Piano Lessons

Dear Parents,
Hello. My name is Sister Susan Clark and I am a pianist and teacher residing here at Notre Dame Center.  I love teaching piano lessons and I have been doing so for many years.  Having opened a studio here in the Notre Dame Center in 2017, I offer piano lessons that are comprehensive and engaging with the goal of creating a life-long love of music.  I do love the opportunity to connect with families while helping children grow and develop.
I have been a student of music for many years and still enjoy working on my performance and teaching skills.  I completed a B.A. in Music at Notre Dame College of Ohio and a Masters in Performance from Bowling Green State University.  I am a member of Music Educators National Conference, the National Guild of Piano Teachers, and the Cleveland Federation of Piano Teachers. I operated a piano studio in Brecksville for more than twenty years. In addition to piano, I have taught Choral Music and Related Arts in the Catholic Schools of Greater Cleveland; I have been a Church Choir Director, organist, and pianist in the Cleveland Diocese for many years.
I offer the opportunity to interested students of Notre Dame Elementary School. The lesson would be ½ hour in length each week after school, 36 lessons across the academic year.  For the sake of continuity, I could also offer a few lessons during the summer months, if there is interest.   I think it is important for students to have the opportunity to perform their music for others, as it helps build confidence and personal presence.  To this end, I do schedule small piano recitals, one in December celebrating the Christmas season, and one in May celebrating the season of spring. Parents, relatives, and friends – their “fan clubs” if you will – would make up the audience.
Because I have added an extra day to my schedule, I am able to accept more students for the 2020-2021 academic school year. Tuition is $85.00 per month whether there are 3, 4, or 5 lessons during the month.  This can be paid at the beginning of each month or by semester. Students are responsible for purchasing their own piano music, the cost of which is over and above the monthly tuition. I can assist by ordering music for them.
If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please contact me at [email protected]
I look forward to welcoming you to my studio!
