Suri Cruise fires her music teacher over 'creative differences'

By Oli Coleman

Adorable Suri Cruise has inherited her father’s exacting standards.

The 9-year-old fired her music teacher over “creative differences,” Page Six has learned.

When the daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes went backstage with her mom after a performance of Broadway’s “School of Rock: The Musical” on Tuesday night, we hear the show’s star Alex Brightman asked the precocious pre-’tween if she played an instrument. Suri is said to have replied that she “used to play the guitar,” but had parted ways with her teacher.

“She said she was ‘a very nice person,’ but that it didn’t work out,” according to our source.

A rep didn’t comment.
