Susie Perkins GBSM PGCE

Susie is a graduate of Birmingham conservatoire where she studied piano and bassoon. After this she gained a P.G.C.E. in secondary music teaching at Cheltenham and Gloucester College,  embarking on her first position at Kenilworth School from 1996-1999. Susie has been teaching music in a variety of settings for over 20 years including Northampton Music Service and Magdalen College School, Oxford. Her husband Tim has just completed a Ph.D in composition from Birmingham Conservatoire and they are both active musicians; Susie performed Tim’s piece for bassoon and string orchestra, Bending Glass, at Oxford’s Sheldonian Theatre in 2012.  Susie is also mother to active boys Zac and Olly who keep her busy when she’s not making music!


  • Daisy enjoys her classes immensely and looks forward to her lessons each week.

  • Friends and family are really impressed with what and how they learn, as some of the lessons they talk about are just about working through a book and learning each piece one at a time. Amrit and Gurjeevan love telling everyone about their fun lessons and talk about their compositions with pride!  I cannot thank you enough for all your time and attention to the two of them.  It has given them both so much confidence in themselves and they are so proud of what they are achieving.  As parents, we couldn’t be happier.

  • The Musical Discoveries lessons are fantastic: pacy, fun and engaging.  It’s been great to see my daughter’s singing confidence grow.

  • A fun way to learn all about music.  The children sing, dance and play different instruments all in a relaxed and friendly environment.  After the lessons none of the children are in a rush to go home!

  • As the parent of a child who had never played piano before, I found the teacher to be delightful and patient and their lessons to be engaging and at an appropriate level for my daughter.  The fact that the main emphasis of CCPT appears to be on engaging the student and not about their ability level makes it the perfect environment to learn in!

  • I like going to music because it makes me happy and I like learning the songs.

  • I loved playing games like ‘Cuckoo where are you?’ and ‘Doggy with the bone’.

  • We have seen Jordan grow in confidence over the past year and the group nights as well as the concerts have played a huge part in stretching him and building up his self belief and confidence.  This was noticeable over the festive period when at church Jordan played 2nd keys for our carol service in front of a packed house.  This he wouldn’t have done without your help over the past year so thank you and keep up the good work!
