    My daughters love lessons with Melissa T. Music! As first-time piano students, she engaged them and made them feel comfortable. She consistently encourages them to do their best and sets an environment where effort and trying are celebrated. Excellent lessons in a loving environment. So glad we are with Melissa T. Music Lessons.

    I started taking lessons from Melissa because I had always wanted to sing in the choir, but for various reasons I wasn’t able to. I knew that I needed to take lessons to build up my confidence for the audition and work on my technique. When I met with Melissa for my first lesson, she was so down to earth and patient. I think it took me like 10 minutes to sing in front of her! I was so nervous, but she simply smiled and said, “You’re really brave.” That moment really helped me to find the courage to sing! Her continued encouragement throughout our lessons was so vital! And after taking her 4 week course, I auditioned for the choir. I was nervous, but once I completed the audition, I found out that I had been accepted onto the choir- a desire fulfilled! Her lessons are solid and easy to follow! If you need to work on your technique and/ or build confidence, I definitely recommend that you work with Melissa! I had a great experience and I hope to come back in the Fall!

    Melissa's lessons are creative and really engaging to all ages. I love the dedication and passion she clearly has for teaching music. My kids have learned so much and grown in just the short time we have been with her.

    Melissa is excellent at what she does. My 3 year old son loves coming to his piano lesson. Melissa is very patient with him and is an all around great person. My son and I always look forward to our Thursday evening with Melissa. I can't wait till he masters the piano.
