Chuck recently moved to Portland, Oregon from Gainesville, Florida, where he was a staple of the music teaching and performing community for more than 25 years. Originally from Chicago, Chuck completed his BA in Music History and Masters of Music (MM) at the University of Florida. Chuck became obsessed with The Beatles when he began piano lessons at age 12.

My name is Susan Scovil, and I can't wait to meet you! I recently retired from teaching after 27 years in the public schools. I taught high school Drama, Literature, and Writing, and I loved helping my students improve their skills and gain confidence.
