- Esther B.
I am an 81-year old woman who, as a child, dreamed of playing the piano. At age 78 I began to take lessons, but was unable to continue due to a family crisis. Then I met Melissa Kosubinsky. She has helped me to realize my dream by making it as important to herself as it is to me. I have found her to be an excellent teacher. She is knowledgeable, patient and supportive. I wouldn't trade her for anything.Nov 24, 2020

Growing up I received piano lessons for approximately 10 years. In the last year I received a piano and decided to start taking lesson's again. After struggling with several teachers found Melissa. Melissa has challenged me on technique, theory, and tools for me to use. She always comes to the lesson with new challenges for me which motivates me to show her and myself what I can accomplish in the next week. She is always positive, upbeat, encouraging, and gives you the help that you may need. I would recommend her for any level instruction that you are looking for from beginner to advance.Oct 15, 2020

Both my daughter (age 10) and I have started private lessons with Melissa. I have been surprised at how immediately connected we both felt with her. She has talked with both of us about our learning styles and goals. I am so impressed with the quality of instruction and how fun and personal it feels. Her teaching style is a great fit for us. It’s my daughter’s favorite zoom of the week and I feel inspired to pick up where I left off before the pandemic.Oct 3, 2020

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I usually teach in 4-week sessions at a time at a set day and time of the week. This allows for a structured schedule for parents, students, and the teacher. I find that, generally, adults benefit from a 1-hour class per week or every other week. Younger students, depending on their level and goal(s) benefit between 30 minutes - 1 hour per week.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?A typical process might look something like: the student sharing her piano/music experience, materials needed (if any), the student sharing likes and goals, what can be expected generally each lesson, discussing practice sessions and setting goals, answering any questions the student (and/or parents) may have.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'm a graduate from LaSalle University. I also received training in classical music from Settlement Music School in Abington, Pa.
