Overview

I have a wonderful family (husband and 3 children) with whom I love spending time. I love to sing and play the piano, and I believe the ability to play and create music is a gift from God. No matter what we are doing in life (going to school, playing an instrument, working) we are to be doing it to His glory!

I love teaching piano and helping students grow musically. I am thankful for the opportunity that I have had to teach over the past 20 years. One of my favorite quotes is from Bach: "I play the notes as written, but it is God who makes the music."

New Offering --- WunderKeys Preschool Piano -- specifically designed for the very young student (ages 4-6). This is an excellent way to introduce the very young to the piano.

Melanie has been such a blessing! She is a great teacher and goes above and beyond to help me through my lessons. As an adult student, she asked me what I was looking for and has tailored my lessons to that. I am thrilled to have found her.

Melanie has been the piano teacher for our family since 2007, and I continue to be impressed by how well she works with my daughter. It has been wonderful to see Allison's progress through the years under the guidance of her teacher. Piano is a favorite time of our day! I highly recommend Melanie as a piano teacher.
