Beth Sussman was granted a full scholarship to The Juilliard School,
where she received her Bachelor's and Master's Degrees by the age of 21.
She is currently a master teaching artist at the Los Angeles Music Center
and the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. Her goal is to diminish the "aura
of sanctity" that classical music seems to have, bringing it down to earth
for all to enjoy. As such, she gives performances and presents workshops
and residencies which introduce schoolchildren to classical music, and is
able to convey interdiciplinary abstract academic concepts through her
In 2012, along with neuroscientist Dr. William Shankle, she presented
a lecture and demonstration entitled: "Neuroscience and Notes:
How Music Can Help Keep Your Brain Sharp." Recently, Beth gave a
presentation at a TEDX conference, where she demonstrated how the
skill of steady beat is connected to reading fluency.
