Teaching music and performing in orchestras and chamber ensembles are Susanna Campbell’s twin passions. She has been playing the piano since 5 years old and harp since 9 years old. Recent concert highlights include the world premiere of Gary Schocker’s Heaven’s Above for the American Harp Society’s National Conference in Atlanta, the debut concert of the New Houston Harp Ensemble, and performances with AURORA – a harp, flute, and cello ensemble embracing classical repertoire while championing contemporary music by emerging composers. Susanna studied with Mr. Robert Brownlee, retired piano professor at the University of Houston, and Ms. Emily Mitchell, harp professor at Stephen F. Austin State University. She graduated with a master’s degree in harp performance from SFA in May 2014. After completing high school Susanna opened a music studio in her home and began exploring the fascinating world of music with harp and piano students of all ages. Her students have won prizes in local and statewide competitions. In addition to teaching, Susanna freelances for weddings and special events throughout Houston and holds principal harp positions with Round Rock Symphony, Houston Civic Symphony, and Energy Corridor of Houston Orchestra. She is the pianist at her church, a published arranger, and a faculty member at Lone Star College and Houston Summer Harp Festival. Susanna values and appreciates her students and seeks to train them to be well-rounded musicians versed in repertoire as well as theory, music history, sight-reading, and aural skills. Her teaching approach combines and balances technical accuracy and proficiency with musical understanding and expression. Susanna Campbell, M.M. - Harp, Piano
