About Melissa
My name is Melissa L. and I am currently employed by the West Chester School District as a strings teacher. 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 violin, 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!

· Violin · In studio
My name is Julie, and Melissa taught me how to play the violin. She was recommended to me by a friend who has piano lessons with her.

She is a great instructor and explains concepts very well. I recommend her to anyone young or old, skilled or unskilled. She is patient yet demanding, in a way that makes you want to work/play harder as she strives to teach what she can to her students.

Whether it's your first time playing the violin or wanting to improve, she herself is an amazing violinist that will help and guide you every step of the way. Regardless of what instrument you wish to play/learn, I have no doubt that she will help you excel with her teaching abilities. 10/10.

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.

My teaching addresses modern challenges in cello playing, promotes an integral approach to learning, and supports practice as a result of Informed Intuition through comprehensive cognitive preparation. I have created a method Beyond the Octave which allows students the absolute freedom over the fingerboard by dealing with the extended positions and the advanced use of the thumb. Informed Intuition teaches musicians how to carve their own paths and find their voices on the cello through careful studies of the repertoire, music history, and theory, where the artistic approach to music is based on educated and intelligent choices based on a belief that music always starts from the heart; musician allow themselves to be vulnerable enough to follow their intuition, which should be rich, informed and educated. I'm teaching that there are no permanent solutions and recipes for performing but rather options to play music differently and coherently every time. I am a firm believer that ...

I had an eye opening experience taking lessons with mr. Gaydamovich. He is a fantastic teacher, who has an in depth knowledge and practical experience not only about the technique, but also about musicianship as a whole. As an incredibly well rounded and thoughtful coach, he has helped me overcome my hurdles in playing and guided me to become a better and more thoughtful musician as well as a human being.

Private Teaching Experience I have been teaching for 5 years with students of all ages and levels of playing

Methods: I grew up learning the Suzuki Book Method and this is what I prefer to teach my current students which I find great for beginner cellists! Major/Minor Scales, Arpeggios, and Etudes are some of the essentials I cover in learning the cello

Musical Concepts: music theory, proper bow technique, proper left hand technique, phrasing, rhythm

Lesson Overview: Gener
ally, lessons consist of a warm up with scale-arpeggio and warm-up exercise. After a warm-up, my students' focus on a specific piece of repertoire that pin-points a certain technique . Once I think the student has progressed through and mastered a specific piece to their level, we move on to more challenging repertoire learning new technical concepts and ideas. Lessons are a great way to help you progress much faster at the cello!

I am continuing to study cello with Jamie and I am much further along than I anticipated. I also study piano, so I am not a traditional beginner cello student. Jaime is able to fine tune my lessons to take this into account and build on it. He is very knowledgeable about proper technique as well as music theory. I would recommend him without reservation for all abilities and ages.

Susanna is a great teacher.

I have never played a violin before, and she is walking me through the process with patience, clear instructions, different interesting and fun ways of explaining concepts, which make lessons flow easily. By the time the lesson ends, I can hardly notice that an hour has passed by.

It is a joy to have her as a teacher. I have had a few questions off schedule, and she has never failed to answer them promptly.
I look forward to every lesson I have with her to keep learning to play this beautiful and amazing instrument.
