Practice often in short sessions….


Concise practice advice from our found Kathi
Practice often in short sessions so that you are fresh and retain everything you’ve learned. When you’re learning a new piece, practice short segments of the piece in one practice session, and immediately repeat troubled areas. Listen to yourself when you sing or play and be your own instructor or hear the words of your instructor as you practice. Record yourself so that you can hear yourself better for your final critique. And lastly, add color, dynamics and your own feelings to make the music yours!

Melody Music Studios put me on the trumpet FAST TRACK!


Trumpet Fast Track to Playing Well..

My experience with Melody Music has been something to remember. I sincerely loved every minute of it. My Trumpet teacher is one of the best and I have come to admire his passion for playing and teaching. I’ve learned so much in such a short time that it has become my passion as well. I went from barely making it through the C scale to mastering the chromatic scales from low A to high G. My sheet reading skyrocketed as well. Thanks Mark!!!

This is definitely one of the best decisions I’ve made relating to pursuing a dream of music. I encourage anyone and everyone to pursue their musical aspirations, it’s totally worth it.

Thank you Melody Music. You guys ROCK!!!
