Personality rating: outgoing

A kind and encouraging teacher…

Melody Music and Mrs. Aguilar were awesome!

Mrs. Aguilar was very flexible, patient and accommodating to our needs. She is a fantastic teacher. Shashank had fun learning from her. Her cheerful smile, even when slightly under the weather, gave encouragement to Shashank to continue with his work.

Melody Music Studios is extremely flexible…


Lou, my drum instructor , was great. I am a beginner and he had great patience and was able to explain concepts clearly. He’s also a great guy and fun to take lessons from.

The company was easy to deal with, flexible in arranging around my schedule, and courteous.

I’d recommend both highly.

Happy kids!

Melody Music process and instructor

Finding Melody Music easy and their response time was ideal. I found their web site and was able to submit my information and interest and received a response with available teachers in my area quickly. We needed a new teacher to come to our house during after school hours and it works perfectly. Our instructor Stacie is everything we read and more – she loves children, is extremely patient and lives nearby which is a bonus. We have weekly lessons with her for about a month now, and our boys are happy with our new set up.

An “exceptional” experience with Melody Music Studios

In-home drum lessons

I’ve had an exceptional experience with Melody Music Studios! They got me up and running with a seasoned drum teacher in no time. They made sure I was completely satisfied with my coach, his teaching method, and schedule. I’ll be sticking with Melody Music Studios for all of my family members’ music lessons!

Our instructor Cherie is a treasure to her students

Cherie and Melody Music Studios are simply amazing!!!

My son started taking piano lessons this year with Cherie, and she is just amazing. From the very first moment you meet Cherie, you will be instantly won over by her absolute love of what she does and warm personality. At the end of his first lesson he didn’t want to leave and he looks forward to going every week. Melody Music Studios is at the top of my list for one of my best experiences with any of my kids extracurricular activities, and I have four children so there are quite a few to compare! Kathi does a great job of hiring great instructors and every interaction you have with her will be simple and enjoyable as well.
