Private Lessons with Mel​ 

"We have been with Mel for 3-years, so I think that says a lot about what my family thinks about him...He is very patient with my son Sam...Mel also has been  able to accommodate our schedule on many occasions on short notice...My son absolutely loves being taught by Mel, he has said to me in the past he would be very upset if he had to find another teacher. Thank you Mel..." (B. Winfrey and S. Winfrey, Parent & Student)

"I'm involved in different bands at school. Lessons with Mel are very flexible and applicable to the material I'm working at school. We work on reading, hand/foot technique, grooves, independence, exercises, rudiments, fills...You name it! Whatever it is, Mel is able to custom-make the lesson, so I can do better on my performances at school...From jazz to rock, concert to snare, Mel was always a big help!...Even when he didn't know the specific answer to some of my questions, he made it a point to find the answer together..." (D. Noe, Student)

"...Mel has always been a positive influence to our son. His passion and love for teaching is inspiring...It's very difficult to find music teachers that are willing to work within the student musical goals. That requires a teacher with enough structure to help in the development of musical skills, but flexible enough to incorporate practical lessons. Mel is that kind of teacher..." (J. Noe and J. Noe, Parents)
