About The Music Staff . . .
Mary Ann Medlin was the founder and director of The Music Staff. It was established in 1985 as a private music school located in the Western Branch section of Chesapeake. For 30 years, The Music Staff provided the community with vocal and instrumental lessons, a Rock Band, summer camps, and Early Steps in Music™ classes for preschool children both on sight and in local preschools and daycare centers. Early Steps in Music™ is an original curriculum created by Christine Butler.
In July of 2015, The Music Staff "downsized" from its original location to a three room music suite.Presently we offer private piano, violin and classical guitar lessons. Mary Ann Medlin continues to be active in the teaching community through TMTF (Tidewater Music Teachers Forum), the local chapter of Virginia Music Teachers Association and Music Teachers National Association, and is an adjudicator and local chairman for the National Guild of Piano Teachers. These professional organizations offer students opportunities to further their music education and prepare for a lifetime of enjoyment and appreciation of music.
Please join us as we nurture music in the very young, teach and develop music skills to students of all ages, and instill music appreciation to all!
The Gift of Music Lasts a Lifetime!
