Susan Gonzalez as Teacher
Susan Gonzalez is a dedicated vocal pedagogue that is equally successful in classical and popular genres.
Susan Gonzalez was trained at CCM (Cincinnati Conservatory-Conservatory of Music) and Eastman School of Music. Under the tutelage of Italo Tajo, Lorenzo Malfatti, Richard Perlman, Andrew White and John Spong she gained valuable skills in singing and multiple styles of music. Her extensive experience as a singer combined with 25 years of teaching studio voice has given her a keen insight into the workings of the human voice and all of the nuances involved in singing with a free and fully actualized sound. She comes from a lineage of great teachers such as Sidney Deitch, Andrew White and Richard Hughes. This method of teaching fully incorporates a bel canto approach to singing. Her students have gone on to major conservatories and many now sing and teach internationally.
Susan serves on OPERA AMERICA’S Singer Training Forum and as New York State Governor of National Opera Association.
