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!

Cello · In studio
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.

Si T.

New Castle, DE

I am a laid back person but I try to make lessons strict because it is better for the students. I am specialized in violin techniques. I will teach you difficult techniques in a very easy and fun way. I believe that every student is different. Therefore, I will not teach every student the same way. All students should come prepared for the lesson.

My son really liked Michelle! He was all smiles after the lesion, excited about the homework, and eager to show us what he was working on.
