- Teaches students:
- Ages 8 to 80 and special needs
- Teaching since:
I have been teaching privately and within the public school system (NYC high school instrumental program) for 20 years. I am a patient teacher with a former career/background in counseling. I love music and want my students to love it too! Experienced working with English Language Learners and children with special needs. Children and adults, rock, modern, classical and music theory are some of my strengths and interests.
I started teaching music lessons privately as a teenager and have had private students for over 20 years.
As a student of Ms. Coppa, whithout the shadow of a doubt i can say that she is the best instroctor whom I have the opportunity to learn from . She offers her knowledge and support to her student in a kind of caring manner. She is very patient. I feel certain you will be just as impressed with Ms. Coppa as I had known this incredible teacher for four years.+ Read More
I had 3 years of music classes with Ms. Melina when I was in high school, having little to none knowledge in music. By the end of my music classes with her, I was able to play guitar, piano, and different kinds of drums.
Ms. Melina is a very knowledgeable, experienced and patient teacher. She was able to explain the concepts and techniques in simple words therefore making them really easy to understand. During class, she would demonstrate the techniques several times and make sure I was doing them right. She was always happy to see improvement and give encouraging feedback. Her class was lots of fun and simply very pleasant. I highly recommend Ms. Melina to anyone looking to have a enjoyable experience of learning a musical instrument.
This website has very good instructors. EX: Ms Melina Coppa is one of them. 6 months ago I didn't know how to play any music instrument. Now, I know how to play acoustic guitar, bass guitar and all type of drums thanks to her
Hola me gustaria compartir mi experiencia con ustedes.
Ms.Melina Es una gran maestra de musica, Es muy paciente Cuando nos ensena . Nunca pense que Iva a aprender a tocar la guitarra Porque ya lo habia intentado antes y desde que empeze a tomar clases de musica con Ms.melina aprendi en unos Meses a aprender a tocar guitarra y actualmente Es mi maestra y estoy aprendiendo a tocar piano.
Asi que si estan interesados a tocar algun instrumento estan con la persona correcta.
I have been taking classes with Ms. Melina for 3 years now and it's been a great honor. She is very friendly, helpful, kind and engaging. Has many unique way of teaching music if I struggle with one way. I still remember when I first came to her class with out any previous knowledge of music but, with her outstanding help I learned most of it from scratch in very short time. Besides learning music, we also have conversation about my academics, current local and global issues. Which keeps me updated and educated on recent world issues along with learning the music I desire. I really recommend Ms. Melina as tutor for any students who wants to learn and love music.+ Read More
