Quad Cities July 2016 Teacher Feature: Melinda Leasman
By West Music Company
7/6/2016 8:00:00 AM
Melinda Leasman has been teaching piano and violin since 2010. In 2011 she began teaching at QC Rock Academy and in 2012, she received her BA in music from St. Ambrose and began teaching here at West Music Quad Cities. She started playing piano when she was 8, and when she was 10, she started violin. She is currently working as a Dental Assistant for MyoTech Dental. She also is playing keys in a band called Tambourine. 

When asked about her hobbies and interests, she responded “Raising my beautiful daughter Alita. Spending as much time outside as possible: Hiking, kayaking, long walks on the... Wait never mind I live in Iowa. “ 

She is very excited about the opportunity to see Paul McCartney live in August and hopes it will be as inspirational as seeing Aretha Franklin wailing it out on stage in Sioux City in 2015. Melinda is quirky, outgoing and very fun.  She loves teaching and works hard to make her student love what they do. She loves that moment when the student’s eyes light up and they really grasp a new concept or technique for the first time and how they really fall in love with their instrument as they progress and understand their instrument.

You can find Melinda on Facebook at Facebook.com/leasmanmusic.
