Overview

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!

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.

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.

Mrs. Sue is a very patient and fun teacher. She makes sure her students learn the basics of music in a simple way.
