I was at Suzie's workshop at Snape Maltings in the UK a few summers ago. I remember it was a time where things were feeling a bit stayed and in need of a shake up. Suzie came along with an energy and approach that is truly her own and just wonderful to be near. She delivered a fresh, engaging workshop which saw a roomful of us scribbling in notebooks. I left feeling revived, and with a renewed sense of possibility - not just with writing music and lyrics, but in trying to be the best artist I can.
Let me just say that one of my all time favorite workshops ever was with Suzie and I have taken a few…she is a natural teacher who puts her relationship with us first and then shares her gifts in a way that is both authentic and practical…just treat yourself!
