I sent two texts to my old girls Sharon and Alex. “Darling your good old teacher needs you for Zenith theatre” and without hesitation they came. They know everyone so the PowerPoint and microphone process at backstage runs extremely smoothly. Love you girls and thank you.
They both said how can everyone grows up so fast, dresses so mature and performs so well?!! also all the Zenith Theatre staff Susie seriously loves you all. You are expensive but worth every cent . Best Theatre ever.
Hahahhaha #zeniththeatre #singingkids #mosmanmusic #proudteachermoments #studentshowcase2018 #singinglessonssydney @_sharonhung_
The most feedback I heard from the audience was 1. This is the best quality student show they have ever seen cause every single one is brilliant 2. Did you audition for these singers look too? Hahahhaha. Of course, welcome to Susie’s teen models Inc.

lizzie always wants to be a model. Since she was young I knew this is her dream. And she is a model now. I am always very proud of seeing her beautiful modeling photos .
I always remember what the kids wish to be when they grow up. When I was a young teacher at Montessori school I remembered Nicolas said he wants to be a pilot. He is now really a pilot.
Some kids told me she wants to be a chef , a designer. To be honest I really wonder where they are now.
I have a student saying she wants to be an actress. I saw her poster near wynard station she is the leading actress of Netflix series.
Good to see these kids doing what they always want to do.
Keep going kids!!
Alicia has the top score for year 12 HSC TrialExam (singing ). She keeps it low key but the problem is that I -am -a -show-off-I -can’t -control- it -and -everyone -knows. Oh and I really didn’t do much I just yell at her on a regular basis and she does all the brilliant work herself . Awesome work .
I am going to do a shorter smaller concert this year with less people and only one Act.
It’s Sunday 21/10 2-3:30 pm. Still in the Zenith Theatre and tickets will be selling on ticketek next month. Still all profit goes to the charity of “kids giving back” if no one comes and I will just pay.
You kids just give me a world class quality concert so I keep my good reputation in the industry .
I need your baby photos so when you sing I will have it on big screen on stage with your name on it and hopefully everyone will be awwwing and wowing (no printing of programs. Too much work for susie).
If you don’t give me your photo by the end of the month , I will put my photos there when you sing.
OH TRUST ME I WILL.
Most kids played on their phones while waiting for their lessons. Some read, some did their homework and some just looked into the space daydreaming. But no one ever did this. (Nanaha is my youngest one in the studio and quite a legend) . Hannah and I just stopped singing and went “wowwwww where is my phone? I need to take a photo ! No wonder she is a dance champion. What a driven 7 year old.

Out of blue I thought of a fun idea.
The average age of my students is 13. Even though majority of them have been with me for a very long time I forgot what they looked like before.
So I asked everyone to send me their cutest childhood photo and I am going to collage it all together. Maybe a little surprise page in our concert program so we can guess who is who?
Everyone knows off everyone here it will be so fun. I already had quite a few photos and I just want to squeeze all these peoples cheeks! And you know what? I am the least lovey Dovey motherly person on earth but I get all these awwwwww feeling just looking at their cute little photos .
Some kids couldn’t decide which one they just airdrop me the whole lot. And I had one boy sending me his one year old naked photo. Hahaha I said no naked ones please and also every baby looks the same. Maybe 2 year old at least please?
First time I sent student for speech competition . Ally got a highly recommended award for age 11 story telling category.
I love public speaking. Speech competition is easier than singing competition cause everything is the same except you are not capable to go out of tune even if you try.
And I saw my old speech and drama teacher Ms Victoria Clancy ! I can’t believe it ! Haven’t seen Ms Clancy for 20 years and she still remembers Susie!

Alex basically looks exactly the same. I taught her since she was in Wenona School in year 9. She is now 22 and looking exactly the same as she was 16.
I always have old kids contacting me and I always take them to eat Din Tai Fong which is the national food of Taiwan. Kids who have been to din tai fong a few times with me I will then change to somewhere else.
This is Alex’s first time so I said to her let’s meet up after her work at city. Alex does coding. The cool journey of how she gets into coding is another fascinating story. She basically quits her psychology at University due to disappointment of tertiary education and teaches herself about coding. With all the networking opportunity she lands a very challenging job.
Sometimes we learn from the kids too. She is such an organic girl eating vegan, doing yoga and mediation and enjoys walks and nature. All those things I don’t even do that much at this age. She told me the quotes she likes from John Lennon that you plan first and then life happens to you.
The sense of calmness in such young lady is incredible.
I love these kids. I told all my kids that after you leave me you can contact me anytime I will make sure I take you to the best food in Sydney. I always love to see you kids growing up and be valuable citizen to the society. That’s my proud teacher moment.
Today is the first day of term 3 .
I honestly had a very good day. Everyone came in with a big smile. Everybody looked nice and fresh and some teenagers look taller and taller than me . Funny how even 2 weeks can make a huge difference when they are growing .
At the end of the day I do think learning happens when you are having fun. I don’t want anyone to feel dragging when they think of coming. And I hope everyone leaves with a smile and happier mood than before you coming in (of course when you have an exam or competition on and you are not doing your work then I will definitely make you suffer).
My work is very fun. Good to be back.
