I have greatly enjoyed Melanie's investment with my child. She has loved taking lessons as well as learning the art of singing and songwriting. She has helped my daughter to grow greatly and I am so happy that we have found her! I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Melanie did a phenomenal job of giving me tailored instruction to where I wanted to go with my voice. The tools she gave me in our lessons have helped me produce the strength I'm looking for in my unique sound. And I love her bright and joyful attitude as she teaches. Such a great experience!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCLM Melanie is Awesome!
I have not been singing in awhile, but just a few lessons with Melanie and I can't wait to sing. Since working with Melanie, my voice has developed a better tone and strength. I feel much more confident in my ability. Melanie focuses on exactly what my voice needs to develop into a much more professional sound. I look forward to my next lesson and know something tremendous will come out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CurlyGav Melanie is an awesome teacher!
I had the pleasure of learning from Melanie when she directed and taught a small performance group. When the group had to learn many difficult parts and songs, Melanie always was extremely patient with us and really took her time to explain the "why" behind her direction. She is an excellent, technically strong singer and an excellent communicator. She makes sure you understand what you are doing with your voice which is so important! She definitely brought out the best in the performance group!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flores11 Melanie A. is an extraordinary teacher!
Of the many music teachers out there, I would have to say that Melanie is one with a unique ability to get students from any background to really understand what it is they need to and learn. To begin, Melanie's upbeat and bright, but professional personality is one that easily clicks with all types of students, making it easy to learn. She is so patient and kind, but just strict enough to get us to do what we need to do. I have seen her sing several times and her great vocal talents and stage performances allow her to give honest, professional, and needed pointers that help students improve (but never in a harsh way). I personally observed this from our band sessions where she is able to teach and give performance advice to a group of students that has greatly improved our ability to be able to be on stage. As a guitar player, she has given me pointers that slightly pushes me out of my comfort zone, but as bettered my stage performance.Just as she capable of teaching groups, she is an excellent one-on-one teacher. It is never hard to ask her for extra help or assistance as her genuine love for singing and music is what fuels to want others to have the same love for it as well. She is always encouraging and constantly reminds you of your abilities to make sure you are never feeling discouraged. Having her as a mentor will never fail to improve your skills in music (whether it be singing or performing on stage) and build your confidence.

I had been attempting to learn to "sing" by myself for years, but to no avail. I decided to give traditional lessons a try, and found this site. After looking in my area and reading other's reviews, I figured I'd take the plunge with Melanie.
Wow. Melanie was great. She was welcoming and she made me feel at home, even though singing in front of someone was a fear of mine. We started out with simple warm ups and practices, which actually taught me more than I had ever known already, and moved on to songs!
I didn't get to spend much time with Melanie, because I moved, but the two months we worked together greatly helped my abilities. I don't feel ashamed of my voice.
She taught me how to not only sing, but listen.
If you haven't already selected her as your instructor, what are ya waiting for?
