Journalism,but also included music courses, graduating magna cum laude. While in
college, she performed in the choirs and played trumpet in the bands. She soon

whether it be performing or teaching. So Susan moved to Nashville and began her

musical training. She’s been teaching on and off since 1982 and performing since
1980. In 1994, she started writing songs in Nashville, producing demos and

Our violin teacher Tabitha gets high praise from students

Our violin teacher Tabitha does a wonderful job with my 6-year-old daughter.  The first thing I noticed about Tabitha was that she spoke with my daughter as an equal, was honest with her about her progress, and made her feel comfortable right away.  Tabitha pays attention to technique and is a wonderful violinist herself.  I love it when she plays during the lesson!  I would highly recommend Tabitha for new or experienced violin students
