I am Dr. Susan Buehler, owner and instructor at the music studio, Music Lasts A Lifetime. I offer private instruction in piano and voice. I moved to Oregon from Kansas where, as a life-long resident, I taught at the university level as well as maintaining a private studio. Prior to moving to Newberg, I lived and operated a voice and piano studio in Cannon Beach, Oregon for thirteen years. Family ties then lead to the decision to move home and studio to Newberg where I now live with my husband, John.
I am a former member of the music/voice faculty at Baker University in Baldwin City, Kansas and hold a Bachelor of Music degree from Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas and Master and Doctoral degrees in vocal performance from the University of Missouri-Kansas City Conservatory of Music.
While teaching at Baker, I taught voice, vocal diction, vocal pedagogy, music appreciation, keyboard skills for music majors, opera/music theater performance class and was the collaborative pianist for the choral department.
As a faculty member, I served on and chaired several academic committees and directed the University’s Artist & Lecture Series from 2000-2009.
While at Baker University, I was appointed to teach at Harlaxton College in Grantham, England for a semester and participated in numerous international performance tours to more than fifteen countries. I also served as organist for University academic functions and was the organist at the First United Methodist Church for twenty-five years.
