Welcome to the I  Music Lessons Website!

Voice and piano lessons are available for all ages, levels, and styles of music. In an environment that is both nurturing and stimulating, music teacher Dr. Melanie Birnbaum helps her students to discover their musical abilities. Whether you are 5 or 75 years old it is never too late to start studying music.

Musical studies show that people who study music are healthier, happier, smarter, more self-confident, and more stress-free. In today's hectic and fast-paced world it is a powerful tool that can be utilized to cope with life's daily issues.

Both singing and playing the piano are useful outlets and a wonderful way to enjoy life. It does not matter if you want to perform at Carnegie Hall, appear on American Idol, grace the Broadway stage, or just sing in the shower or play for friends and family; the enjoyment of being a musician is limitless. It is a gift that will be with you for the rest of your life for you to enjoy every day!

The piano is an instrument that is wonderful for young and old. It helps with math skills, focus, memory, and concentration. It has been a scientifically proven to help keep the brain active, stimulating both the left and right sides of the brain- sort of a "gymnastics" for the brain.

Studying the voice is a truly exciting experience. The voice is the only instrument that is part of your body. No two people have the same voice. This creates a feeling of uniqueness and can foster self confidence and individuality.

Dr. Birnbaum encourages her students to embrace and find their own special voice. You can emulate your favorite singers but you should maintain and respect your own true voice. It is one of a kind and not to be reproduced by anyone. What a magical gift!

Learning to sing will help you express yourself and give you a freedom of spirit.

And as the song says, "Make your own kind of music" and enjoy the journey!
