reasons.
I love meeting new students teaching them how to read music and how to play piano. It is a skill every one should have! I hold 3 recitals a year and it is wonderful fun to hear everyone play and share their accomplishments.

After introductions, I like to chat with my new student for a few minutes about their likes and disklikes, favorite activites, etc. I want to know why they want to learn piano. I try to assess how they learn best (visual auditory kinesthetic or a combination) by asking directed questions and observing their responses. I want to get to know my new student and put him/her at ease.
