Suzan is thoroughly knowledgable about music theory and composition and movement. Her piano skills are excellent especially when seen in the arena of jazz improve composition on the fly with a group of professionals.

Learning the violin from me can include violin fundamentals such as bow use and finger placement, reading music notation, lead sheets, and playing by ear. All of these are skills that come into play at different times depending on what your goals are. A combination of these skills will give you a foundation of music knowledge that will serve you regardless of what style of music you want to play. Specific styles I've worked with are: Classical, Irish, Bluegrass, Rock and Symphonic Metal.
I tailor lessons to my students goals. I emphasize technique fundamentals, and help students apply the techniques they learn toward music t
In addition to playing violin, I write and arrange music. My song "The Burning Plain" won a national award for songwriting. If writing songs is your goal I can help you apply music theory concepts is ways that will make your songs stand out.

Each lesson is customized to your learning style and different for everyone depending on what you want to learn. Most of my students like to learn from scratch which would include the following:
In the first 3 lessons you will learn basic guitar fundamentals, basic 1-4-5 song progressions (the stuff that 85% of all music we listen to is made up of), left hand / right hand coordination, picking techniques, how to strum, mute, & play notes on the guitar.
We can play as a band too. When you are ready, I love to bring out the drum or backing tracks to your favorite artists songs while you play guitar and I play what your not, giving you the feel of a live group
Genres include Acoustic, Blues, Country, R&B, Funk, Latin, Jazz, Rock, Pop and more.

In my lessons I emphasize creativity because this approach helps students develop a more complete understanding of music. I will help you build a strong foundation in technique and improvisational skills so that you can see real, measurable progress in your playing and your confidence level.
Ultimately, while my students do learn to perform specific pieces of music, they also learn how to sit down at a piano and simply play, expressing themselves through music in a natural way that lends itself to playing with other musicians, or for song writing.
Lessons can be given from the Melody in Movement Studios at 811 SE Main St, 97202, part of Active Space LLC.
