Susan is absolutely terrific! I am almost 40 and learning the piano has long been a bucket list item for me. So I searched for a teacher and I am delighted I found Susan. She is patient and clearly adjusts to my speed which has been good on some aspects, and slower on others. Work on occasion has prevented me from practicing as planned, and she is always very understanding. She is also as you would imagine, truly gifted in her own playing. It’s fun to watch a expert play songs the way she does! I would recommend Susan to anyone... young and old!Nov 4, 2018Verified

My daughter loves taking lessons with Susan. She is engaging and effective; my daughter is playing songs with both hands after a few lessons and looks forward to her lesson every week. Can't say enough great things about Susan.Oct 17, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have been teaching for over 30 years now. I always make sure I have a fair price. I always check what the going rate is for piano lessons.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When I first meet a new student I always ask them what they would like to accomplish from taking lessons. In my experience everyone is so different. Some students just want to have fun and learn their favorite songs as soon as they can and other students are more into the theory part of music and want it to be more structured. I teach everyone differently according to what they want.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I started to take private lessons when I was ten years old. I had five different teachers over 16 years. I also went to Bergen Community college for music. I have taught group classes and private lessons at Hale Piano and Organ for about 7 years. I also taught at Rockaway Music and Forte piano. I am currently teaching lessons at students home and teaching at Music and Arts. I also perform at the beautiful Lafayette theater in Suffern NY before the movies on Saturday nights.
