Singing Lessons

Suzanne was absolutely amazing and very professional and consistent. She was thorough and gave me lessons to strengthen my vocal cords, she gave me homework (things I can do when I’m home) in order to perfect my tool. She is a lady that knows her business of teaching others. I would highly recommend her to anyone with a strong desire to sing to a higher level of performance.

Piano Lessons

I hired Suzanne to teach me and my kids how to play the piano. She has thus far been a wonderful teacher. I've been very impressed with how she's managed my 6 and 8 year old through zoom meetings and how she's made virtual learning of the piano seamless. She's adaptive to each of our learning styles and has found the right balance of encouragement and constructive criticism to help us learn. We have very much enjoyed our lessons -- even my kids who were hesitant to take the lessons have found them enjoyable and look forward to them. I highly recommend her.

Singing Lessons

She is very professional and know exactly what she’s doing. Very nice, so patient. Because of her I can say I’ve learn the proper way of breathing Techniques. You don’t just learn singing exercises but she make sure you apply it into songs of your favorite.

Thank you, Liline. It is a joy to work with you on songs for your church. I can tell how much those songs mean to you by the expressive way that you sing them.

Over the past 5 years of taking lessons from Suzanne I have improved greatly in technique, strength, and overall confidence of my voice. No longer insecure about singing for an audience. She has a great knowledge of theory and performance and is very professional.

Thank you, Omari. I have been very proud of your many performances for the National Association of Teachers of Singing. You have performed and filmed in every one of our twelve recent recitals. We are proud of you for performing with Palm Beach Opera. Congratulations!
