In 1989 Malena started teaching piano and tutoring in French and other subjects, and Malena's Music Lessons was born!
She continued to teach music as a hobby until 2018, when she realized that there are few teachers in the area who can effectively work with people who have disabilities, and this could be something to really bless the community!
In January, 2019 Malena and Malena's Music Lessons moved to Limerick, Maine, establishing a music studio & functional waiting room and truly becoming part of the local community. Early 2020 saw the transformation to Malena's Music Lessons & More, offering more homeschool & life enrichment classes!
We are a small in-home studio. 2 attached rooms in the apartment are the studio and classroom. If you're not comfortable with an in-home studio, request online classes. :)
We believe strongly that everyone should be able to learn and grow, regardless of ability or disability. We have extensive experience working with children and adults with learning disabilities, developmental or intellectual disabilities (including Autism), anxiety, trauma, and physical deformities.
We now offer music lessons, homeschooling, & life enrichment classes! Whether you're a just a beginner or an advanced student needing guidance in a particular area, let's explore learning opportunities together! :)
Who's the cat? Baby Girl is our studio mascot! If you're allergic to cats, we may be able to offer your classes online. :)
Our homeschool classes have small sizes, always 6 students or less, except band and chorus which allow for 10. Some have an online attendance option as well.
