I have a passion for teaching people to sing to the best of their ability with the instrument they have been given! I want to teach others to sing like THEM, not like someone else or in a certain style, but to unlock their potential! There aren't shortcuts, but we can be relaxed, comfortable, and laugh on the journey to improvement! This is first and foremost a safe space to make mistakes and learn the correct way to use our bodies to sing. I have a bachelor's degree in music and performance from the University of North Georgia and have been teaching lessons for over eight years with students of all ages and backgrounds. I am excited to share what I have learned to help YOU sing to the best of your ability!

About Melissa G.

I am a professional musician who has held multiple positions as director of music at churches and has taught individual voice lessons with students with ages ranging from 5-92. Life is hard, let's learn music together in a way that builds us up. I believe that everyone with the singing bug has a diva waiting to be born and developed so they can shine!

I am currently a content creator, a private voice teacher, and the mother of a 5-year old. I would love to help you work toward your personal and professional goals with music goals in mind! My passion is for helping others use the instrument they were born with, both in the care of the voice and using it to express themselves beautifully, efficiently, and correctly.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, or if you would like to hear a sample of my performances!

P.S. I know we are all going through hard times, and music makes everything in life a little more bearable. I am offering prices which reflect our current situation. Same quality lessons, just a little more affordable in these hard times. I'd rather make music with you and see less gain, because it means we get to bring some joy to one another!

Melissa is such a gifted singing teacher! She has helped with strengthening good technique, and has identified weak areas. Melissa is gentle, yet direct, in teaching how to change your technique so you can have confidence in using your own voice! Very happy!!

Melissa is an awesome teacher. She makes all of her lessons fun in an educational way. She understands and believes in your ability right from the start and wants me to do the same. I look forward to growing into a more confident singer with her every week.

I had my first singing lessons with Melissa and she was really good at making me feel at ease. She helped me reach my goal of successfully preparing for a music exam. My request was slightly different but Melissa accommodated my needs and adjusted her approach accordingly. Thanks to her, I managed to progress quickly and I had the added bonus of having actually enjoyed my lessons.

She was very flexible with my hectic schedule and made accommodations. She helped both of us to feel comfortable and was clear in her explanations and what she needed us to do. She was also willing to answer the many questions we had without seeming to be burdened by them.

I’ve been working with Melissa for a few weeks. She’s a great ally in my effort to learn to sing. As a beginner, I appreciate her ability to translate concepts into practical terms and then give me exercises to apply those concepts immediately. I also appreciate that she consistently challenges me without overwhelming me. She can see what I am capable of, even when it feels like a stretch to me. I’m optimistic that with Melissa’s help I’ll eventually be singing beautifully.

The best!
She's intelligent, detailed, funny, and understanding. She really works with students on a personal level to ensure we are improving in a safe, efficient and fun way. I'm a beginner singer but she works with me and makes lessons structured but comfortable and enriching. I've really learned a lot from her. Highly recommend lessons with Mrs. Melissa. You won't regret it.

My name is Maryanne Dymond Fiorentino. I started taking lessons with Melissa a few weeks ago. I have to say she is a very good voice instructor. She is kind, patient, and always wanting to help keep improving my craft. She pays close to eye on any mistakes and loves what she does she is very knowledgable and easy to talk to about anything regarding the voice singing and repertoire. I would like to say I give a 1 star to the take lessons online site Melissa and I have been working together on skype which is a zillion times better in being able to communicate.

Ms. Melissa did such a fabulous job preparing me for a church solo piece, Give Me Jesus. She worked with me so much on it, specifically with the dynamics and musicality. She is so patient and kind when working with me, and I look forward to her lessons every week. :)

Melissa has a lovely, well trained voice! She doesn’t sing with strain- she correctly supports her voice! She worked with me for 5 years in our choir. The choir always enjoyed her vocal and anthem preparation! So- not only does she have the talent and training- she understands how to work with singers for the best results. As a retired high school and college choral director, I have the highest respect for Melissa. I miss her!

I've sat in on a few lessons, and she certainly knows her stuff. While she won't let you take the easy way out, you'll come out of it with proper technique and great tips and tricks if you stick with her.

Melissa definitely knows her stuff! She’ll help you figure out your full potential! And she’s just a great person to be around ☺️
