As a senior adult I took my first lesson in over 30 years. I'm still a beginner at piano, but no time like the present to pick up where I left off. We went over what I'm working on and I played a little for her. Suzie asked questions to determine my level of understanding. She then helped me with two of the beginner songs I'm working on.

Ava had a great time. She said Suzie made her laugh.
Her Dad (my son) warned if she didn't catch on right away that she wouln't like it. He saw (heard) when she came home singing.
Thanks!

Suzie is a wonderful piano teacher. She is very patient and teaches a variety of music that our daughter enjoys and looks forward to learning. Suzie also provides constructive and positive feedback during each session so that our daughter can continue to be motivated to learn/progress even more.

It was a good experience for my 7-year boy. He showed interest, remembered what he learned, and continued to practice.

Mrs Suzie. is one of the best piano teachers in the VA. She has been teaching my daughter for about 6 years and my son for about 3 years. My kids look forward to going for the class every week. They are lucky to get such a talented teacher. I would highly recommend every parent who wants their kids to learn Piano to contact Mrs Suzie.

My son has taken lessons with Ms. Dotson for the past two years and he has learned much in that time. She is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher who is very good with all of her students. We had several recitals and all of the students were very impressive. My son was only four years old when he started and she warned me that he may not be ready to learn yet. Fortunately my son was able to listen and concentrate. He is a fast learner and he really bloomed under Ms. Dotson. I would highly recommend Ms. Dotson to other parents.
