As one of my students you will be encouraged to learn some songs by ear and be creative by making up their own pieces. You will definitely need to learn to read notes, as well.

Each lesson will have you playing what you practiced during the week. And each lesson will also have you learn something to take home to perfect.

But most of all, I would hope you would leave with a sense of well-being, confidence and encouragement in the wonderful experience of making music on the piano.

I love for my students to perform as much as possible. We play in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and recitals. If a student comes up with a performance venue, we will certainly try to do it.

About Sue D.

I have been teaching for years with all ages of students. Piano lessons will include learning to read notes, ear training, theory and technique, creating your own music and learning to play the piano with others. The curriculum varies with individual needs. My philosophy is a little laid back but firm in keeping to the basics of music theory.

I can't wait to help you learn to play the piano!

I can't say enough good things about Sue! She is knowledgeable, patient, receptive to new ideas, has a great sense of humor.... She teaches both children and adults in her home (and more recently, on-line). I've been taking lessons with her for about 6 months, and have made a great deal of progress, as well as learning songs and techniques outside of my original "comfort zone".

Thank you, Sue!

My daughter has enjoyed piano lessons with Sue so much! She was exactly what we needed in music teacher. She makes it entertaining and fun. She even put together a piano concert for all her students!

My 10 year old twins are taking their classes together for now and it worked out pretty good this 1st class. We'll separate them if necessary but for now it's pretty cool.
They practice on separate pianos at home but play together on some songs.
Sue is fantastic. What a spitfire! Full of patience and kindness. She is quite knowledgeable. Really good with children. Sue is that favorite teacher we all had in school. My twins love her class and are really excited about taking piano lessons! What a hoot!

Sue is amazing! My daughter LOVES going to piano. She teaches to the child...my daughter like to play by ear and practice until she has memorized something. Sue is patient with her process and encourages and challenges her along the way!

Sue is a wonderful teacher. She has brought many of her students to play at Christmas for our annual bank Open House. It is a delight to see and hear the student's progress from year to year.

Experience

Piano Teacher
Sep 1964 - Present

Creation Studio

I began teaching piano in High School to pay for my lessons. My last year in High School I had the privilege of going to Germany and taking piano at Wiesbaden Conservatory. Through College (Abilene Christian) I accompanied voice lessons for my spending money. After I took my first pedagogy class, I was hooked-I have been teaching ever since.

Every year my students play their memorized pieces for a guild adjudicator who gives them a report card with their good performance praised and their weak points pointed out. This helps each student improve from year to year and feel pride in their pianistic achievements!
