    Susan takes great pride in her students’ accomplishments. She motivates them to improve their playing and technique while instilling a strong appreciation for music. She takes time to understand a student’s strengths and weaknesses to create a successful learning experience. She has been instrumental in elevating my daughter’s piano playing and performance.

    At this time, my rate is $125 per hour, in my home studio or online . Payment is usually made for blocks of 10 lessons at a time, though I will also offer a monthly payment plan. All my students, regardless of age are expected to take a minimum of 40 one-hour lessons per year.

    I began teaching music at the age of 16 at a summer camp, and then continued my journey as a piano pedagogue during graduate school and after.

    All ages, all levels. At present time, only accepting intermediate to advanced level students who know how to read music and have had at least two to five years of prior instruction.

    My studio recital-parties are always fun and entertaining for students and their families and friends.

    I enjoy giving MasterClasses and Performance Workshops as well  

    Professionally, I am an experienced concert artist, and have soloed with orchestras and performed internationally.

    I am looking for dedicated students of piano, who are motivated to practice regularly and really improve their skill level and appreciation of classical piano music.
