The lessons will be based on the skill level of the student. We will paint from observation as well as from photographs. Art History will be incorporated and we will study the paintings of the masters. In the students paintings, focus will be on perspective, color, composition, and accuracy in proportions.

Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.

She was so kind and helpful toward my kids for the fist day.
Youjia S.
My daughter struggled to stay focused for the whole one hour. It would be better to have video conference option so she can see the teacher.

Simply put Megan is at the top of her game and her style of teaching is one that most anybody will benefit from her classes."
