INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION THAT WILL
IGNITE PASSION AND FOSTER TALENT
My son, Iain, is 19 years old, and he has autism. He is beginning his 12th year of taking private piano lessons from Ms. Susie Norman. Ms. Susie is a most capable music teacher for autistic children. She has a strong background in music personally, and she has spent years giving autistic children a musical education. During that time, Ms. Susie has developed her own unique approach to teaching. She treats each child like an individual, learning the strengths and weaknesses of each one and customizing her lessons accordingly. She observes the emotions of the child at each visit as well. Because she utilizes this method, she is able to minimize the child’s frustrations and to maximize success. Ms. Susie has a talent for knowing when to nudge a child forward and when to allow him to wait because he isn’t ready yet. She is beloved by all the students, and Ms. Susie cares very much for each child that she teaches. I know that nothing gives her pleasure quite like watching a child joyfully grasp a musical concept. Ms. Susie takes the time to talk to her students. My son enjoys visiting with her on piano lesson days, and he talks with her about whatever topic interests him. His visits with her help him to grow his conversation skills. Over the years, Ms. Susie has become more than just my son’s piano teacher - she has become our friend. I could not imagine anyone taking her place, and I cannot recommend anyone better.

My children have been instructed at Susie Norman’s Studio for approximately 5 years. We continue our lessons with Mrs. Norman as a result of her dedication, patience and understanding of the special needs community (especially autism spectrum disorder). Her studio provides a safe and calming atmosphere for all of my children. Thank you for opening up the world of music on a personal level for my children.
