"PASSION is CONTAGIOUS!" I am a specialized vocal technique instructor, which means that I teach each student how to use and develop their instrument through a series of exercises designed specifically for their particular voice. I believe that lessons should be exciting and enjoyable while at the same time challenging. Mistakes are part of the learning process!!! So in my studio, I encourage all students to take risks and explore their voices. I teach all styles, and particularly enjoy singing the blues. My motto is: Passion is contagious! I am a very passionate teacher, and my number one goal is to awaken the passion in every one of my students. My favorite teacher is my SLS founder and CEO, Seth Riggs, who has taught just about every celebrity including Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and Kelly Clarkson. I am a certified SLS instructor, and currently hold a BA in music from San Diego State University.

Melody utilizes over 10 years of vocal study to help her students connect head and chest voice, create a strong mix voice, and extend their ranges. She creates a fun and relaxed atmosphere where mistakes are considered part of the learning process, and thus encouraged. She has studied with Seth Riggs (CEO SLS), Greg Enriquez (SLS), Kathy Kennedy (SLS), Virginia Norwood (SLS), Guy Babusek (SLS), Charlene Chi (PHD. Voice UCSB), Mindy Pack ( Vocologist) and Dr. Randal Wagner, and Steve Mortier. Melody has been a professional musician, vocalist, and actress since she was 16 years old. She began her career in musical theatre and graduated to film and television, starring in the independent hit "Down and Out with the Dolls." Her rolls in theatrical productions include Ti Moune in Once on This Island, Rizzo in Grease and numerable others. She has enjoyed a career as a professional vocalist performing in nightclubs, music festivals, casino's, and as an opening act for many national and touring performers.

She currently holds a Bachelor's of Music Degree from San Diego State University's Don Powell school of Music and Dance, and is a Certified SLS Vocal Technique Instructor. She teaches all ages, from young children to seasoned adults. Here are some nice things people have said about her: "A rock chanteuse with a bold attitude and a set of seductive, versatile pipes. . " -Anthony Davis Texarkana Gazette The Forum Newsweekly "Melody stands poised to take the national stage with a unique style and dynamic performing presence." The Shreveport times "She sat in for a set at the Noble Savage Tavern and as soon as she hit that first chord and that first note, everybody stopped talking and faces were pointed to the stage." Dan Garner Tipitina's The Shreveport Times "Whether she's playing solo shows or gigs with her band, [Melody] has a keen ability to translate her emotions about dreams lost and chased into bluesy, heartfelt, tumultuous vocals." Michael Pickett "Hey Melody! Thanks so much for jumping into the 2007 Lake Roosevelt Musicfest. You were a huge hit up here!! The mayor was sitting around with some of her volunteers and told me 'we think Melody takes the prize this year'. It was just a great addition the event and you made me look really good by just knocking everybody out like that! " Personal thank you letter from Michael Pickett, promoter of annual Musicfest in Marcus, Washington. *** Lesson Details *** *** Studio Equipment *** Keyboard, piano, microphone, Guitars. *** Travel Equipment *** Will travel for: Studio coaching for artist recording. *** Specialties *** Voice: I teach pop, musical theatre, Jazz, rock and blues styles.
