I had similar experiences as were mentioned in this discussion, including the bad-mouthing after I left. However, this was done at a FA, not an AM. In fact, it was refreshing to go to the AM in town and be treated respectfully and professionally. Having been in this hobby for several years, I can attest that independent studios train on the premises as well. I have been fortunate to have had some wonderful instructors who did not pressure me for sales, lie to me, or give me substandard teaching. One in particular was from AM.
