Melody Stevens graduated from Mason Gross School of the Arts with a Bachelor's Degree, and obtained her Master's Degree from Westminster Choir College, Princeton, NJ. She was trained in all styles of music, from Pop to Classical, and has performed herself in all of those styles at some time in her career. She was the owner of her own music school, "Academy of Music on Main Street," in Central New Jersey for over two decades, where she perfected her early childhood and young adult teaching skills in piano and voice instruction. She has conducted school choirs, and directed musical theater productions, for students at the Middle School level as well. All of her musical experience culminates in a professional, meaningful teaching style that is universal across all genres. Her goal is always to have students make musical progress at each lesson in a way that inspires them to reach their full potential. In the words of her students and their parents, every student leaves her lessons feeling "uplifted."
