"Susane Reis is a wonderful and dedicated teacher for students of all ages and levels. She carefully guides each student's pianistic development with the appropriate repertoire and technical exercises, allowing the individuality of the student to blossom. Susane is an outstanding role model for her students. We are very fortunate to have Susane join the Eugene community of piano teachers!"
~Dr. Claire Wachter, Associate Professor of Piano/Pedagogy
University of Oregon
"As a teacher, Susane knows how to adapt her teaching materials to capture the interest and bring out the best in each student. Her infectious enthusiasm for music and her diverse musical background make her uniquely qualified to help each student succeed. On top of that, Susane is a fine performer herself and really understands music of many genres on a deep level."
~Dr. Stephen Thomas, Associate Professor of Piano Performance
Brigham Young University - Idaho
"Susane is a wonderful teacher: rigorous, loving, and full of humor. Our daughter Luzia (9) has been with her for 2 years, she has made immense progress, she loves the lessons and she even likes to practice -- all thanks to Susane!"
~Ulrich Mayr, Professor of Cognitive Psychology

"It's amazing how Susane manages to keep the class both structured and fun. You can see the professionalism, dedication and pure joy of music the moment you step into the classroom.
But forme the clear success is that my son starts singing the songs, dancing and playing on the keyboard all on his own. "More dancing!" he cries, before turning back to his toy piano, playing and stopping to the song.

"Our son is loving his class, talked about it all the way home after his first group lesson and well into the evening...he even remembers to do his homework, enjoying it all the while! Thanks for a great beginning!"

"Our 14 year old daughter had been experiencing dissatisfaction with her piano playing for some time. We decided to look for a new teacher to see if that would increase her interest. After just a few months of working with Susane she has gained a new enthusiasm for her instrument. She even won a composition competition when before she had shown no interest in composition. Susane's positive approach and supportive style has made a real difference for her. Most importantly she's having fun.
