**Will be leaving for maternity leave in October 2017, but am willing to accept summer students, online lessons, or beginners***

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

· Trumpet · Online 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!
