INSTRUCTOR

Meliaty (Melly) Oey

Melly was born and raised in Indonesia where she taught music for over 20 years. She taught under the Yamaha Music Foundation in Japan for ten years and taught private piano and keyboard lessons in elementary schools as well.  Her students ranged from young children to seniors.  Melly loved helping her students reach their goals and prepare for local and international festivals, concerts and competitions.

Melly learned music at Yamaha Music School, Indonesia where she earned Advancement Examination Fundamental Certificate, Advancement Electone Performance Certificate, and the Teachers Training Course Certificate. She also took piano lessons and learned music theory at the Royal Music School in Jakarta.

Soon after arriving in Vernon in 2004, Melly found there was a need to “fill the gap” for keyboard lessons.  She has been teaching keyboard at the Vernon Community Arts Centre ever since.

Melly believes with just a few lessons, anyone can experience the joy of playing music. Playing electric keyboard is fun, simple, and students like to explore different sounds and background music to accompany each song they learn.  Her senior students especially appreciate the lightness of the keys and find it easier on their hands and fingers compared to playing a piano.
