The instructor is very professional and friendly. My daughter learns how to read music and play piano quickly. Only two 30-minutes lessons, she can play her music well. I am very pleased.
Very pleasant and seem to be very focus on her students actually learning. This is our third piano teacher and I feel like the third time may a be charm ....,,and a keeper!
Suzie was very pleasant. Both of my children really enjoyed her! We are looking forward to continuing our lessons with her.
Great teacher! My son truly enjoys his lessons.
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.+ Read More
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.
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.+ Read More

It was a good experience for my 7-year boy. He showed interest, remembered what he learned, and continued to practice.
Very nice my daughter lover her.
My son loves taking lessons with Suzie, she's kid and adult friendly!
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.+ Read More
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.+ Read More
Suzie is a good teacher for older students. She had trouble keep the attention of my young first timer. I think that I would have been in the best interest of my child and Suzie if the first lesson was a short 10 minutes. Suzie seemed a little stressed after the lesson. We were asked to find a different teacher that would be a better fit for both student and teacher.+ Read More
Suzie was very knowledgeable about playing the piano.
Suze was very knowledgeable about the piano
Miss Suzie has been amazing! My son is engaged in practicing every day and really seems to enjoy the humor injected into the little songs he is learning while becoming acquainted with music theory, reading music etc. It has been a wonderful experience so far. I wish I could rate it higher!+ Read More
Ashly has thoroughly enjoyed her lessons with Suzie. She's a wonderful teacher.
Suzie is a talented and creative instructor. She is also very understanding when it comes to schedule changes and learning expectations. Suzie is very patient and easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend her as a piano tutor.
