I just wanted to say thank you (and if it were possible, send you a hug!) for another great class– I didn’t get to say goodbye after the last session! You guys all did an incredible job, as usual.
I just wanted to drop you a note to say THANK YOU for all your work organizing the latest The Consummate Flutist event! It was wonderful to see you! I also really appreciate your efforts to accommodate Sarah’s schedule. She enjoyed the opportunity to perform and appreciated the great feedback she received. I also enjoyed the entire MasterClass and was glad it worked out that I could arrive earlier than Sarah. It was a wonderful experience for me too…Ms. Baxtresser, Alberto and Soo-Kyung were all very inspirational! Thank you so very much
Thank you so much for organizing the wonderful masterclasses over the weekend. I learned so much and I really enjoyed the class. I hope to see you again soon!Sincerely,G Seifert
Just wanted to drop you a note and say THANK YOU for a wonderful weekend. My daughter (and I!) learned quite a bit, it was a worthwhile weekend and we’ll recommend to others

I was a participant of The Consummate Flutist this past weekend. I had a great time and really enjoyed meeting everyone. I was able to take part in a CM info session, campus tour and had the chance to learn more about Carnegie Mellon too. Thank you so much for organizing this event and for including me!
And thank you for a wonderful weekend. Ally learned so much and she came home with a clearer idea of her goals and the amount of work and practice it will take. I was impressed with the faculty’s ability to set expectations but, at the same time, stay supportive and generous. Ms. Baxtresser was a wonderful way to end the weekend!Rebecca
