My name is Suzan Pleva, owner of Melody Piano. I am an independent piano instructor who is classically trained. I have played the piano for 21 years and feel that I have found my true calling. I was born with the ability to play by ear, and am very well rounded in every aspect of playing the piano. I feel very passionate about teaching others to become as well rounded in this arena as possible. I really enjoy working with children. I am very patient with helping individuals understand each and every concept of the piano that is introduced to them.

I believe that music can bring you closer to emotion. It can take you to any place that you prefer to go. It can help your mind to focus on more than what is in front of you by inspiring your imagination to be free and open.

In short, music teaches virtue, tolerance, kindness; it teaches us about other languages and cultures. It stimulates the higher functioning of the brain, reduces stress, and improves socialization.

As an instructor, I understand these things, and seek to be not merely a teacher, but a mentor who serves as constant source of inspiration and encouragement.

Customer Testimonials

Amazing Piano Teacher! My son has been taking lessons with Suzan for 3 years now. He was 6 yrs old when he started. When I first talked with Suzan on the phone I knew she would be able to teach my son, who is very energetic and hard to keep focused. I was right! She has done a wonderful job. He had his first piano recital with Suzan the beginning of December and did great. After that recital he loves playing the piano even more. If you are looking for an awesome piano teacher look no further than Suzan Pleva. -- from a very grateful mother--


Respected Instructor “Suzan is a respected instructor of Piano in the Lapeer area. Her professional skills in communications consulting are invaluable to the development of The Metropolitan Detroit Musicians League website and outreach.”


Great Teacher! Our son has been taking lessons from Suzan for only a short while now. It is amazing how much she has taught him in such a short amount of time. She has such a great way with kids, and we are so happy to have found her! She makes music fun, and that's what is important.


I Highly Recommend This Teacher My daughter and I have been taking piano lessons from Suzan for a couple of months now. I am thrilled with what we have been learning from Suzan. She is an excellent teacher and is able to teach both my daughter (age 7) and I in completely different ways that suits our individual needs for learning, I would not hesitate to recommend Suzan to anyone else that desires to learn to play piano- young or old!
