My musical life began during the "folk boom" of the 1960's. I began songwriting and performing during my high school years. Later I was a member of a folk-rock band called The Bean Angels. We preformed and recorded in the Iowa City, Iowa area. Later I attended Montana State University where I studied music education. My training included: piano skills, music theory, music history, aural perception, conducting, and vocal pedagogy. I have several decades experience in teaching. I have taught guitar, piano, voice, and ukulele, and have directed a children's choir.

With almost 20 years of music and theater related experience, and over 10 years as a vocal coach, I start each day fresh with a desire to pass on my passion for the arts.
I have acquired my Bachelor of Music Degree in Voice Performance from Mason Gross School of the Arts in 1997, and am currently working towards my Master of Secondary Education Degree. Along with my traditional schooling, I have taken several Master Classes in Acting Technique and Voice-over.
As a versatile individual, I have had the opportunity to hold a number of professional roles including Drama Teacher, Modeling and Television Instructor, and Private Vocal Coach. I have directed, choreographed, musical directed, and coached many individuals and groups within multiple organizations and age levels. Through these experiences, I have been fortunate enough to educate a diverse group of students, who functioned below-, on-, and above grade level.
My lifelong desire is to be able to share my love of music and theater. God has blessed me with both a love for music and the arts and a desire to teach others about the incredible gift that we have been given. My goal is to instill a sense of music appreciation and performing arts integration, while at the same time teaching students about the technical aspects of music and theater. Through music we are able to express ourselves and our compassion for others.
As a performing artist, I have toured many areas of NJ, DE, and PA, and have now expanded into VA. I have also toured Europe in England, Holland, and Germany with a production of Godspell. My credits are many and each role is unique. I have directed, music directed, and choreographed various productions, and my experience expands from the stage to film; including a performance in a chorus of back-up singers with Rosemary Clooney and Debbie Boone at the Valley Forge Music Fair. Currently, I am the lead singer for my band "End of Silence", and will be touring this coming year. We are looking to record soon.
I continue to perform and study current trends to keep up with the popular demands of the youth. Staying in the performing world is essential to providing the most up to date information and trends to my students.
I look forward to each and every lesson, and love to see my students shine. It is amazing to see the spark in a students eye as he or she follows his or her dreams. I look forward to teach your son, daughter, or yourself and passing on my passion to fulfill those dreams.

Melissa began singing in a church choir at the age of four and has been "hooked" ever since. After years of performing in various choirs and taking lessons herself, she went on to earn her Bachelor's degree in vocal performance at Illinois Wesleyan University and her Master's at Illinois State University. Meanwhile, Melissa was also studying piano from childhood through college. Now in her 21st year of playing, Melissa loves to teach beginner and intermediate pianists in addition to young singers. She is a newcomer to the DC area, and has previously lived, sung, and taught in Illinois, Indiana, and Vienna, Austria.
Melissa has performed on both the undergraduate and graduate level (and beyond). Her experience includes operas, operettas, recitals, musicals, and choirs. She has performed in venues ranging from the Indianapolis Opera to the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Over the years she has performed in the United States, Canada, England, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Finland. She also studied piano for many years, and has experience as an accompanist and vocal coach.
Melissa started teaching during her senior year of college when she took her first vocal pedagogy course. Teaching has been an important part of her schedule ever since. She has taught privately, through various community schools, through several national companies, and she served as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at Illinois State University for two years. Thus, she has experience teaching all ages and skill levels. Her students have ranged from beginners to university music majors, from age 4 to age 72.
Other than her pedagogy training and the typical university diction and literature curriculum, she also took 14 years of French, and lived in a German-speaking country for the better part of a year studying the language. Her knowledge of diction and language issues is extensive. This, combined with her comprehensive training in music theory, history, and repertoire, gives her a vast reserve of knowledge and resources for her teaching.
