If you're an adult in a community orchestra and need help negotiating the repertoire, you want someone who's familiar with orchestra playing, who's encountered and solved the problems you're facing, and who can make difficult music easier.
Susie is a fantastic teacher for adult students! She's helped me so much with technique, while at the same time making sure I have a good balance of enjoyable songs to work on. She's very patient and has many innovative suggestions for areas that are challenging for me.
Susie has been teaching and playing professionally for over 20 years. She's played in symphonies, string quartets, opera and ballet orchestras, recordings, movie soundtracks, and advertising jingles.
She's worked with Paul Simon, Ella Fitzgerald, James Taylor, Johnny Cash, Luciano Pavarotti, Joshua Bell, and Yo-Yo Ma. She's taught privately, in schools, and as a coach for local youth orchestras.
Her teaching style is friendly and supportive and is focused on ensuring her students clearly understand the music and the physical actions necessary to play in the most relaxed and pleasing manner.
