Why choose RED?

Individual Focus

We take the time to get to know each student, their learning style, and what motivates them. We provide a postive, fun, and nurturing musical learning environment that challenges them and encourages them to take risks.


We have formed a supportive musical
community of students and parents that realize the positive impact learning music can have in their students lives and in those lives around them.

Skills for Success

We know that success is more than just learning the notes. We teach time management skills, goal setting, and proven techniques for realizing their own potential. These are skills they will be able to apply to more than just their musical dreams.

Our goal is to empower, educate, and inspire young minds through the gift of music.

We are so thankful because Paul Melcher helped Dominike, well, both of our girls, to discover their passion for music. He keeps helping Dominike grow with her voice. She is also so amazed about how he can play the piano, that she started taking piano classes with him hoping that one day she might play the piano as amazingly as he does.
Mrs. Chelsea Hart Melcher is always there to help Dominike or Alexa with any of their questions. Both of them help our daughters to keep growing in their music path. We love The Melcher family so much!!

Chelsea and Paul did so much to prepare me for college... Read more:

What I feel Paul and Chelsea did for me:

They pushed me to do more than I ever thought I could and encouraged me to try even though I was afraid. They taught me that I could do anything I set my mind to and showed me more about the music world than I ever thought existed. They always took the time to see how I was doing and consistently asked how the college auditions were going. Chelsea took a lot of time to run through practice auditions with me to help me feel prepared for the real auditions. I felt like (Paul and Chelsea) were very interested in my music and with me personally, which helped a lot.

…All of that time I never gave up and still continued working towards my goals. In the end I did get through all of the auditions and got accepted to many of the colleges including the college I will be attending in the fall.

Summer at RED: I was able to accomplish in a week, what generally would have taken me a month to achieve. Read more...

What students and parents thought about their Summer at RED experience:

The weeklong lessons made me feel more organized, as well as ready for the next day because the information was still fresh in my brain. -Keira

Hello! We loved the one week summer class which was done this summer! It was so much easier to work around other camps, activities, and our vacation. It also helped our daughter to learn more quicker vs waiting an entire week. It was great to see the progress she made in just one quick week by attending every day! Love it and highly recommend!

The weeklong lessons really helped me gain strength in my voice that I didn’t know I could accomplish and feel confident in the song I chose.

Annaliese loved the Red School of Music summer program. Attending a daily, hour-long lesson for a full week allowed her to really focus on making the vocal improvements Ms. Chelsea identified. We are very exited about the progress Annaliese made. From a parent’s perspective, the ability to continue voice instruction over the summer in a compressed schedule made working in other summer activities a breeze. We would highly recommend this experience!-Carolyn

In a week I received more immediate feedback on my voice, which allowed me to learn more about my tendencies -Rachel

I loved to see Ms. Chelsea everyday and know that everyday I was making progress with my song!-Ciara

The weeklong lessons were a great learning experience that was low stress. You learned what you wanted to learn in that week and retained details to help self improve day by day that would be hard to remember on a weekly basis. -Sarah


I feel I really benefited from my weeklong lessons. I was able to accomplish in a week, what generally would have taken me a month to achieve.For example, I felt like there was more time to get corrections because we didn’t have to go over things nearly as much. It also worked well with my schedule in the summer, so I could go on trips without missing a lesson.
