Sue Smith gives private piano lessons in her home studio in the Fall Creek neighborhood. She concentrates primarily on teaching classical pieces, but is also assigns jazz, blues, and modern pieces and teaches improvisation, chord patterns, and sight reading. There are occasional group classes on the weekends. Sue is very professional and works to develop a strong rapport and mutual respect with her students. Her primary requirement for acceptance and continuation in her studio is commitment and she asks each student to determine how much time they can dedicate to piano each day, based on their aspirations, priorities, and time constraints. I appreciate that she also lets her students know about significant current musical events in the community. Our 14-year old has been taking lessons with her for 2 years, seems happy and challenged, and enjoys the pieces. We also enjoy listening to the music, too!
