· Piano · In studio I am an adult and took piano lessons from Melody. I was very pleased with the experience and felt that the instruction was great. She was very patient which was helpful because I would feel nervous playing sometimes. Lessons started on time which was helpful given my busy schedule. Overall very enjoyable.

· Piano · In studio My son was 5 years old when he began piano lessons with Ms. Melody. Each week, he was eager to go to the lessons and always had big smile on his face after the lessons. Through the lessons, he learned how to read music notes and play songs beautifully at recitals. Ms. Melody is fun and firm in teaching. She’s the perfect teacher to unlock a child’s potential. We really appreciate Ms. Melody for opening music to our son and our family.

· Piano · In home Ms. Melody was my son's first piano teacher. She was excellent at establishing the foundations to make him enjoy the lessons and want to learn more. Based on his baseline understanding, he continues to grow and enjoy music. Thank you to Ms. Melody for her experience and patience.
