Testimonials

Some of my lovely current, and former, students have shared their thoughts about music lessons with me for you to peruse here.

Melissa has been a brilliant teacher for the past couple of years and has opened up fantastic opportunities in our music centre such as brass ensemble. We’ve all enjoyed having Melissa as our teacher and she’s taught us all to our potential.

Astrid (trumpet student)

Thank you so much for all you have taught Sam on the trombone. We have really seen huge progress in his playing and in his passion for playing! He has thoroughly enjoyed his lessons with you and we are very sad that it is time for you to go to pastures new.

Louise, mum of Sam (trombone student)

Melissa taught my son the trombone. She was an amazing teacher who understood how he worked and proceeded to build up his confidence and as a result moved him up through his grades. He thoroughly enjoyed all his lessons. Can't recommend Melissa enough!

Carolyn, mum of Isaac (trombone student)

Our son Joseph (11) has been learning with Melissa for about 18 months now, and has come on brilliantly, passed his grade 4 and is now working towards grade 6. Melissa is really patient and fun, and Joseph genuinely looks forward to his lessons with her, whether in person or via Zoom. Melissa's lessons, together with Wantage Silver Band, are a magic mix and has really given him confidence in his playing. Thank you!

Joy, mum of Joseph (trombone student)

Before I started with Melissa, I had little knowledge of my instrument, despite having
attained grade 5. In the 3 years that I have been taught by Melissa, with her vast knowledge
and experience, I have learnt so many techniques which have massively improved my skill in
playing. Alongside this, my reading and
knowledge of music, as well as my interpretation, have all improved under Melissa's tuition,
and I will be taking my grade 8 in a few months time.
I have always really enjoyed the lessons, as she is prompt, focussed, attentive and is very
approachable and friendly. I would definitely recommend Melissa's tuition to anyone who
is learning or developing their skill in playing a brass instrument.

Alastair (trombone student)

My son finds it hard to stick with a hobby, however, Melissa patiently managed to inspire him to practise and continue to play the trumpet year after year. I would thoroughly recommend Melissa Brown Music Tuition.

Karl, dad of Lewis (trumpet student)

My daughter has only recently started lessons with Melissa but the difference in my daughter's confidence is already on the up. Melissa is very patient and is brilliant at knowing how to get the best out of each session. Thank you Melissa for being such a brilliant teacher.
