• Welcome to the Music Hutch Studio!

  • Welcome to our new website! The Music Hutch Private Lesson Studio was born in February 2015 when I took over ownership of Plato's Music.  All of the experienced teachers who taught at Plato's have remained with the new studio and we have and are adding teachers to offer a wide variety of lessons.  I personally taught at Plato's for five years before taking over ownership.

    A little about me: 

    I received my Bachelor's of Music Education at the University of Georgia in 1983 and acquired a Master's of Business Administration in 2006 from the University of Phoenix. I am a retired teacher with thirty one years of teaching experience - twenty five with Fulton County Schools. I taught high school, middle school and elementary school bands during my career. I have taken all three levels of bands to district Performance Evaluations and has received superior ratings at each level. I have also performed on Trumpet for the past forty-one years.

    In 2006, Mr. Hutcherson founded and directed the first ever Fulton County Elementary Honor band. The Honor Band performed at the GMEA Fifth District Performance Evaluation and received straight superior ratings as a first-year group. The 2009-10 edition placed as 'Gold Level Finalist' in the Band Brilliance National Young Bands Competition. The band was made up of seventy-four students from twenty-five elementary schools in Fulton County, GA.

    I also founded the Vivace! Summer Band Camp in 2007. The camp is for middle school students in grades 5 through 8 and just had our eighth annual camp this past summer with 74 campers, two concert bands, jazz band, master classes and more. More information can be found at vivacecamps.com

    Currently, I teach at Holy Redeemer Catholic School after school band program and teach privately here at The Music Hutch Studio in Johns Creek, Georgia.

    Our aim as teachers here at The Music Hutch is to take a student at whatever level he/she is, whether beginner or very experienced, and help each student set and reach his/her own goals while working hard and having fun.

    I'm excited about owning a studio and look forward to what the future brings!
