  • Linda Austin

    She is very patient and easy to understand. You can tell that she loves teaching.

  • Rebecca Adams

    Melody Day goes beyond the basic instruction level and makes sure you have the skills you need to go out and be successful. After just a summer of lessons with Melody, I still use the techniques she taught me. She has the talent of a performer and the heart of a teacher.

  • Leah Forsberg

    Its a joy to know Melody Day! I've enjoyed having her teach both of my children in singing. They have both grown so much in their abilities in singing which I know they will keep with them always.
