    In my opinion Mrs. Aimée Raechel Sutton could be mentally unstable. I requested a refund instead of her offer to return to teach the last class in the 36 package I purchased because I was concerned about her mental health. I got the impression she was not concerned about my child only money. The lessons were not up to par for the price $45 per lesson and when I asked her to teach classical music she ignored my request.

    Krisztina, I am truly thankful for all that you do.

    Mrs. Sutton was a superb music instructor. Her love for music and for teaching were both obvious and infectious. She combined a thorough and intuitive understanding of all aspects of music with her own special gift for bringing out the inner musician in each student. The result was that our daughter progressed quickly, often played just for the joy of playing, and even practiced without being prompted. So in addition to becoming a better saxophone player, she also deepened her own appreciation for music, which is a gift that will last a lifetime.

    Dr. Der: thank you for your time, skill, and patience. You have made a great difference in how I perceive music and helped me gain confidence.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First, we start with a 15 enrollment call to learn about the student and if he/she might be a good fit for our program. Then, we have an enrollment evaluation where the teacher gives a 30 minute lesson, evaluates the student's level and needs, discusses the goals and expectations of both parties, and guides the buyer in deciding a lesson package and schedule moving forward.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Maryland Certified PreK-12 Music Educator

DMA in Flute Performance


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

We have a series of packages to meet each family where they are. The more lessons they sign up for at a time, the more benefits and the lower the rate per lesson!


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Why are you starting lessons? What do you want to do with your new music skills? Perform alone or in a group, compose, make a viral youtube music video, jam with friends, play for those who are sad or sick, or just play for yourself? What do you love most about the music you listen to? What (specifics) do you dislike about other music? Are you able to add something to your schedule every day going forward so you can practice effectively?
