Natalia Susoeff – Piano/Voice
I was born in Ukraine and I have lived in California for the past 15 years.
My passion for music started at age 4 when I was in Kindergarten. My teacher saw my musical talent during music and choir classes, and assigned me as a soloist of the choir group.
I asked my parents over and over again to get me a piano. You could say I was obsessed.
At age 5 and a half I got a piano but I had to wait until I was 6 years old to attend music vocational school, which was an 8 year program. During this interim time, I would compose my own melodies and find popular melodies on the piano.
I was a very fast learner and very disciplined. Two years later, the Music School had a competition for the class of composers, in which I took second place. Right after graduation, I attended Music College. Some of the best time of my life included:
- -Performing with the jazz bands and the Orchestra.
- -Learning different styles of music, Theory, Harmony, Solfeggio, Folklore, Choir, including classes like “Conductor of the choir” and “Play”
- -Singing world know classics, jazz and pop.
After graduation, I got the most desired job of sound engineer at the Audio-Recording production studio.
This period of time gave me valuable professional training in the art of recording, and I quickly rose to the top of my profession in the local area.
I became a recording artist doing voice over’s. I started to write jingles and advertisements for radio and TV commercials. I also completed a lot of projects for theater and solo music recording artists. I learned to write arrangements and sound tracks, and work with modern audio recording software.
At age 25, I felt very confident about my skills and experience. I made the decision that it was time to share my personal knowledge and spirit with others, and so I started to teach piano and vocals.
My many years of international performance experience gives me a unique set of skills to educate students with practical skills they will be able to apply in their own musical futures.
I teach beginner, intermediate and advanced level students.
My approach to teaching is a combination of formal technique and adaptive individualized style. I teach classical music, jazz pop, improvisation and composition. Reading, technique, theory, and performance are the keystones of my curriculum.
I create a fun and friendly learning environment and have so much to share.
