Meet The Team
I taught in the Atlanta area for 17 years for a family music company (Courtnay and Rowe). As a teacher and teacher trainer, I learned all aspects of the company. I teach piano, guitar, string, woodwind and brass.
I am originally from Florida and brought my husband Mike to visit family, and he saw why I called the area HOME! So, we decided to pack our bags and come to Florida! I am also a Life Coach for adults and children, so I care about my students in all aspects of their lives. As a life coach for children I really understand kids and empower them to build their self-esteem and confidence. Music is a big connector that makes you feel good, so when you study music, your world opens. Parents that say, "Oh my child is so shy" and then are so surprised when their child feels confident in all areas of their life after studying music. I have so much passion for what I do and enjoy building a lasting relationship with my students. It's not just about the music!
As my schedule overflowed with referrals, I began hiring musically talented teachers. I have been fortunate to attract many fine teachers that have the same philosophy as me. It’s very important to me to bring my style of teaching to the community.
Mike and I are so confident about our family and our teaching family, our work ethic and positive attitudes, that we are excited to bring B Amazing Music to our community.

Piano & Voice
Susan was born and raised in Illinois, where she began studying piano at age 5, studying violin at age 8, and formal voice training at age 13. In high school, she participated in a cappella, jazz, treble, and madrigal choirs, accompanying several groups, and singing and/or directing others. She was selected for the Illinois All State Chorus, was a voice major at the National High School Music Institute at Northwestern University and won numerous IHSA solo/ensemble contest I (one) ratings and other awards. Higher education took a turn away from music and into the legal realm, but music always remained near and dear to her heart.
As an “adult” (and mother of 3), Susan was a member of the Elgin Master Chorale (aka Elgin Choral Union) for many years, and had the good fortune of performing numerous major choral pieces with the Elgin Symphony Orchestra. She was also active in community theater productions and served several years as a piano judge for the prestigious Granquist Music Competition in Geneva, Illinois. Susan’s interest in teaching began when her (now adult) children were very young and began studying music. Susan regularly “coached” them on musicality and technique to augment their lessons. This eventually expanded to “coaching” other students in piano, voice, and acting.
Susan readily acknowledges that not every student will be a professional musician. But the benefits to the brain of learning music are well documented for both young and old. Never has Susan met anyone who regretted taking music as a child; but she has met many throughout the years who genuinely wished that they had done so.
