Melissa Ludwa

Music Together Lead Teacher / Marvelous Music

Melissa Ludwa holds a Masters of Education in School Counseling and is an Early Childhood Music Specialist. She completed her Certification Level II training in 2018 with the founders of Music Together and loves using her knowledge and passion to create opportunities for making music with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers (and their important adults!) in the greater Kalamazoo area.

Melissa’s solo and ensemble work has ranged from jazz to folk, classic choral masterworks to small chamber ensembles in Indiana, Ohio and Michigan. Highlights include performing with Bobby McFerrin and being a founding member of the Cleveland Chamber Choir as well as master classes with Diana Krall, Harry Connick, Jr., Take 6, and Rockapella. However varied her professional singing experiences, it’s evident she truly enjoys making music that engages the child in all of us. Melissa’s earliest musical memory is of her mom singing “Kookaburra” as a lullaby, so perhaps most importantly, she still sings lullabies nearly every evening to her own boys.
