Susan's work, inspired by her love of classic film and television, is a vibrant and whimsical celebration of 20th century American pop-culture. A published artist, Susan's work has been featured in Roger Taylor's Marilyn in Art, and in the liner notes of the CD Rudolph Valentino: He Sings and Other Sing about Him, produced by Grammy Award-winner Phil York.
In 2007, Susan's portrait of Princess Diana was selected from hundreds of submissions to grace the cover of Mem Mehmet's coffee-table book Diana in Art. Susan's hope is that her work will evoke fond memories as well as introduce new generations to the fascinating world of classic film and television.

Kids' Jam engages and challenges the early elementary child and builds on early music experiences to prepare for formal instrument lessons later on. Children attend with parent or caregiver, to create a community of families and support a continuity of music-making and learning at home. Emphasis is on singing, both traditional songs and original songs by Kids' Jam creator Lui Collins - many nature-based celebrations of the season - and drumming, as well as developmentally appropriate solfege and rhythm play, and lots of fun and active singing games to take advantage of the lovely boisterous energy of this age group!
Three 10-week sessions are offered in Fall, Winter and Spring.

First child $180, sibling $100. Summer session is 6 weeks, with tuition of $115/60 including all materials. Registration fee $10 for new families only.
