Lou Ann Reese

Collaborative Pianist


Lou Ann Reese became involved with Suzuki Talent Education in 1970, first as a Suzuki parent with her two children, and then as a collaborative pianist. She accompanied numerous Suzuki Statewide Festival Concerts in Northrup Auditorium.

Since joining Augsburg University Suzuki Talent Education, she has served as the collaborative pianist on their International Tours to Austria, the Czech Republic and England. In addition to Suzuki students, she accompanies a women’s chorus and other instrumentalists.

In addition to the piano, Ms. Reese also plays celtic harp and harpsichord. She received her music training at Gustavus Adolphus College, and held a 40 year career as organist at Incarnation Lutheran Church in Shoreview, MN.

“The Suzuki program has been part of my life for 50 years. I am filled with gratitude for the opportunities I have been given and grateful for all the families, students and teachers I have been privileged to know and work with over the years. Music does make a difference in the world.”
