    Over the last twenty years, Melanie Webster has developed an extensive violin studio in the Santa Rosa/Sebastopol area.  Her studio has long been recognized for its tradition of overall excellence.  This is most evident at her  three public recitals held each year where all students prepare solo and ensemble works (large & small groups).  These major events are attended by enthusiastic parents, friends and family.

Melanie’s studio program consists of weekly individual instruction (for all but the youngest beginners) in addition to various degrees of group participation, generally corresponding to Suzuki performance standards.

Melanie’s long-term Suzuki training is registered at the national headquarters of the Suzuki Association of America (SAA) in Boulder, Colorado.  Founder, and director for seven years, of the Northern California Suzuki Institute, Melanie is also currently a member of the Music Teachers Association of California, the Suzuki Association of Northern California, the American String Teachers Association and the aforementioned SAA.  Melanie is also an authorized Pathways Charter School teacher for Northern California.

Melanie is active with the Chamber Musicians of Northern California.  Melanie is the former concertmistress of the Baroque Sinfonia of Santa Rosa and a founding member of the Cantabile String Quartet.  She is also an active member of the CMNC.
