Teaching since:

I am a professional actor, singer, and teaching artist. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts in Vocal Performance (magna cum laude) and a Masters of Fine Arts in Acting.

My original background in music is in classical singing, but I teach several different styles, such as musical theatre and jazz. My favorite thing about teaching is watching students have breakthroughs and seeing their musicianship soar through the roof.

Singing · In studio

I was very nervous about taking voice lessons because I'd always been insecure about my singing voice. Melissa quickly set me at ease and gave me reassurance that I could, indeed, sing. After my very first lesson, I finally felt like I didn't have to hide my voice anymore. After that, she gave me manageable and practical exercises to help me on my path to discovering my voice. I am so grateful for the work I did with Melissa.
