About Suzette

I started taking piano lessons when I was 4 and then learned the clarinet and played in the band in middle school. In high school I started playing the viola in the orchestra while still playing in the band. I had the best of all music worlds! In college I played in many school and community orchestras in places like Carnegie Recital Hall and even with the NY Philharmonic Orchestra! Orchestral and Chamber Music are my forte. I have been a string orchestra conductor for 10 years and love to put on a show to be remembered. My students have played at various day cares, nursing homes and shopping malls. We were even on the local Channel 12 News! *** Lesson Details *** A good foundation and a thorough knowledge of the basics will help you get the most out of your instrument. We ...

Our daughter loves Mrs. Suzette R. We love how Mrs. Suzette R. pushes our daughter to improve and gives her the freedom to explore the music within her through the violin. She is patient and full of joy. It's a pleasure to know her and welcome her into our home.

Excellent Teacher

Mrs. Rivera gave my son private cello lessons every Saturday morning for several months. She always arrived on time and was always full of energy. Mrs. Rivera made sure that he understood the material and gave him several helpful tips. He did very well in his music classes. Her energy is contagious. My daughter would attend my sons lessons and it peaked her interest to the point where she is now playing the violin. Mrs. Rivera is a great teacher, she is patient, punctual and personable. You won't be disappointed.

Mary is wonderfully patient and convivial. I'm pretty much a beginner at lessons, and she's found a way to explain to me technique exercises such that each week, my body understands more, and I feel progress. In responding to my singing, she has not been a perfection czar -- she zeroes in on the most important concern at the moment. While she's extremely knowledgeable about and experienced in musical theater, she can help singers with pop as well. I'm enjoying our lessons. She has boosted my confidence while it's quite evident how much I should improve. Her pricing is also reasonable -- no small thing.

Drum · In home
I've been studying with Karl for over two years now. I'd taken lessons from two other teachers before, and I learned more in one lesson with Karl, than in three lessons from either of them. He guides students in developing their own styles, and at the same time, teaches them how to play with proper technique. I will be auditioning for county band on snare drum, and Karl had started preparing me for the audition months ago. All in all, anyone who takes lessons from Karl will not be disappointed.

Drum · In studio
I have studied with Karl for the past 3 years. While studying with him I have become much more versatile in my playing. Karl stresses the importance of practicing and pushes one to achieve their greatest potential. If you are struggling with a certain rudiment or concept he will break it down into simpler terms that are easy to understand and build upon. It has been a great experience studying drum set with Him.
