Our Programs and Instructors
Suzanne has been a wandering minstrel of sorts for most of her adult life. Her greatest joy is empowering people, especially children, to express their creative and musical talents. She believes that music and learning should be fun, and her many students can attest to that! Suzanne has been teaching guitar and voice to Danville area youths for many years, and plans to continue that tradition through Zing Productions.

Without question, I was blessed when I met you over 25 years ago. Fumbling with chord changes on my guitar in the background, I watched you lead sing-a-longs. I listened, watched and experienced how your voice and smile could transform people who project themselves as serious, rigid and stern into silly, light-hearted, happy spoon players. I learned music is powerful. Music can make people happy. Music can bring people together. Thank you for giving me such a wonderful gift and sharing your song.
