I've been teaching cello for over 27 years and my students have gone on to play in youth orchestras, attend PMEA and ASTA events or go to college as a music major. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to improve your playing skills and as time goes on you'll be able to play at a more advanced level. I specialize in Traditional Classical violin, typically use Essential Elements 2000, Samuel Applebaum methods, Suzuki methods and traditional scales and etude books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Susanna is an excellent instructor! I've been with her for a year as an adult beginner and learned a great deal. She is patient and supportive -- exactly what you need in an instructor. She also has a great sense of humor lined with kindness, which helps when you create some truly tragic notes on your violin.

Do you want to play classical piano music: Bach, Mozart, Beethoven? You are in the right place!

I choose and adapt songs according to the age, interests, goals, and skills of the students. I also use the songs to teach different musical concepts: intervals, progressions, scales, chords. Every student is different, so I don't use any specific method.

También disponible la clase en español.

Laura had such a welcoming presence and didn’t make me feel bad about my voice at all, she made me feel way more confident. I am a beginner and I noticed an instant change in my voice, a good change. Laura also introduced me to a new part of my voice I didn’t know existed so I would definitely recommend her to anyone I meet.
