“My daughter Isabella started piano lessons with Susan at the age of 7 and now, aged 16, is about to take her 8th grade exam. What an amazing journey. Under Susan's exceptional guidance she has developed into a wonderful musician who can play all styles of piano music. Susan has extensive experience, musical understanding and knowledge. Her approach is thorough and detailed. She is patient and encouraging, working with students to achieve their goals and ambitions. It has been awesome to watch Isabella's progress; her commitment, achievement and love of the piano are a testament to the quality of Susan's tuition. Susan has also provided many opportunities for performance, and to watch all of her students develop such confidence and pride in their accomplishments over the years has been truly inspiring.” - Nerida, Marrickville
