I am a music teacher within Anne Arundel County Public Schools. I teach chorus, music theory, piano, and guitar. I provide private lessons on all levels of voice, beginning guitar, piano, and music theory. I can offer lessons with a combination of music theory and voice for someone who is hoping to learn how to read music.
I graduated with my bachelors degree in Music Education and a masters degree in educational leadership. I have been a full time teacher for 4 years. I have also spent a summer studying with a professional Opera Singer in Italy.
Fostering a love and excitement within my students. I became interested in music as a middle school student and I support the pivotal role that the arts play in the lives of young students.
Melissa is a great instructor. She has a lot of educational experience and therefore properly layers the methodology to support instruction. She also has an excellent voice, I highly recommend her!
Melissa is quick to respond and organized with her lesson structure. I took beginning piano and voice with Melissa. She will work with you online or in person. I felt Melissa spent a lot of time on foundational concepts, including music theory and pedagogy. Melissa makes lessons fun and I really recommend her!
