Light opera, folk, Italian, French, German and traditional repertoire.

About Melody
Are you looking to sing or play keyboard, work on material for your band, build your repertoire, sing or play in the church choir/band, audition for a production, become a better lead singer in your rock or pop band, overcome stage-fright or wanting to get to the next level? You have come to the right place!

My lessons provide students with an opportunity to deeply explore the voice, build confidence, and to develop healthy and effective singing practices, which can be applied to any style of musical singing and playing.

A well-rounded music education is very important and I have fun and educational resources for learning vocal technique, ear training, harmony, pitch matching and music theory.

I am very fortunate to have performed and studied Classical and Opera, musical theater productions, have sang in Rock, Pop, Country, R&B
bands and can bring that real-world experience into the lesson. The student will receive real hands-on knowledge about singing in a variety of environments and how to manage his/her vocal goals!

In addition to being vocally healthy, I encourage self-expression and enhance self-esteem in my students: singers of all ages, skill levels and styles. Plus, it has to be fun, otherwise why do it? Singing is a process and less about the end goal and we train the body, mind and use imagination and it's a very exciting process!

***My students regularly receive scholarships and placement in music schools and programs around the U.S., have won competitions, do well in auditions, are performing in successful bands and/or recording artists.

I am energetic and enthusiastic; actively promote values and traditional teaching practices coupled with the introduction of technology into the lesson. My experience as an educator is to share passion and talent for music with the next generation of musicians and outstanding communication skills. I really care about my students and provide the tools to help them reach their goals!

Degrees:
Bachelor of Music, minor in Psychology from Michigan State University
Master of Vocal Pedagogy from Oakland University

Here is some of my experience as a performer: I have sung Internationally at the renowned €œEisteffodd Music Festival€ in Wales, toured through Britain and performed at the Laupin Agile Cabaret in Paris. I was honored with a nomination to attend the prestigious Yale Cabaret Conference and worked with cabaret legend Julie Wilson and Manhattan Transfer founder Laurel Masse. Sung and performed roles with the Mid-Michigan and Detroit Opera Companies. Performed a production of Sleepwalkers€ with the Kari Margolis Brown Company at the O'Shaughnessy Theatre. I currently perform all over the Twin Cities with my own R&B/Soul Band, Melody and The Dramatics!€ Plus, I am a contract vocalist and perform in a variety of other projects, so needless to say, it is all a very awesome ride!

*** Lesson Details ***
My laid-back and fun approach allows for versatility and is tailored to meet the needs of the individual student. When studying the art of singing you are gaining skills, which build confidence.

When you understand what you'€™re doing and why, you bring more confidence to your performance. Progress is made with regular practice outside of lessons. Voice students record each private lesson through their devices and take notes in their own notebooks.

I have "warm-up" tracks which you can use in your car or at home and you will notice significant improvement once you start your routine.

Practicing is very important and I have great methods to teach students how to maximize their time and get the best results! I am privileged to have an opportunity to teach and very passionate about coaching a student to meet his or her musical goals!

Also, I have a Beagle named "Bacon" and he will always be very excited to see you, however he does calm down when you're in the studio. In addition, I have two cats, so please let me know if you have allergies or any special recommendations.

Thanks so much!
Melody

I've been taking lessons with Jeff for about a year and a half and he is a good teacher. He has been flexible around my schedule, always has new music for me, and has taught me a lot about music and singing. He gives good advice and feedback and my voice and vocal range have approved since I started taking lessons. I highly recommend Jeff for anyone looking for a great vocal instructor.

Roberta is amazing! I went to her for a little more than 3 years for voice (and piano for a little bit) and she is very helpful, skilled, friendly, knowledgable, and fun. She helped me get into my top choice college as a choral music major with a full tuition scholarship and supported me the entire way. Roberta knows how to work with any voice with any level of experience of any age. Not only is Robera a fantastic teacher; she is also very understanding and a great person to talk to.

In my almost twenty-five years of teaching experience, I have taught a wide range of students in age and levels: from high school to college, professional, adult and avocational. Because of this, I have the ability to teach each student based on their own individual needs. As a result, I have enjoyed a wonderful rapport with all my students, since I make them comfortable and help them feel a difference in their singing from the very first lesson. This way, there is an atmosphere of trust and ease so that students are free enough to explore and ask questions. Something that is an important part of my teaching is simplifying and clarifying the basics. Being able to grasp a concept is a confidence builder for students. Then, they can thrive and approach their practice sessions with joy. Therefore, they continue to make progress and are proud of the work they do. Most importantly, I like to create a positive and productive environment for the learning process, so that my students can ...

Professional opera singer trained at some of the most prestigious opera houses in the country. I am eager to pass on my knowledge of good vocal technique, my love of singing, and of performing. Seeing my students get out and perform with confidence, poise, and the tools to succeed vocally is the best reward I could get from teaching. Let's get working toward whatever goal you may have from the lofty pursuits of auditioning for jobs to just being able to simply enjoy the sound of your own voice when you are singing at home with your family.

About D'Ana
I am a professional opera singer and have been trained and performed in some of the most prestigious opera houses in the country. I do love performing but once I found teaching I realized how much joy I got from helping my students achieve their goals no matter how grand or how small. My honest opinion is that anyone can sing and that all should be given the opportunity to try!

As a vocal student, we will discuss what your goals are for our lessons together and what you hope to achieve in the long run. Students can expect improvements every week as you build upon the techniques and exercises I give you. I teach students to improve their breathing and tone production using the classical vocal technique and from there we will work on style and phrasing and overall performance of your piece. One common goal is to create a repertoire of song
s that the student can call upon at any time to sing with ease.

As I am still a working singer and will travel every few months to perform in a different concert or show. All of which is an attribute to my students as the more I learn in a professional setting, the more I can pass along to those I teach. Don't hesitate to ask if you would like to see my professional bio to get a better grasp of where I have worked in the country and the world.

My passions are Disney music, Broadway both classic and new, Opera, and really anything that can get your heart racing when you sing it. So let us get started on our musical journey! Looking forward to meeting you and to helping you unlock the singer you always had inside you.
