I like to watch a child's face light up when they learn something; I make it fun and bring incentives (stickers, snacks, treats, lil rewards for a job well done). I make sure to ask if they've practiced (I ask for 15+min a day). I always start with the hand position and strong posture, and then start with scales to warm fingers up. I like to work on 1-2 songs per week and then as the student progresses add more challenges. I also incorporate youtube or fun art history or interesting "stories behind the songs" too if possible. (For instance, for homework, ask your parent if you may go online and view a picture or a video of a full orchestra, or watch a waltz).

I believe that learning music is built upon a strong relationship between teacher and student. This relationship involves good communication, honesty, open mindedness, and most importantly the desire to LEARN and have FUN. I approach teaching music by knowing and understanding the student's musical goals, and teaching fundamentals, theory, and technique through the styles of music that the student wants to learn. For beginners, I tend to teach basic technique through simple songs to get the student playing music as quickly as possible. As technique and reading ability improve, we use the genre of music the student selects.

Excellent Instructor

I'm a college music professor, and so I have experience in the area. Melissa is a superb instructor. She is patient and engaging, and my daughter (age 9) loves her lessons. She applies just the right amount of "pressure" so that things are fun, but also on task and moving forward. Five star instruction. Highly recommend.

When my son was 11, he decided to take piano lessons. Mr Montavo, asked him why he chose that instrument and proceeded to have a conversation about the importance of practicing and not giving up. He is an amazing pianist and has a good knowledge of how to help kids succeed and grow as a musician. He helps with educating the parents on what kind of keyboard, piano, and music is best for your child
