About Me

My name is Melissa and I have been in love with music since I was in the womb. My father taught me guitar at a very young age, and I've been playing and singing since I was a little one.  I'm a singer/songwriter and a musician an have been actively performing in San Francisco for the previous 5 years. I moved to North Carolina in search of nature and friendly folks. I love performing in all capacities. I'm in a band called Peachelope and often perform as vocalist with producer Nym. By day, I worked as a preschool teacher for 7 years, where I led many rhythm and music circle times with the kids. I love teaching music to children! My favorite instrument is the ukulele.

Melissa is the BEST! (10.00)

"I have taken many musician lessons with Melissa and it's always been warm and natural. I had never played a stringed instrument before her and the way she taught enabled me to pick things up a lot faster than I could've imagined. I was already playing a few songs after my first lesson. Learned skills through song examples which was helpful for the way I learn. Learning from her was like learning from a close friend (took my nerves away!). I highly recommend her and often contact her for webcam tutorials on things I'm confused about. Knowledgeable on all sorts of genres of music! "
