At the age of 12, I discovered what an amazing and versatile instrument the piano can be, and have been studying it, as well as eventually teaching others about its possibilities, ever since. I have had the privilege of playing for a variety or groups and soloists, as lead pianist for many musicals with many different theater groups, playing worship music for my church, accompanying choirs from professional through high school groups, going to various music festivals, playing with orchestras and in professional bands and much, much more! I want to share this wealth of knowledge and experience with my students, and help them succeed in whatever type of music they most enjoy playing.
I "study" each student and adjust my teaching style to fit their learning style. I make sure my students know the basics of note reading, rhythm and theory, and then expand the instruction to include whatever most inspires them; classics, Christian, jazz, improvisation, playing by chord or anything else. I set a very specific practice plan for each student every week, so that - with regular and precise practice at home - each student can achieve great results.
Susanne should be a concert pianist. If you have been a student of hers consider yourself lucky.
