Faculty Profile

Susan Summerfield, DMA

Professor of Fine Arts: Music

D.M.A. Stanford University

A.B. Douglass College and Rutgers University;

I specialize in early music performance practice. I teach courses in music history of the Baroque and Twentieth Century and music theory. I also offer private lessons in piano, organ and harpsichord; and I coach the chamber ensemble.  I include theory, history and performance in the courses that I teach with the goal of teaching students to be informed writers, listeners and musicians.

I present solo and ensemble concerts, performing on the organ, harpsichord and fortepiano. I serve as the Saint Michael's College Organist and often participate in community musical events.
