About MusicWise


MusicWise classes begun  in South Lyon, teaching the Simply Music Rhapsody program, but has expanded into Milford as well as Childcare centers in South Lyon, West Bloomfield, Bloomfield Hills, Hartland and Waterford.  Some classes follow a multi-age format and are available as an elective to preschoolers already in a childcare program, and to families in the community who want to come participate with their child. The South Lyon classes are grouped by age.   All classes are taught by Susan Hiipakka, a veteran teacher and early childhood music specialist.  As a band director, experienced, licensed music teacher, presenter and former preschool teacher, Susan brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the field of Early Childhood Music Education. Possessing both Bachelor and Master of Arts in Music Education, she has great experiences as both musician and teacher.  Susan is excited to introduce the new and unique Simply Music Rhapsody Program to the community!
