About Melodie
I am Melodie, a highly experienced private lesson teacher of voice, piano, and theory. Do not sign up with me until after you read my profile. I am accepting new adult students for my residential studio, which is a high second floor walk-up near Ashland and Chicago. Schedule-As-You-Go lessons with no recurring schedule slot are an option, if you prefer that to taking a lesson the same time every single week. Online lessons are available for singing and theory, but not piano. Specialties are (1) teaching classical vocal technique from physical perspective to discover the student's unique and true voice, (2) teaching how to read paper piano music at first sight and play it without knowing the song, and (3) translating the confusing way you were taught Music Theory into something that makes sense. Complete beginners welcome in all areas. Adv
anced lessons are available for voice only.

As partners, the student and I build a plan, balancing current aspirations with proven methods, keeping practical value in mind.

Upfront dealbreakers:
• Communication outside of lesson time will be mainly internet and email. The email address in your profile must be a valid form of official business communication.
• Students may not bring pets, children, or guests to the lesson. A quietly observing adult guest is welcome with 48-hour notice.
• My students know if they use too much fragrance, whether it be laundry scent boosters or hair treatments, they may be refused entrance into my studio. It's a big deal.
• You pay for any lessons not canceled or rescheduled before the 24-hour deadline, whether you attend or not. Do not be near me when you are contagiously ill. Ask me to forgive late cancellations caused by true emergencies, but realize I don’t have to.
• If you are a singing student, you need a place where you can practice. Prior to your first cancellation deadline, you must read the "Your First Singing Lesson" section found on each Singing or Voice Subject Page.
• If you want to learn how to read keyboard scores or understand how to play keyboard by ear, sign up for Music Theory. If you don’t have regular access to something that can legally be called a piano, including weighted keys and a damper pedal, sign up for Music Theory. Repeat: if you can’t practice on a real piano, don’t take Piano lessons. Music Theory lessons will probably teach you what you want to learn, anyway.

Ask me a question using the Ask-A-Question feature. Watch my videos and think about it. I'm a good teacher. I sincerely appreciate the time it took you to read my profile. Thank you.

So far I've only had one lesson with Melodie and she really cares to help you achieve what you're trying to accomplish. We went through a few things such as posture, how to breathe, humming, vowels, position of tongue and other things. About myself: I don't know how to sing and this is my first singing lesson.

My lessons with Melodie have been great! She is extremely knowledgeable. I'm a new piano player, and she has been very patient with me as we work our way through the basics. She is great at explaining the theory side in a way I can understand. And the out of class work she suggests not only drives home what we worked on in the lesson, but it also has me playing some basic songs...which is encouraging and keeps practice fun!

Described by critics as "flawless in her singing" (Cultural World Bilingual ), "natural singer with beautiful colors...sings wonderfully, communicating the excesses of passion and emotion, the quick contrasts of mood , with grace and conviction" (San Jose Mercury News); possessing “a pure, strong soprano with phrasing of sumptuous elegance” (San Francisco Chronicle), " dazzling high notes are piercing without being ugly" (San Francisco Classical Voice), "beauty of her voice is outstanding...it has power to set the theater ringing, but it
also has a wealth of color... Her stage presence...is magnetic" (Peninsula Reviews), "Her mezzo tones...evoked memories of Maria Callas' spell-binding rendition" (San Jose Mercury News),
Olga was announced the Best Leading Female Singer in North East in season 2006-2007 by Opera Online.

Olga transformed my technique completely! She's got a lot of experience and knows exactly how to help me find the right technique using various ways to explain, such as the physical and physiological side, as well as more imaginative and creative explanations that I could easily relate to. I enjoyed the lessons very much because I felt I was achieving something new every lesson. Will definitely take more lessons with Olga in the future!

I took some piano lessons as a child, but hadn't played in 10 years when I took some lessons from Michelle. She was always on time, personable, friendly, and enthusiastic, and did a great job tailoring her instructions to me based on what I already knew, both about playing the piano and in terms of general musical knowledge. Now I play keys in a band, and it's all thanks to Michelle helping me get started again!

Kayla is very informative and descriptive about how the body works in producing sound. She not only showed technique but also gave some easy tips on how to improve. Best of all, I finally understand how a raspy sound can occur without damaging the voice! This is a thing I've found difficulty in finding online, in a way that does not damage your vocal cords. All in all, a fun teacher and I recommend her, especially if you like rock/metal as she seems to have a great knowledge of this form of vocals.

About gianni
I am a professional singer/musician from Las Vegas, NV, The Entertainment Capital Of The World.

I hold two Bachelors Degrees in music performance and music education. I have had the privilege of performing in both operas and musicals as a singer. I've also musical directed many productions where I've conducted and played in the band or pit.

I am constantly looking for ways to bridge the gap between classical and contemporary techniques and strive to break the stigma that the two cannot both be utilized.

I also teach knowing that no two students are the same and that there is no fool-proof method. Each student must be treated as an individual.

I pride myself on being able to diagnose each student's needs and provide them with a regiment and technique that will allow them to perform at their maximum ability.

3 Reasons Why Piano Players Should Also Learn the Organ
There are many reasons why a music student may find themselves learning to play piano on a keyboard rather than on a baby grand: cost, space, or simply lack of access, for example.
