About me

Susan Adams grew up in Ottawa in a family which encouraged music study. She began playing at the age of five, and started taking lessons when she was six years old. Susan studied the piano privately in Ottawa with Jaromey Anderson and under Boris Roubakine at the University of Calgary, where she obtained a Bachelor of Music degree in piano performance.

Canada Council grants enabled her to study early keyboard instruments and related subjects at the Schola Cantorum in Basel, Switzerland. She studied harpsichord, continuo and organ with Jean-Claude Zehnder, and early piano with Klaus Linder. Susan had the opportunity to play many historical instruments in the well-maintained collection at the Schola. Travels to Holland enabled her to have lessons with Gustav Leonhardt.

Experience
In Canada, Susan has concentrated on performing and recording the works of Bach, Couperin, Rameau and Scarlatti on a variety of harpsichords. Playing the Viennese-style fortepiano, she has specialized in the music of Haydn, Mozart and J.C. Bach. A focal point of Susan's work is the www.earlymusicstudio.com website which features recordings of her playing as well as information about the traditions of historical performance practice and repertoire.

She is a member of the Kelowna branch of the Registered Music Teachers of Canada.
