Melissa Grover

General Music and 4th & 5th Grade Orchestra Teacher


Check out the Classical School music website with resources for elementary music classes, choruses, and orchestras. 


Welcome or welcome back for another exciting year of music-making! This will be my ninth year teaching at Classical School. I currently teach K-6th grade general music, as well as elementary school beginning and intermediate string orchestra. In the past, I also taught middle school choir and orchestra, plus private violin, voice, and piano lessons.

I grew up in Green Bay, WI and graduated from Green Bay East High School. I completed Suzuki violin and voice teacher training and earned my bachelor’s degrees in Choral and General Music Education, with a minor in Spanish, at the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point. In May 2020, I completed my MA in Educational Science through the University of Wisconsin–Oshkosh’s Teaching and Learning program.

I am married to Eli Grover, a former Classical School band teacher and current Exploratory and General Music Teacher in the Appleton Area School District. We love to spend time relaxing with family, play tennis and disc golf, and go to the dog park with our dogs Bella and Charlie. Our little girl, Zemira, will turn two in February!

I am proud to be an AASD teacher working hard to nurture every child, every day. I value Classical School and our sequential and comprehensive curriculum that is concurrent to teaching theories behind the Suzuki and other esteemed music methods. I hope to inspire students by sharing the joy of singing, playing instruments, dancing/moving and listening to music. Thank you for supporting music education at Classical School—I look forward to an artistic and encouraging school year!
