Susanne is very passionate about inspiring her pupils. Consequently my daughter (12 years old) has become very dedicated to her instrument. Susanne is also technically thorough and makes the most of every minute of the lessons to enable her students to achieve excellence.
Susanne is a fabulous teacher. Always very positive and encouraging. My Son passed his Grade 1 Cello with Distinction. I highly recommend her to teach any age or ability.
Susanne inspired my son to play the cello when he was 2 years old - he is now 22 and still loves to play! I cannot think of a better teacher to start off your child with the cello. Susi is a great teacher and performer.
Our daughter, aged 9, has recently begun private cello lessons at home with Susanne at 'The Cello Corner'. She has made incredible progress in such a short space of time. Her previous teacher was unable to bring the best out of her- however, since we switched tutors, our daughter can't stop playing the cello and tells us how excellent and fun her new teacher is. We are so pleased with Susanne and would thoroughly recommend 'The Cello Corner' to anyone looking for a cello tutor for their child.
â€œSusanne is a world-class performer of technical brilliance and astute musical sensitivity. She is an enthusiastic communicator when it comes to new composition as well as being an imaginative interpreter of more traditional works. As a cello teacher, Susanne is focused, engaged, full of insight and a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend her to any established musician or beginner.”
Susanne is a very talented and gifted musician. She has a wealth of experience that transcends music genres and helps others to appreciate her unique art form. I would recommend her to anyone wishing to expand their horizons and explore their creativity.
Susanne from 'The Cello Corner' is a wonderful cellist and the nicest person you would care to meet. I have not yet had the pleasure of having her teach my little one, but she would definitely be my first choice of cello teacher!
Having not played for several years, Susanne has re-awakened my passion for playing the cello with her positive and enthusiastic manner. She is incredibly patient and clearly loves what she does. I feel very lucky to have found her, thank you Susanne!
â€œSusanne is an intelligent and thoughtful, talented musician. She has good inter-personal skills which serve her well as both a member of an orchestra and as a teacher of the cello.”
Susanne Beer has been an integral player and member of the World Orchestra for Peace for over 10 years. As cellist and section leader she is amongst the finest in the world. She is a consummate musician and I am happy to offer her an unqualified reference.
