Suzanna Sifter‘s passion for music is only rivaled by her feeling of necessity to fill the world with some form of goodness. In her life this takes the form of jazz piano composition and performance. Currently, Suzanna is also full Professor at the Berklee College of Music.
“We need to support and foster the goodliness around us, as it nurtures our well-being. This is why I feel teaching for me is a high calling. The melodies and rhythms we learn about are the bread and water nourishment of a song. Maybe a melody transports you to that thoughtless space from which the music is derived. Filled with sound, yet infinitely quiet. Breathe.” – Suzanna Sifter
