Here are just a few testimonials from some of my piano students and/or their parents. I consider it an honour to have taught many dedicated, hard-working students.
Sue is an absolutely fantastic and talented piano teacher, I can’t recommend her enough. My son is on the Autism Spectrum, has ADHD and an auditory disorder, and Sue not only embraced the challenges teaching him brought, but accommodated his needs brilliantly at every turn. She is very flexible in her teaching methods – our lessons were often away from the piano, playing innovative games that Sue herself created or sought out for him, and being active with balls, bean bags, and magnets. Sue adopts modern, innovative teaching methods frequently, which we found to be SO helpful in learning great habits from the beginning. My son (and his little sister who often tagged along) would frequently ask to go to her house because he just loved his lessons so much. She cares about you and your family, and became a true supportive friend to both my kids and myself. We recently moved across the province, and wish we could have brought her with us! If you’re looking for a teacher who is always willing to go the extra mile for your child and accommodate whatever your child’s goals are, whether it be learning for fun or more serious instruction, Sue is undoubtedly the piano teacher you’re looking for.

Sue is a very talented instructor and gifted musician. She has a good balance of being friendly, patient and kind while commanding respect from her students and holding them accountable. Sue uses a wide variety of teaching methods to help her students not just learn music and theory but also enjoy it. We are so happy we found your piano studio Sue! A.K. June 2018
Sue provides a wonderful service. She has unlimited patience and knowledge of music. She passes on so much that opens up the understanding and appreciation of music. She manages to make learning accessible to even the most novice of novices! Thank you Sue for all that you do! L.S. September 2017
Best piano teacher we have ever had. We have been to four other places. Kids are progressing really well and actually exploring the instrument rather than just sticking to their books. I am now taking lessons too! G.S.
Sue is friendly. She is like a member of the family. She treats my child like he is her own child, with love and respect. She is more than a piano teacher. Other teachers progress through pieces fast, and don’t care about the result. Sue takes time, makes her students get it right, get it perfect. She gives lots of feedback to parents. Sue is an inspiration. H.N.
Our daughter started her lessons with Sue a year ago, having attended another piano program for 3 years prior. Sue not only teaches how to play piano, but also helps to understand music foundations. Sue uses an interactive approach in a very relaxed atmosphere, incorporates different music theory games, making learning interesting and engaging. Sue pays attention to posture, hand and finger placement when sitting in front of a piano. She focuses on student needs and dovetails her program to suit the student.
We are very happy with our daughter’s progress so far. Our daughter is more confident with reading music and playing piano. She has flourished in the relaxed learning environment under Sue’s watchful eye. Thank you, Sue! M.P. March 2017
Piano lesson day is my favourite day of the week! Sue always greets me with a smile. Sue is patient with me. When I don’t get something right, she gives steps for me to get it right, and doesn’t get mad. She is a very calm teacher, makes jokes, and doesn’t yell. E.F.
