Sue Freeman Dopp
24 years ago, Sue joined the piano sales staff at Schmitt Music, and then went on to hold several different management positions in the Keyboard Division of Schmitt Music. She is currently a Sales Manager for piano and keyboard sales. She feels her experience in the piano business has provided her with a tremendous education while allowing her to be of service to and advocate for teachers and their students.
Sue has a bachelor’s degree in piano from the University of Minnesota, where she also completed several years of graduate work in Medieval and Renaissance music. Sue began teaching piano in 1970. She has served in many different capacities in the Minnesota Music Teachers Association (MMTA)-among them Honors Concert Chair, Vice-President for Contest, Contest Judge Coordinator, and for many years as an MMTA Foundation Board Trustee. She served as president of MMTA in 2003-2005.
She presently serves as Minnesota’s State Certification Chair, and President of the MMTA Foundation Board. She is also an active member of Mpls Music Teachers Forum, Thursday Musical, St. Paul Piano Teachers Association, the Schubert Club, and the Frederic Chopin Society of MN.
There is nothing that gives Sue more satisfaction than matching the right piano with the right client!
Mark – husband, father, composer, and performer – has been with Schmitt Music for over thirty years. He has received several awards recognizing his musicianship including an Emmy for a live performance at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, MN. He has also been mentioned in Music, Inc. magazine as one of the top five piano/keyboard salespersons in the country. Mark is ready to help and promises you a good time!
Nancy began selling pianos as a mid-life change of career. After teaching piano in her home while raising four children, she relished the opportunity to dress for success, get out of the house and talk to adults! Her piano performance degree from Indiana University, a lifetime in church music work, and marriage to a concert piano technician give her a multi-faceted view of the piano world. She is a good listener!
After work hours, Nancy enjoys being with her 9 grandchildren, playing the flute, and exercising.
