Melody teaches not only how to play a song but also how to read music and proper techniques for playing the instrument. Her detailed instructions are very helpful and she has helped my child improve his overall skills. My child enjoys her lessons.
Melody is a wonderful teacher! She has taught me for several years and I have made incredible progress ever since. She puts a lot of focus on the right technic and understanding all aspects of playing the cello. She is very flexible with her schedule and comes all the way to our place for the lesson. Melody is wonderful for somebody who wants to learn the cello and thoroughly understand all the aspects of playing and learning to read music, she is very kind but holds me to always do my best. Thanks for being an amazing teacher Melody.
Melody has been teaching my nine year old daughter since she was in kindergarten. And I cannot sing Melody's praises enough as a teacher. Melody is patient, thorough, and precise with her instruction. The cello is not an easy instrument to learn, but Melody's compassion and encouragement help kids develop a trust with her, which you will see pay off in the long run. Melody is a solid teacher and you will see your child thrive under her instruction.
Melody is fantastic! So friendly and warm, and explains everything in very clear ways. She's super helpful and encouraging.
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.Ok
