Teach with us!

Applying at Melody Music Studios
Hello, thank you for your interest in teaching at Melody Music Studios. My name is Kathi Kerr, owner and founder of Melody Music Studios. I started MMS in 1989 from an overflow of my own students (piano), and soon began hiring instructors for all instruments and voice. My passion is seeing a student learn and grow. I believe in offering professional lessons taught in a fun and positive way, and I’m looking for enthusiastic instructors who love to teach like I do!Since Melody Music Studios takes care of policies, marketing, and billing, all you have to do is what you do best – teach!

Meet our administrative assistant Jaella

Jaella joined Melody Music Studios as a voice and piano instructor while attending college in 2013. She then graduated from Georgian Court University in Lakewood, NJ for a Vocal Performance in 2014. To earn money throughout her college career, Jaella worked as the assistant to the Music Department at Georgian Court University. She called alumni, prospective students, handed out and hung up flyers for recitals, and collected tickets/monetary donations during concert season. During concerts where she was expected to perform, she arrived early and already organized so that anyone who would be taking over once she was on stage was easily able to pick up where she’d left off. So in 2017, owner Kathi Kerr, seeing her talents not only as an instructor but her organization skills, along with a great personality, it was a slam dunk for her to join the office staff as administrative assistant. If you have any questions regarding signing up for lessons at Melody Music Studios, just ask Jaella!

Meet Lindy! Melody Music Studios’ creative assistant and Marketing Coordinator

Lindy grew up with musical parents and a mom that sang to her, and she knew all she ever wanted to do was sing. She took lessons in piano, violin and played flute in the marching band in high school. While attending John A. Logan College in Carterville IL, a community college where she majored in music, she worked at a chain of Christian bookstores, and wrote and recorded commercials. She found she had the personality and passion for the advertising industry along with her passion for music. Lindy was crowned Ms Volunteer at the college, receiving a scholarship, along with a vocal scholarship. She transferred and graduated in 1999 with a Vocal Performance and Music Industry degree from Middle TN University in Murfreesboro, TN. While attending MTSU, Lindy worked at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville as a tour guide, entertaining bus groups from all over the world. Lindy joined the staff at Melody Music Studios as a piano and vocal instructor in 2007, and was promoted to Marketing Coordinator in 2017. Lindy loves singing, acting, writing, painting, sales and being creative. She has the perfect passion for music and marketing that makes her the perfect choice at Melody Music Studios!

Meet Kathi! Our founder and a fabulous music instructor!

Kathi grew up in a musical family, with a mother who is a classically trained musician, and a father who plays the upright jazz bass by ear, so she had the best of both worlds-training and a good ear for improv. Growing up, Kathi regularly performed as soloist, as well as with her family, and knew early on that music was going to be her life! After high school, she studied for 2 years at Point Loma College for piano performance, than after a few years, transferred to The San Francisco Conservatory of Music in San Francisco, CA for another 2 years, studying under Julliard graduate, Mac McCray. Between colleges, Kathi performed, toured and recorded in a contemporary Christian band as keyboardist and background vocalist. While at the conservatory, Kathi started teaching private piano and voice lessons and found that she really enjoyed it. In 1989, she found herself with so many students, she decided to hire some of her advanced adult students to teach her overflow, and thus Melody Music Studios was started.
As Melody Music Studios began to grow, she decided to expand to all instruments and voice, and in 2001 opened multiple cities across the country. Kathi has a love for music, and believes that, while learning an instrument or voice should be challenging, it should also be fun and positive for the student as he/she begin their own personal musical journey.
