Melody Music Studios FIVE STAR review!

I enjoyed taking piano lessons from Melody Music. I’ve been a student there for approximately 7 yrs. My teacher Lydia really works hard with you to make sure you fully understand everything about playing the piano. Every year Melody Music hosts a recital, which is nice because it gives you & others a chance to see how well you has really accomplish over time. I will recommend them to anyone who has interest in learning how to play an instrument.

Instructor Tabitha gets a four star review!

Our violin teacher Tabitha does a wonderful job with my 6-year-old daughter. The first thing I noticed about Tabitha was that she spoke with my daughter as an equal, was honest with her about her progress, and made her feel comfortable right away. Tabitha pays attention to technique and is a wonderful violinist herself. I love it when she plays during the lesson! I would highly recommend Tabitha for new or experienced violin students.

How to establish a daily practice regimen for kids

Music is What Feelings Sound LIke


Once the beginner student (any age) begin to develop a skill, then they have something to practice. And learning to practice is something that is learned over time, the same as learning the instrument itself. Once the student is ready to begin a daily practice regimen, here is what I suggest:
*Keep the practice time realistic to the student’s age and level. Don’t expect a beginner student to practice for 30 minutes straight. It’s best to keep practicing at short segments, but often and consistent. If the goal is 30 minutes per day, the student can break it up into 2-15 minute practices, with a break in between. Once the student gets to the“tired” point, he/she is no longer retaining what is learned. By doing shorter practices often, will help the student learn
quicker. The suggested practice lengths will differ for each student, depending on their age and level. For beginners between the ages of about 7-9, the normal length of practice I suggest is 15-25 minutes, for an older child or adult beginner, it may be 30-40 minutes, and for more advanced levels, it may be 1-2 hours. These are only suggestions, as each
student may require more or less time before getting to their “tired” point.

Fifty Ways to Tour Without Getting in the Van is a guide to building a profile for you or your band without incurring tour expenses. It’s available in paperback at It’s a way to reach fans in creative ways without traveling or spending a fortune in marketing and advertising. The ideas in Fifty Ways can also be used in conjunction with touring, offering innovative concepts to increase a band’s visibility, perception and branding in tour markets.Whether you choose to get in the van or implement a virtual tour, it’s important to take a bit of time to consider the reasons you choose to present your music in a public forum. If stardom and money are your main impetus, reconsider your true objectives. The soul of music and the reason you make it should lie outside the scope of worldy intent. Presenting your music in a public forum is about connection not currency. Indulge your creative curiosity and be brave enough to dig into your own soul to discover why you make music and you’ll often be able to put together your own strategy of how or whether to tour. If you’re in a band, it’s a good idea to be sure all members are involved in open discussions of goals and objectives concerning physical or virtual touring, as a team mentality is crucial to the success of both.
