I came to Susan when my voice was in its first stages of changing. This being one of the hardest times to use the voice in a young man's life, I was quite nervous about how my voice would turn out, and if I would be able to sing the same way I did before my voice changed. I was so relieved after my first lesson with Susan. Her patience and care for every one of her students can be felt in the room. She is attentive to every detail, creative in her teaching methods, and never EVER gives up on student. If in one lesson a student does not reach a goal, that goal will be the first thing accomplished during the next lesson. I know that I would not be the performer I am today, and would not have the skills and confidence that I have if I had never taken voice lessons with Susan Derry.
