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!
