Ray Melograne

I have a passion for writing, recording, performing and teaching music. If you want to cultivate your musical passion, I can help.
Teaching Philosophy

Studying music goes beyond just playing through a method book or preparing a festival solo. I did not realize the deficit in my own private studies until I attended college. My vision is to provide students with a complete educational experience. I design each lesson to be a well rounded musical study (covering technique, theory, history, analysis and practical application).


I have taught private lessons for 20 years and have been a music teacher in the NY public schools for the past 15 years.

I am also an active singer/songwriter and have released three original albums. I have a home recording studio which is used for both personal recording and professional client work.

I also spent a summer studying musical composition abroad in England, composing the music for a dance production (performed both in UK and US).
