I can't stress enough how music is supposed to be fun!  It is a healthy outlet which teaches kids and adults alike the joy of interation with a group of people and can carry out in all kinds of aspects in life.  Learning does not have to be boring and with music it is one of the most sacred and treasured things that we have as humans.  I focus on trying to inspire a student and have them look forward to their next lesson.

I am a classically trained singer with a Master's Degree in Vocal Performance who lives, performs, and teaches in New Orleans. I frequently perform professionally in several genres of music, including opera, jazz, musical theatre, and pop. I also have several years of experience teaching in all of these genres. I sing with the New Orleans Opera and St. Cecilia's Asylum Chorus, in addition to fronting my jazz band, the Melanie Gardner Quintet, which performs regularly on Frenchmen Street and around the city. This past year I performed in French Quarter Fest, Voodoo Fest, and premiered a new opera with the New Fangled Opera Festival. In addition to teaching in my private home studio, I also work at Encore Studio of Dance, Music and Theatre in Harahan, LA, and have taught voice lessons at Creating U Modeling and Talent Agency in Covington, LA.

For beginners, we never start on the drumset. Rudiments and technique are always the first step. I like to show a student how to hold the sticks, and what movements not to make. I prefer starting with what not to do because that allows the student to find a method that works on his/her own - which is often extremely effective. Once basic technique has been obtained, I will recommend a method book - usually Mitchell Peters's Intermediate Snare Drum Studies, though it depends on the individual's needs. For adults and advanced students, I recommend Gary Chester's The New Breed. While working from this book, I like to incorporate the student's musical tastes into the lesson. Often I'll assign a specific song for he/she to learn and will pick up the guitar or piano while they play it. I strongly believe that the balance between strict, intense practice from a method book and fun, creative jamming is the key to learning.

  I have been seriously studying and playing music for more than 30 years. Regardless of my schedule or where my career has taken me, I have found time to perform and develop as a musician through private instruction and participation in ensembles; it’s a passion, not a choice.

I like to focus my lessons based on the needs of the student. For beginener students (younger) I like to start out by playing and teaching them simple songs and melodies that will be easy to  remeber and that will start to develop the fundamental knowledge of the guitar. From this point it will easier to learn more songs, creating a repetoire, and gradually move to more complicated music. For older or intermediate students I like to focus on music that they are persoanlly interested in and build the lessons from there. Learning songs that they like will fuel their interest, keeping them motivated and enyoing the lessons. In addition to this I work with exercises to develop a good technique to facilitate their playing and be able to play more challenging songs. For more advanced students I like to work scales, arpeggios and chord forms. This will be done to further the knowladge of the instrument and practice improvisations methods, to be able to practice soloing and improvising

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
