Susan is not only an accomplished musician, but she is also an amazing teacher and mentor. She elevated my daughter’s musicianship and helped her find her true potential as a classical pianist. My daughter’s success as a competitive pianist is due to Susan’s instruction, encouragement, and guidance. When we started lessons with Susan, we struck gold!

Susan is an experienced concert pianist with world-class expertise in the instrument, yet she is also an approachable educator + coach who has done a great deal to advance my technique and interpretation. I’m glad to have found her. Advanced pianists will be pleased to find someone who can help raise their game even further, but regardless of your skill level, I don’t think you’ll regret signing up with her.

Susan was a PERFECT match for me. I really hate leaving her great knowledge. She has poured out to me her expert knowledge. Unfortunately, I am unable to continue. Susan is a teaching jewel to be cherished.

An experienced educator specializing in student-focused lessons. Not every method will work for every student, therefore I will seek to customize the lessons to the students. My goal is to guide the students in reaching their goals and helping them enjoy the process. My skill areas are classical training, music theory, sight-reading, playing with expression, rhythms, chords and keys, accompanying, church music, error correction, and proper positioning. All ages and skill levels are welcome. Questions are welcome.

Looking for experience? Customized lessons? Encouraging feedback? Positive error correction? With a wide range of teaching experiences and a love of education, I am always searching for the best methods for my students. Seeking the best way to guide my students began with my education d

Gwen is a fantastic teacher! Several years ago, my then 3rd grader joined Gwen's homeschool one day a week for science, PE, field trips and recorder lessons. My daughter had a fabulous time! Gwen really is one of the best, most well-rounded homeschool teachers I know and is capable of integrating beyond these specific subjects she teaches. She really listens to your goals, concerns and needs and is creative in coming up with solutions... All so your child can learn most effectively!

Gwen did a fantastic job of teaching my struggling writer annotating literature and writing. She answered all of his questions, and gave advice when he struggled to understand the content. Her consistently positive attitude and outlook was a real encouragement to him.

"I met Lori at a recent voice competition where she was the designated pianist for my division. She rehearsed patiently, returned texts promptly, and kept a steady, cheerful attitude through two days surrounded by stressed-out singers. As for her playing, she performed challenging repertoire with grace and disciplined understatement that made it clear she was there to help us shine. It's hard for me to overstate just how good an accompanist she is."
