Suzanne's studies took place in Manchester, England at Chetham School of Music, the Royal Northern College of Music with Peter Lloyd (where she graduated with honours) and finally at the Paris Conservatory with Alain Marion.
Whilst studying at Chethams, she had the good fortune to meet and study in Switzerland with her mentor James Galway, who was enchanted by her playing.
