Susan is a true professional and makes every minute count in each lesson by teaching not just music but also motivation and theory through fun games and challenges like 100 days of practice. She offers periodic group lessons, where students can play for each other and learn the art of performing, speaking in public, and listening to our musicians. Most importantly, she has shown great care for my daughters through the years, asking questions about their school day and even coming to see them perform in a Shakespeare play completely unrelated to music lessons. Thanks Susan!

Thank you so much Ms. Susan for teaching me to play beautiful music and being patient and just an all around great teacher. I have had the best time being your student and hope to have many more great times with you. You are creative, straight to the point, talented, beautiful person, I really do appreciate all your work and wisdom as a music teacher.

It was wild seeing the harp on stage (at the Family Dog restaurant/bar). If I had the room, I would book you today.

– Steve T, manager at the Family Dog

just wanted you to know what a pleasure it was to hear you play while I was packing up my harp. It is so easy to forget what how harp music is so relaxing and calming when we’re the ones behind the instrument. It was simply delightful to hear you and wish I could have stayed longer. Thought I’d send you this little note to tell you how much I enjoyed it and how beautiful your playing was.

Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful music today.  You are so amazing and you really made all the difference in the world!  Everyone was raving about your performance.  Thanks so very much for all of your help, especially since I didn’t have a wedding coordinator.  I really appreciate it.  If you ever need a reference for your business, I would be happy to do it.
