Overview

I graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Music Education (vocal emphasis) and a trumpet performance minor. I then completed my Masters in Vocal Pedagogy in December of 2015. Right now I am teaching K-8 General music and 5-8th grade band and Chorus. I have been a private studio instructor for the past 6 years.

If you are pursuing voice I can teach you Classical operatic singing, Broadway style, or Art Songs (Lieder in French, German and Italian.)

If you are pursuing trumpet I can enhance your skills whether you are just beginning or are already an intermediate player.

*** Lesson Details ***
I prefer to work with children and female students! (No adult males)

I am a teacher that helps you reach whatever goals you set for yourself. You tell me what you want to accomplish and I will work together with you to make it happen. I will create a curriculum according your personal needs and skill level.

If you are taking lessons with me you will learn lots of music theory and music history. I want you to understand the style and reasoning behind each piece of music you play.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The in studio lessons are taught in the living room which includes a piano (88 key weighted), books, and seating. Student must provide own trumpet. Parking is in guest spaces.

The Elementary School lessons are taught in a classroom which includes an upright piano, books, & seating. Student must provide own trumpet. Parking is in lot.

*** Specialties ***
German Lieder and Italian Arias

Susannah was wonderful. She was patient, nurturing, and knowledgeable as she worked with my 10 year old son. Susannah provided age appropriate explanations that will help my son build a strong musical foundation as he learns the trumpet. We look forward to more lessons with her!

For a first-time lesson. She was very good at going slow and making sure he understood what she was talking about.
