Relocating? We can find a great music teacher in your area…


Relocating? Let us find a perfect music teacher for you in your new area!
“I’ve been taking classes with melody music for over 2 years now, and I have been very happy. When I relocated from Atlanta to Boston, I simply spoke to Kathi and she was able to suggest us a teacher that was able to teach my son in-home, and as good as his piano teacher in Atlanta.
The thing I love with Melody music studios is that the teachers are active professionals, who are willing to start lessons with little kids.”

Make practice fun!


Make practice fun by encouraging a “dress rehearsal”. Drag out some fancy duds, sparkly shoes and crazy hats. Build a makeshift “stage” from cardboard and add accessories likes amps and speakers made of boxes. It’s a fun way to explore the backstage world of production.
