Teaching since:

Hello! My name is Melissa Tan and I'm a 27 year old professional pianist with a Bachelor's Degree in Piano Performance (cum laude) from the University of the Philippines College of Music. I have been teaching piano in the Manila and in San Diego to all ages for the last 5 years.

I have expertise in both traditional and Suzuki piano methods and I teach my students the most beautiful piano pieces that fit their level. I'm very encouraging and students have stayed with me for many years!

Ms. Melissa is a very professional teacher. My daughter learned so much in just a few months. Definitely recommended.
