Melissa is, for me, an ideal voice coach.  She is encouraging, professional, works around, and with, personal  idiosyncrasies  and ensures that achievements, and forward momentum, are ongoing.  Both voice and confidence have improved through working with her.  Best of all? She makes it FUN.



It's really impressive! Often as a parent, you pay for lessons and think, "oh well, he enjoys it", but this is like BOOM! He is actually learning and growing before our eyes! You're the best!


I have been getting lessons with Mel for the last four years, I am constantly learning and growing. She encourages me to be the best singer I can be  both technically and as a performer - thank you Mel!
