Suzuki Department Accompanist
Annette Lee has taught Suzuki piano at MacPhail since 1995. Her teaching approach encapsulates the Suzuki Philosophy in its entirety: that every child can learn. She observes each child for who they are, as individuals eager to begin the journey of learning through the piano. She hopes to provide each child with success, not that they become prodigies, but to be accomplished learners.
She has performed on the MacPhail Spotlight Series, as a winner for the Wheaton Conservatory Concerto Competition, the Vilar Performing Arts Center, and with the Classic Arts Trio in Chicago. Annette is the recipient of the Nell Stockwell Award in 1984.
She holds a Bachelors of Music from Wheaton Conservatory of Music, a Masters of Music from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, with additional training from the Aspen Music Festival, Blossom Music Festival, and Chicago Suzuki Institute. Ms. Lee is a registered Teacher Trainer in Piano under the auspices of the SAA.
