About Melissa
I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all age groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.


What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

Melissa was the perfect teacher for my child. She's warm, engaged, patient -- and very skilled. I think my daughter continued with her piano instruction only because she enjoyed her classes so much! If we hadn't moved an hour away, we would still be going to Melissa. She's awesome! I highly recommend her.

Jeff was such an amazing teacher. He came to our home and even brought the special paper with him. Our son who is 7 and his friends (8-9yrs) thoroughly enjoyed learning how to fold origami and it was a creative fun way to spend the afternoon. We hope to do it again soon.

About Rose
Hello, I am Rose from Antioch. Well, I am originally from France. I've just been imported by my sweet husband Jeff in March 2017.

I teach French and sewing and even sewing in French if you want ! That's ideal if you want to go on an internship or even work in the fashion industry in Paris !

To tell you more about my passion for sewing, I believe I must just have been born with the talent of sewing. I remember my mom running after me as she was scared that I would pock my eyes with her needles... Already at that age I was stuck to the TV obsessed with the Parisian fashion shows at each fashion seasons. But you know what ?

Interestingly enough I am not so much into fashion anymore because I have discovered the importance of wearing the right type of clothing specifically made for each of us. You know, sewing clothing stays the same
whether we are into fashion or not, it really doesn't matter. I'd be happy to share more about that with you.
I also enjoy sewing house items and I like to figure out easy and fast ways to sew these items as well as clothing for children.

I'd be happy to meet you at your house or in mine or online, as you wish.
If you are looking to gain basic sewing skills fast then you found the right person because I have created a course that is specifically designed for that. First we'll learn everything about your sewing machine. Then you will be able to learn how to draw a pattern to cover a book of your choice, sew a zip, buttons, a sewing bag, a simple pin cushion and a little dress that includes pockets as well as bias binding on the armholes. At the end of this few weeks course together you will receive videos of the whole course that you will be able to watch over and over for free as you keep perfecting your new skill. The only thing is that these videos are still in French ;-) My French students have shared with me how happy they were with the details of that course.

And just with these basics you will be able to sew hundreds of items ! Isn't that cool !? Plus, to make it easier for you, I have prepared all the supplies for you in a kit for an extra cost. Ask me about it.

If we meet in person, a minimum of 2 hours per session usually works best.
As for online teaching I have a very good webcam that shows great close up details.
