Hi there, I’m Melody!

I have been playing piano since I was 8. I graduated from Ithaca College with a bachelor of music in performance in 2017. I love children, teaching, designing, and making music!

I have been teaching piano since 2006. In college, I taught private piano lessons through the teaching intern program under the supervision of pedagogy professors. I also worked as the keyboard tutor for two years.

I have group teaching experience in a college setting, and I also had the opportunity to assist Opus Ithaca School of Music in developing their piano literacy program.

Services Offered

I offer weekly 30-minute, 45-minute, or 60-minute private lessons. I provide feedback on repertoire and introduce new skills and concepts.

I offer performance classes where students can practice performing for each other and giving/receiving constructive feedback. I also offer group classes focused on developing theory and keyboard skills.

I offer coached practice sessions scheduled on an individual basis. Instead of a typical lesson, I will just help a student practice! Additionally, I offer a 5-day morning summer camp full of fun, educational music activities.
