Urbandale Piano Gallery Teacher Feature, May 2013 - Susan Hayton

Susan HaytonSusan Hayton - Piano & Flute

Susan grew up in northern California, but settled in the Des Moines area in 1989 where she has been teaching piano for over 20 years. Prior to that, she earned a B.A. in Music and Christian Education Certification from Concordia Teachers College in Seward, Nebraska.

Susan specializes in Clavinova Technology and published the User-Friendly Manual for three series of the Clavinova CVP models. In 2002 she was selected to teach group lessons by Crystal Cruise lines and taught hundreds of students from all over the world on eight cruises. Susan also developed a unique piano curriculum called “KEYS Piano Instruction”; group piano lessons for kindergarten through high school.

Susan also works part-time at Hy-Vee. It is her hope to eventually build back up her piano studio and begin teaching again full-time. She enjoys volunteer work for the poor/homeless, teaching Sunday school, reading, and word and math puzzles.

Susan has made it her goal in over 25 years of piano teaching, to teach piano in such a way that her students love their lessons and are motivated to continue for years. Every lesson is individualized to the needs of each student and his/her learning pattern. Susan teaches both individual and group lessons and works well with all ages from kindergarten through adult.
