I have tons of experience and formal university training in music education. I have taught music in public, private and parochial schools through the years. But I have focused on private lessons mostly with my own business. I know how to take the complex and make it simple and fun! There are very good reasons my students rise to the top. Experience makes a difference, and I have more professional teaching experience than 99% of other instructors. Learning the best way, helps you learn faster and have fun while you succeed!

Mel is an exceptional instructor, possessing a true passion for music that shines through in every lesson. He has a kind and nurturing teaching style, and his incredible personality makes learning an enjoyable and enriching experience. I have taken lessons from other instructors in the past, but I have never progressed as quickly as I have under Mel's guidance. He is truly a master of his craft, and I eagerly anticipate every opportunity to learn from him.
This guy Mel is a real joy to take lessons from. A real music professional that you can tell has been in the music business his whole life. He takes a lot of care in making sure you learn the right technique. I met with him in his home studio and felt great from start to finish. He taught me a simple fiddle tune and had me play it while he hopped on guitar to show me how good you can sound with some background support. Great guy. I am looking forward to my next lessons with Mel.
