*** Lesson Details ***
As a person I am laid-back, I take the same attitude toward teaching, however I am strict when it comes to getting work done & getting it done well. For piano I use the Alfred series. After 3-6 months I would want my student to have learned the basics of rhythm & note identification. For singers breathing technique as well.

My children love her, she is very kind, helpful, and responsive to questions.
Ms. Susanna is very professional and attentive. She is patient and kind. I am happy to be having my lessons with her.
Great Voice Instructor!
I have been taking lessons with Susanna for close to 6 months and she has been a great teacher. I feel a lot more confident in my singing ability and I look forward to each lesson. I learn something new everytime. I am completely new to singing and she makes sure that you are comfortable in the environment and caters to your needs and what you would like to work on.
Great instructor. She actually shows interest in her students and I love that about her. I've learned so much after a short period of time.
The piano lesson is for my daughter Laetitia. I never stayed with her when she had her piano class so I can't make any comment on Susanna.So far my daughter is still interested on playing piano and she practice is every day with fun. Susanna told my husband that she will buy some new music book for her so I guess Laetitia really enjoy her piano class.
I like Susanna's patient, yet firm, demeanor. She expects my child to succeed without 'punishing' her when she makes a mistake. She praises her--which my child needs. She doesn't make her feel bad when she makes a mistake. I have seen teachers do this and it breaks a child's spirit. Thank you Susanna for being firm yet compassionate. My child is totally comfortable with you.+ Read More
