" I have two sons who had lost interest in pursuing their piano lessons. With Susan's exceptional patience, talent, and dedication, my sons have re-discovered this beautiful instrument. She was attentive to their needs and selected pieces to amuse and inspire their senses, all the while teaching them new skills and setting new objectives. She set realistic and attainable goals for each child." ~ T. Kia
