At Levine

Sue has been on the Levine faculty since 1994 teaching private traditional and Suzuki cello lessons and cello ensembles.

“Levine offers faculty complete support for ideas and activities concerning students; and they never give up trying to improve conditions for us.”

Teaching Philosophy and Approach

“As a teacher, I assess the level and interests of my students correctly so the consequent method of presentation of material will result in happy and encouraged learning. I have my students learn one item at a time, review instruction often and perform regularly.”
