Melody is as lovely as she is talented. Not only does she understand the harp inside and out, but her playing is like nothing I've ever heard. While she can of course play classic tunes, she is also innovative with the harp, tackling some of today's most popular hits. Most importantly, however, Melody is patient. While the harp is her first passion and she is well beyond her years, she is not only willing, but eager to share her talent with others. It has been a pleasure learning from someone who has in time become a friend. I would recommend Melody to any and everyone with the slightest passion for harp. While it is a joy learning from her, the greatest treat is hearing her play. Thanks for everything Mels!+ Read More
She was extremely helpful and patient despite my very poor knowledge with the language. Would recommend as a instructor for any subject, not just my weakest one. Occasionally asked problems not regarding Chinese and still got very helpful advice.
Melody has been great with students. She has a lot of patience and she makes the lesson fun. She is very talented as well.
