Our family cannot say enough about Melissa! WONDERFUL! She is a gift to piano students. My son has taken lessons with her for almost a decade now and has truly developed as a musician due to her teaching skills. She works with students (at their level) to develop their confidence and joy in music. Not only is she a top-rate teacher and musician, but she is also an absolute delight to work with! She blends music professionalism with care and flexibility for students, which is a rare blend. Melissa has our highest recommendation! -- Amy B.
As a retired senior who likes music, I knew nothing at all about it, I was referred to Melissa when I suddenly wanted to know more. Much to my surprise, after 1 and 1/2 years I'm actually playing the piano...and it sounds pretty good. I highly recommend Melissa. She is patient, kind, affirming, and knows just when to push me to try more without undermining my self-confidence. And she makes it fun! - Steve D.
Melissa is a wonderful tutor! I am an older student and really appreciate her skill and patience in helping me as I relearn how to play the piano. I highly recommend Melissa as a piano teacher/tutor to young and old alike! --Margaret E.
Melissa is organized, thoughtful, and encouraging. When her students struggle, she has fantastic ways of breaking down what they are learning so that it makes sense. Every student I have seen her work with has always felt supported by her, even if they did not feel confident in their abilities. She is also hilarious, which creates a comfortable environment for everyone as she makes learning fun. Finally, she takes the time to understand what her students need, which is arguably her best strength as a teacher. --Hannah D.
Melissa relates well to students with her uplifting and magnetic personality. --Meredith E.
Melissa's personality is open, kind, and supportive. She communicates clearly and with a positive attitude and connects with people quickly. --Justin C.
