- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+
- Teaching since:
I have been singing my entire life and started voice lessons at the age of 6, so I don't think it's ever too early to get started!
In addition to the many plays and showchoir programs I was involved in growing up, I have a BA in Theater/ Television from Pepperdine University, where I did numerous musicals and performances, as well as coached several productions.
Since being in LA, I have studied with some of the most prominent vocal coaches here, whose clients include Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Madonna, and more.
As a performer and artist myself, I felt that I had more than just the technique to teach, I have the experience. Anyone can be an amazing singer, but it's that extra "it factor" that will get a singer noticed. In my 5000+ hours of stage experience, I knew this was something I wanted to focus my efforts on with my students, in addition to making you feel your absolute best about your instrument.
By the second lesson, in addition to exercises to help strengthen your voice, I will begin coaching you with the songs you're working on! Depending on your level of experience and purpose for the song (i.e: audition / performance) I will also coach you on stage presence and performance.

Melanie is a true talent at figuring out exactly what you need for your specific voice and making it stronger! Love working with her.
Melanie helped me prepare for an audition and I felt so much more confident going in because we had worked together. Will definitely see her again! And if you go to her house she has really cute corgis! :)
I have seen a vast improvement in my voice since working with Melanie, more than any other coach I've had in the past. She will make you a better singer.
Wow! 5 stars is not enough! Working with Melanie taught me so much about performing and being comfortable with my voice. She takes the time to make sure you get it, and is a really great coach.
