Susanna Valleau is a Seattle-based organist, pianist, and music teacher, living her dream of building a career entirely through music. She serves as music director of St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church in Shoreline, Washington, where she proudly plays the newly installed Ortloff organ, directs St. Dunstan’s choir and oversees the music program, encouraging musicians in the parish to share their gifts when an occasion calls for it. As a faculty member of the Seattle Girls’ Choir, Susanna has the privilege of working with the Allegra Choir (5th and 6th grade) and Prime Voci Choir (high school), accompanying singers on the piano and teaching music theory. Susanna’s bustling teaching studio is open to organ and piano students of all ages and levels of proficiency. She loves nothing more than watching students fall in love with music and show off their accomplishments in semi-annual studio recitals. An active performer herself, Susanna regularly collaborates with local choirs and orchestras, including the Byrd Ensemble, Seattle Bach Choir, Seattle Metropolitan Chamber Orchestra, and Puget Sound Symphony Orchestra. She also works in smaller duet and chamber music settings on the organ, piano, and harpsichord. As a solo performer on the organ, she has appeared at regional and national conventions of the American Guild of Organists, as well as in concerts throughout the United States.
