Learning to Play, Playing to learn

Melissa is a phenomenal teacher. She's my son's advanced piano teacher and Operatic voice instructor. In the short amount of time we been working with her, he's more confident on his voice abilities and range, and learning essential piano skills for classical music performance. We have recommended her to our music directors at the high school level, and she's worked in accompanying many students already. I know my son will benefit from her multitude of knowledge in music. Highly recommended!

My daughter began taking voice lessons from Melissa about a year ago. She has grown a love of music in my daughter that we are excited to see continue developing. Since starting lessons with Melissa, she has become more confident and even auditioned for a lead role in her school musical. Opening night of the musical Melissa even came to the performance to support our daughter. You really can't count the blessings Melissa provides to her students. Book with her as soon as you can. You won't regret it!

I was a little nervous when I first scheduled voice lessons with Melissa. She made the entire process simple and easy for me. I have been able to improve my tone, strengthen my breath support and I've gained immeasurable amounts of music theory knowledge. I look forward to my lesson each week and get excited about what she will teach me next.

We were having divorce issues and needed a summer activity. It was impossible to schedule something with my ex husband so I searched online and found Melissa. My daughter has been to 6 classes and absolutely has loved every single class. I love to hear my daughter sing downstairs and after 6 classes she wants to continue. Thank you for all that you have done and I look forward to more lessons with you. I will recommend you to all of my friends!

A few words from our students...




"My daughter took lessons from Melissa for 3 years and we only stopped because she moved out of town. We never found anyone else like her. She is a great teacher and really knows how to bring out the best in her students."

~Joanna P.


"I began taking lessons from Melissa after my first teacher felt unable to take me to the next level. A classmate recommended Melissa and I'm glad she did. I have learned so much and I have fun on each lesson too."

~Amanda J.


"Melissa began teaching my two girls when they were 5 and 6 years old. From day 1, they would not stop talking about their lessons with Miss Melissa. I noticed during the lessons that she really took the time to build up the girls confidence. As they got older the girls became active in school music programs and community theater. They always seemed to be a step ahead of the class because of the strong foundation they received in piano lessons. Melissa also helped my oldest prepare of her college music department audition where she was accepted with a scholarship offer to both her first and second choice schools. We highly recommend Melissa!"

Melissa is not only a sweet woman who is a joy to be around, but she is also a very talented artist and teacher. I took piano lessons from her, and she was so patient with me. It didn't take long to progress under her teaching. I would recommend her to my family and friends and any one wanting to learn piano and voice from an expert!

I just had my first lesson, and i'm very new to learning the piano, but I can tell that she knows her stuff. I gauge the effectiveness of a teacher by her ability to teach basic concepts. And Melissa is awesome at it! I highly recommend her!!

Very patient and easy to work with! I'm never intimidated when I step into her home.
