My daughter has had Susan as her private viola instructor for 5 years now. Susan is a very dedicated teacher who has prepared my daughter for Solo and Ensemble competition as well as helped her prepare to join the highest level of orchestra at her high school. Susan is ever so patient and takes the time to be sure my daughter gets the material before moving on. She also motivates my daughter to do her best. Susan is also very creative. During Covid, she made every effort to continue instruction and used Skype to safely teach. We are so glad to have Susan as an instructor!
Many years ago, during an onsite school visit, we met Susan (who was providing a violin lesson to a student). My son was intrigued, and with the student's permission took a turn playing the violin. After that and for the next 10 years, he attended Four Oaks Academy For Strings!
Susan is also a great teacher for adult beginners. Her demeanor, expertise, and professionalism make taking lessons with her easy (and fun!).
Susan is an excellent teacher! She is patient, encouraging, and knowledgeable. She introduced my daughter to a love of music that will last a lifetime. I highly recommend her.
