I would like to change the menu to above the header, but I’m too much of a newbie at php to attempt it. I created a child theme for my customizations. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

No need to worry about it, this option was already built and an update will be available later today.

Thanks, Vlad! I updated the theme and chose that option but it didn’t work. Was there something else I needed to do?

Nope, you might have some caching issues. Also, as it says there the change is visible after you save and leave the customizer. Can I see a link to your website please?
