Susan has been playing piano and singing all her life. She began playing at the age of 3, and started writing songs shortly thereafter. She quit piano lessons after only a few years. When she finished high school she decided to go to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and recieved a BA in Psychology. She decided to go back to school for music and studied again at UNCG with Dr. Barbara Hill. She began teaching while in school, and has been teaching for 21 1/2 years. Always having wanted to be a musician, she has played for weddings and parties, and also plays and sings in a band as well as a solo artist. She is also a member of the Raleigh Music Teachers association.

She believes that every child should have music lessons. It has many benefits: It's a good way to learn how you learn, it is full of math and fine motor skill training. It also teaches about the balance between success and failure, and that a positive attitude self esteem, and perseverence can be nurtured through the study of piano.

She grew up in Greensboro, North Carolina and after having moved to Raleigh NC, she married Kevin Riggs. She loves swimming and believes in working out and meditation.  She has an organic garden in Youngsville NC, and is passionate about the environment.
