About Mrs. Dora Sutter ...
Position: Orchestra 5th & 6th
Welcome! My name is Mrs. Sutter and I’ve been teaching in the Chandler Unified School District since 2016. I'm excited for the new school year and to work with you all. Be ready to learn and have fun as we explore the world of orchestral music.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Arizona State University with a BA in Music Education with an emphasis in strings. During those years I was involved in the ASU symphony, small chamber ensembles, and performed solo recitals. I was also involved in The String Project of ASU where I taught both private lessons and classes. Before CUSD, I worked two years in the Kyrene District as a middle school Orchestra and Guitar director.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that everyone is capable and that we can accomplish goals if we fix our minds to it, especially in music. I love music and strive to inspire others to appreciate it too. Music can teach a child discipline, patience, team work, eye-hand coordination, and it can build a strong character. Music is truly universal and being involved musically can be a great way to be a part of the musical world around us.
