As my first singing teacher ever I can say it was money well-spent. Very educated in the craft and motivational to help get you out of your comfort zone. Looking forward to taking in-person lessons with the same teacher when it becomes safer to do so.

Suzanne is a patient and kind teacher, with an exquisite voice herself. My daughter has learned much about controlling her voice, and is being exposed to new kinds of music. Suzanne deserves the highest rating for a voice instructor.

Mrs. Galer’s level of instruction is purely professional and she gently coaxes the best out of her student. Always with praise to instill confidence in her student capabilities.
