Melissa is amazing! My 13 year old loves music-- right now he is taking piano lessons with her weekly but I feel she does a great job of fostering his love for music across the board. We began lessons in the January of 2018 and as of May of 2018 he has mastered several skills and moved up to a new lesson book.

She does a great job of meeting students where they are and encouraging them to the next level. She's not just a teacher, she's a friend, cheerleader and super hero! We love Ms. Melissa and are excited to continue to learn and grow with her!

Affordable-- lessons from a professional!

Melissa not only teaches my 7 YO daughter to read music and play the notes she encourages her to create her own music. My daughter looks forward to her lessons and has a love for music that is nurtured by Melissa.

My 7 year old grandson began taking piano lessons with Melissa last October and his parents and I could not be happier with this experience. Melissa is so kind and encouraging. Sonny loves every lesson and is always eager to share what he learns. He is learning to read music, understand music theory and developing stage presence. We highly recommend Melissa as a piano teacher and thoughtful motivator.

As an adult learning piano for the first time, I was a bit nervous and thought, "Can you really teach an old dog new tricks?!" Well Melissa put all those fears to rest! She's such a natural teacher and encourager, guiding me along - one key at a time. She's professional, patient, and kind. She offered practical tips to help me read music. Most importantly, she took the time to help me get comfortable on the piano. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn play piano or hone their musical skills. She really is very talented and a wonderful teacher!

Melissa is an excellent teacher who is patient, creative and thorough! I see tremendous growth is my son's piano playing and music reading.
