Piano and harp students played beautifully at this Christmas recital at Columbia Presbyterian Church.
We are so grateful for the use of their sanctuary. Everyone was masked and fully vaccinated, the piano and harp were treated with hand sanitizer between each perform. It was so wonderful to be in person.
Susan Ottzen has been a wonderful piano teacher for my son. He’s a quick learner, and Susan both challenges him and encourages him to explore on his own. She is very patient but also keeps things moving in lessons. My son has loved piano lessons with Susan!
As a conservatory-trained instrumentalist and music educator myself, I put in a lot of time researching teachers in the Atlanta area. I was thrilled to find Susan; when I spoke with her for the first time, I knew I’d made the right choice for my son. Her background as a professional harpist, jazz musician, piano teacher, recording artist, and her commitment to maintaining membership in professional music organizations piqued my interest as I compared her background with the qualifications of other local piano teachers. I highly recommend Susan Ottzen to anyone looking for a high-quality, dedicated private teacher. Jennifer McCrary 9/15/21
