Great First Lesson! My son was nervous but she made him feel very comfortable. I really think he is going to learn a lot from Melissa. We are excited to see what he is going to learn. Also, we had some trouble getting connected and someone from McCarthy called and helped us! Great First Lesson!

Great teacher Ryan is a truly excellent piano teacher. He is patient, knowledgeable, and makes the lessons a pleasure. He is also a great pianist and demonstrates on the keyboard how the pieces should be played.
I also love the McCarthy website. The technology is state of the art and not having to drive to and from a lesson is great. Kevin McCarthy is also extraordinarily responsive and answers any and all questions.

Melissa is great for all skill levels I would say I am at an intermediate level on the piano and it is more difficult to find a good teacher to take me to the next level. Thankfully, I found Melissa. She has helped me more in the last 2 months than I have been able to doing it on my own in the last 2 years! She pays special attention to the fundamentals which are the building blocks for all songs. She is very patient and encouraging. I really look forward to my weekly 45 minute lesson. I learn so much every week! I would highly recommend Melissa for anyone wanting to learn to play the piano at any level!
