About Melissa
My name is Melissa L. and I am currently employed by the Cecil County Public Schools as a strings teacher. While traveling from Northeast High School, Cherry Hill Middle School, Gilpin Manor Elementary, Holly Hall Elementary, and Thomson Estate Elementary School, I am also offering private lessons for strings and piano. I have acquired a degree in Music Education with a concentration in violin from the University of Delaware. I have been playing the violin for 21 years and also have been giving private violin lessons for the last 10 years. Although my main concentration is focused on the violi
n, I also provide private lessons for viola, cello, string bass, and piano.

As an educator, I strive to provide students with the knowledge to become highly skilled and competent musicians. Whether music becomes a hobby or profession, I want my students to appreciate and engage in their learning as aspiring musicians. Music has made such a positive impact on my life, and I hope to inspire my students to love the music that they play. The many years that I have played the violin along with my 9 years of private teaching has given me knowledge of effective techniques to incorporate in my teaching. I hope to be a positive and encouraging role model while engaging my students to their fullest potential as musicians!

As a beginner in learning to play the cello and read music.I have learned a great deal through my weekly lessons with Melissa. Every lesson includes presentation of a new skill and a review of previously taught concepts. Melissa effectively provides me feedback about my performance and methods to correct errors. She maintains a high level of rigor and expectation to every lesson. Melissa presents as a very professional instructor with a strong work ethic and dedication to her field.

Through the lessons I help students on understanding the fundamentals of music theory, creating an ideal sound, musical expression and coordination.
Every student is different. I work with students individually and use different approaches for each one of them. Such as methods, repertoire and lesson skills.
But most important of all, I always make sure that my student does not loose interest and have fun making music!

I am a classically trained musician and I love teaching all ages and exploring music together. I strive to create a fun and productive environment for my students, focusing on both both the technical and musical elements of playing. I have received a Master's and Bachelor's degree from the University of Minnesota and Eastman School of Music in Viola Performance, respectively. I've taught privately and to groups throughout the years and I am excited to bring my expertise to your lessons!

About Emma
I am a violist passionate about music education, currently teaching in Philadelphia. I taught group viola lessons at the Moorhead Summer Orchestra Camp in Minnesota (2014 and 2015) and I have taught private viola and violin lessons over the years to a variety of ages. I love to encourage the individuality that each player brings to their instrument at every level of ability. I tailor each lesson to the skills and goals of the individual, and I'm always open to ideas and styles the student wants to pursue. The greatest joy of teaching to me is seeing how each student responds to different ideas
. I enjoy finding new ways to communicate clearly and directly to help my students improve quickly and express themselves effectively.

Violin and viola beginners can expect to learn a solid foundation of basic skills, including posture and music reading. In addition to traditional learning methods and ideas borrowed from the Suzuki system, I encourage beginners to improvise to become better acquainted with the sounds of a new instrument and the feel of creating music. This allows us to build good basic technique and musical style with a sense of exploration and fun. I currently teach from my studio in Center City Philadelphia, but I am willing to make exceptions and travel for students nearby, depending on the situation. l would love to hear from you if you have any comments or questions about what you might learn taking lessons with me.

I look forward to helping you to achieve your musical goals!
