I started teaching because I have a passion for teaching, as well as helping students reach their true potential. I not only teach the students looking to learn their craft, but also those looking to better their ability. My goal is to impart my knowledge and love of music, theater and speech to all of my students.

I have been a professional Actress, Show Singer, Commercial Voice-Over Artist and Teacher for the past 25 years in the Bay Area. I have a BA in Theater Arts from University of Minnesota, as well as from San Jose State University. I have studied Theater, Dance, Music, and Mime at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. I have 30 units in "Early Childhood and Development" from DeAnza College in San Jose, CA.

I am also a member of the AFTRA, SAG and EQUITY unions.

Susan is very sweet and easy to work with. My son is so excited to learn different techniques to improve his vocal skills. We can't wait for his next lesson.

Ms. Susan is warm, encouraging and knowledgable. My son looks forward to his lessons and enjoys doing the follow up exercises. This has been well-worth the investment!

Susan is an amazing instructor! She started out with some beginning material but quickly increased the difficulty as she gauged my experience. She came to my home and we started right away. My 3 month old daughter was asleep in her nursery and didn't make a peep. The convenience of her coming to my home so that I can do something for fun as a new mom is so amazing! I feel like I've known her forever! I'm looking forward to her sending me songs that she thinks will sound good with my voice! I'm so excited for Lesson #2!

The Stars explain it all, she's very enthusiastic about teaching and loves to get to know you better which is really great, and she gives you songs that are recent that she thinks you should sing!
