I am a voice and acting teacher specializing in musical theater and pop rock and other commercial forms of singing. I have training in all different acting techniques and I focus on audition and competition prep. I help performers fuse their acting and singing but can also focus on one aspect if the student so chooses. I work with many students on college auditions and thespian competitions as well. I teach all ages up to adults since I am also an adjunct faculty and have experience in teaching at the university level.

My daughter loved Melanie!
Sarah
Melanie is an absolutely incredible vocal teacher/coach. I noticed a change in my voice after just the first lesson. Her vast knowledge of the anatomy used to create vocal sounds combined with the techniques she teaches has definitely improved my voice. She taught me how to belt and showed me the difference between my belt and my mix, which was beyond helpful. She also taught me how to sing in my head voice in a healthier and more effective way. And on top of that, she has a mental library full of great song recommendations for my individual voice. Can't wait until our next lesson!

I honestly can't say enough things about how wonderful Sydney is. She teaches two of my children, one of whom is particularly difficult to teach, but manages to inspire and encourage while moving both kids forward with their singing. She's very kind but firm when she needs to be to make sure her student is benefitting from her instruction. Great experience all around!

Valerie A.
I found the instructor to be very patient and experienced. I am a beginner and have no experience with playing the piano and hopefully will learn from her experience.
Matthew
What can I say about Kalyse because there are not enough words to do so, however I will try and sum it up. Kalyse is truly gifted in many areas from acting to musical. Her acting skills are phenomenal and her voice is simply amazing on all levels. She is multitalented, innovative, assertive, and very caring. I would recommend anything on the spectrum for her.
Thandiwe Thomas
I’ve hired Kalyse as an actor multiple times. She’s also a great pianist and guitarist. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their instructor.

My strong background in Vocal Pedagogy includes a working knowledge of the anatomy of the vocal mechanism and the acoustical physics of sound production. These fundamentals can be applied for significant and often immediate improvement in sound quality both in sing and in spoken word. Targeted diagnosis of the issues and clear remedies are the name of the game. These lessons are for those that are looking to gain confidence and stamina for presentations at work, or for those looking to overcome speech difficulties.

About Lance

Ever been told that you’re "a little pitchy," or that you “just need to give it more support?” Tips like these often leave people frustrated because they don’t actually give anyone a plan for improvement. In my lessons we will focus on real, specific issues, and make sure you have a great plan for

My personal lessons with Lance have been extremely productive and in 2 months I have already greatly improved my singing. The creative space in my lessons have aloud me to feel more excited and confident about my singing. I have tried my fair share of voice teachers and Lance is by far my favorite and would strongly recommend. Personally I have never had an encouraging experience with voice lessons and Lance has helped me go so far out of my comfort zone and I am very happy with How much my singing has improved.
