Dear Svetlana, I want you to know that every one of your piano students came yesterday and played very beautifully. I was just floored at the quality of the playing. From the very youngest to the most grownup they were uniformly excellent, and you would have been so proud of them.... Each performer was excellent and delightful. Thank you so much for giving our audience a chance to hear them. It was a very special day for us!!
Warmest wishes for the holidays—and much appreciation!
Susan blends her mastery of the piano with a sensitivity for her students. An accomplished pianist whose love of music resonates with her students. Susan is a role model for my daughter, engaging her through instruction, performance and achieving her personal best.
On behalf of the staff and members of the Highland Park Senior Center, I cannot thank you enough for the beautiful concert you and your colleagues performed on November 14th. The talent was unbelievably amazing and the music selection was just perfect for a cold winter's day! Much of the audience, including myself, closed our eyes and allowed ourselves to be transported to another world...a beautiful, peaceful and uplifting place in our music filled thoughts! It was an amazing experience! The admiration expressed to me, by our members, as the concert finished and over the following days made it clear that you touched the lives of many.
