Overview

Hello! I'm Melissa Folzenlogen, a New York City musician with 20 years of musical education, training & experience. I've studied at Hunter College, Mannes, Manhattan School of Music, ISO, & Fiorello H. Laguardia High School. Throughout my years in New York, I've been fortunate enough to play Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, The Westin, & many other private events and recital halls. I work with students of all ages & musical styles, & have been taught & can teach the Suzuki Method, as well as music theory, ear training, & vocal coaching, all comfortably and at your own pace in a style that works for you! As a vocalist, I've performed my own music at venues all around the city, such as David Geffen Hall and Highline Ballroom, & have lots of experience recording both violin and vocals for projects of all genres.
Whatever you need, I'll do my best to accommodate you.

Nice to meet you!

Melissa is an outstanding violin and singing teacher to both our boys for almost two years now. Not only is Melissa very musically talented but she is also patient, caring and fun. Our sons look forward to their lessons with her every week
