Hello! My name is Suzanne and I am a music educator residing in the beautiful state of New Jersey. I have a bachelor of arts in music education from Kean University and have several years of music teaching experience from public schools and private teaching.

As a teacher, I like to structure lessons as challenging but rewarding for my students. Each lesson is customized and structured for the success of each student. In other words, prepare to work hard but make incredible progress!

I hope to hear from you and assist you on your musical journey!
