About Susan

Susan Kindall is known internationally as a performing member of two professional classical piano duos, numerous chamber groups and as solo recitalist. In addition to a successful classical performance career, she has toured churches throughout the United States as sacred composer, arranger, solo pianist and soprano soloist. Her students are successful international piano competition laureates, doctoral graduates of leading conservatories, performing/recording artists, published composers and teachers who chair university piano departments and direct ministries around the globe.

An expert in the musics of Richard Cumming, Andrzej Dutkiewicz, and Ronaldo Miranda, Dr. Kindall is a passionate advocate of the piano music of living composers. Her most recent world premiere (Ronaldo Miranda's Festpielmüsik for Two Pianos & Percussion with members of the Greenville Symphony and BJU music faculty in 2005) is considered by the composer to be the definitive performance of that work to date. Dr. Kindall is an official observer by invitation of both the bi-annual Hilton Head International Piano Competition on Hilton Head Island (2001–present) and the XVI International Frydryk Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, Poland celebrating the 200th anniversary of Chopin’s birth (2010). She has accepted repeated invitations as National Group Discussion Leader at the National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy Pre-Conference Seminar for Collegiate Piano Pedagogy Teachers, most recently in 2013.

Having served on the staff of Interlochen Arts Camp and the artist faculties of Csehy Summer School of Music, The University of Oklahoma and Ouachita Baptist University, Dr. Kindall is currently Professor of Music in Piano Performance & Pedagogy at Bob Jones University. Winner of the OMTA Graduate Piano Competition, her numerous awards include the Gail Boyd deStwolinski Award for outstanding service to OU School of Music and the President’s Club Partner Award for outstanding service to BJU. Susan Kindall remains dedicated to the success of her students, both spiritually and musically.
