Opening up the world of music to young people is a passion for Susan. Piano students of all ages and levels are given a well rounded musical education including ear training, rhythmic clapping & technical exercises which develop skills that are practical and fun! Students are also introduced to various genres of music from the classical, popular, jazz and Broadway repertoire. Motivated students are prepared for Conservatory Canada or Royal Conservatory piano and theory examinations, encouraged to participate in the Kiwanis Music Festival and all are given the opportunity for performance at Ms. Fischer’s Piano Recitals. Susan also enjoys teaching adults, whether as beginners or those who are seeking to pick it up again after many years! Practicing a musical instrument is healthy and rewarding at any age! It nourishes brain development, sharpens memory, maintains flexibility and facilitates coordination among many other health benefits!
