Kim Austin Testimonial

Dr. Kimberly Austin, Assistant Professor of Early Childhood Education

As a parent and a Child Development professional, I have the utmost respect for Melody. Our daughter has been taking piano lessons for two years. I am continually impressed with the quality of instruction my daughter receives, however I am more impressed with Melody's knowledge of appropriate activities and expectations for young children. Our daughter's positive experience with music education will be beneficial for a lifetime.

We are proud parents of a student of the Plucky Pianista! Our daughter Sydney has been studying wth Melody for a little over 4 years. Melody manages to bring out each student's strengths to let them shine during performance recitals. Sydney has quickly learned solo songs, as well as duet masterpieces that showcase her skills she has learned during the year. At age 11 we are astounded at how much Sydney's playing has improved and grown. Her performance has brought us to tears more than once. We owe her personal growth in piano to Melody. We cannot thank her enough!
