Susan Ottzen Jazz Harp Trio at Waller’s Coffee Shop, January 18th, 5-7 pm

Here’s what one of our fans had to say about our trio.

Thank you – and Don – so much for traveling to Clemson yesterday to play your program of great jazz tunes. It was thoroughly wonderful. The audience was extremely appreciative. I can’t tell you how many people have stopped me yesterday and today to thank us for arranging the concert. People mentioned not only the great playing but also the way you and Don personalized each piece with your commentary. It all made for a wonderful Sunday afternoon.  – Jamie Dean


Introducing Music Games During Lessons

I’m now offering computer music games during lessons, using the website This is a great way for students to learn music concepts, note reading, rhythm, and pitch. The games are available from Primer to Advanced with catchy, kid-friendly visuals.

A teenage student of mine learned how to read the bass clef notes in two weeks with these games.

If you’d like to visit the website to try a trial game go to:
