Susan Hamblin Dennis

Susan Hamblin Dennis maintains a busy schedule of accompanying and teaching in Toronto. She is a past pedagogy and piano faculty member of both the Glenn Gould School and the Community School for the Royal Conservatory of Music. As an examiner for the RCM and an adjudicator of music festivals, she has visited many areas of Canada and the United States.

While her students have been consistent festival winners, first class honour recipients, and a silver medalist in graded examinations, she is most interested in encouraging the development of the musician in everyone, regardless of age or ability. Her wealth of experience and knowledge allows her to tailor her approach to realize the full potential in each student.

Ms. Hamblin Dennis holds degrees in Performance and Pedagogy from the RCM, the University of Windsor and the University of Michigan, where she was a teaching assistant at both the college and preparatory levels. As a supporter of Canadian music, she was a board member for thirteen years for the Alliance for Canadian New Music Projects and a contributor to the development of the Contemporary Showcase syllabi. She is the mother of two talented musicians.
