Teaching / Music Musings
As a Teacher
Suz shares an expansive approach to playing with the language of music by integrating diverse learning styles—students explore how to speak and understand music by ear (oral tradition), how to read and write it (written tradition), and how to use practical chord theory to understand how songs are made.
Suz teaches: Piano, voice, guitar, ukulele and bass — as well as songwriting skills, recording, arranging, CD production, band coaching, and music technology. She delights in inviting students to find the music uniquely within them, and in helping them put it to practical use.
