Ms. Melissa has been studying classical voice and Opera for the past 18 years. She specializes in sight singing and NYSSMA prep, and likes to focus on making singing natural and easy for the voice, using techniques like Alexander and teaching students about proper vocal anatomy so they can better understand their voices, and therefore, sing healthily.

Ms. Melissa knows that most students struggle with sight singing, and she aims to make it easier. She believes in identifying patterns to help the brain understand how to sight sing with more confidence and accuracy, and always over-prepares her students for NYSSMA by teaching them how to read at a level ahead of their own.

Ms. Melissa currently teaches out of her private home, and she has had great success over FaceTime with her other students. She hopes she can do the same for you!

About Melissa N.

Ms. Melissa is a classically trained singer and pianist with a love for all kinds of music. Since 2013, she has taught students to read music, understand music, and prepare for various occasions such as NYSSMA, auditions (theatre, college, etc.) and recitals.

She is currently teaching out of her home, but don’t let that discourage you! She has been wildly successful with these lessons, and she has no doubt that either you or your child will benefit from these online lessons just as much as you would from in-home lessons.

We love our online lessons with Melissa! We just prop up the phone or iPad on a chair and Melissa can guide my daughter as if she was sitting right next to her!! She keeps her engaged and focused with her encouraging approach and current song choices. Voice lessons are also going great with Melissa demonstrating or singing along as needed. I spoke with A LOT of instructors and music schools and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Melissa to anyone!
