About Susanna S.

I'm a violin teacher with over 10 years of experience teaching all age groups. I've taught private lessons and orchestra classes at the public and private level. I'm known for my ability to teach vibrato, bow hold, position, tone production and scales. I've worked with beginners up to advanced students. Are you preparing for an audition? I can assist you with auditions for high school and college levels. I look forward to meeting you. I'm immediately available and have openings for several students. In my experience, I've found that the Suzuki Violin method books work very well for private lessons but can teach other methods. I have a degree in violin performance and play the piano as well. I've also taught 4th-12th grade orchestra in Arizona and Utah. Please contact me to have a trial lesson for yourself or your child. I'll be happy to meet with you to talk about your interests.

Susanna’s kind and sweet nature helped me to feel so comfortable as a complete beginner on the violin. She was so patient and encouraging and made learning how to play a fun and uplifting experience. She is an excellent teacher. I cannot recommend her enough!

Susanna taught both violin and piano lessons to our daughters (ages 7 & 9) for nearly two years. She is a wonderful musician in her own right and as a teacher she was patient, encouraging, and helped my daughters develop their musical talents. She gave them a solid foundation in the fundamentals of musical performance. She was organized and explained expectations with clarity and caring. I'm so grateful for everything she did to advance my daughters' skill levels. I highly recommend her.
