About Missy M.

Missy is a multi-talented vocalist and vocal coach experienced in electric and acoustic guitar and piano. Since graduating from world-renowned Berklee College of Music in 2003, Missy has performed live with bands from the San Diego Indie Music Fest to CBGB's and as a solo·acoustic artist across the country, as well as teaching private lessons in voice, piano, and guitar. Graduating as a Professional Music Major, Missy focused on Music Business and Songwriting and uses this background·in addition to Music Theory to help her students to become well-rounded musicians. As a professional musician, Missy has worked as a back-up vocalist, acoustic guitarist (Katie Armiger, Cold River Records), demo-singer, and songwriter (Megatraxx, LA). Missy studied under top-notch vocal coach, Mark Baxter (Aerosmith, Goo Goo Dolls, Journey) and utilizes Baxter's techniques in conjunction with her own to help singers of all levels and styles. Missy's notable students include singer/songwriter Rachel Brown and Paul Mitchell from America's Got Talent ('Tommy Mitchell') For Songwriting style, check out Boston to Austin (Co-written with Will Champlin of ABC's The Voice, Mike Verge) *** Lesson Details *** I am here to teach you at the pace that works best for you! Everyone is different and everyone likes different styles of music- I try to cater to that as much as possible. I will always set the expectation bar as high as you're willing to go. For piano, when teaching in books, I normally go for the Faber! For guitar, various renditions of Hal Leonard, and for voice, The Rock and Roll Singer's Survival Manual. If you feel that you're better suited to learn primarily by ear or without the specific training of instruction books, let me know and we can pursue alternatives. *** Studio Equipment *** Great room setup for lessons with keyboard and instruments. Parents can sit in on lessons. *** Specialties *** Mark Baxter (Steven Tyler, Steve Perry vocal coach) method- geared toward pop/rock/country/blues. I work well with all types of beginner piano and guitar players and excel with people interested in learning how to write songs, learn chords and fun rock riffs.

Super impressed! My son very much enjoyed his first guitar/voice lesson with Missy. He’s very excited about their plans for lessons. She is taking extra time on her own time to tailor their lesson plans according to my son’s music interests. He came home from his lesson and picked right back up on what they were working on together!

It's been awhile since I wrote a review and I was compelled to leave one today. I had a really bad allergy attack and could barely talk let along sing...I thought. Despite my current voice condition I stuck with my appointment. Much to my amazement Missy and her incredible knowledge as a voice instructor, navigated me through just the right warm ups. To my astonishment, I was able to sing and carry a note. Who knew? She is wonderful to work with! I so appreciate you, Missy. Your seemingly endless knowledge enables me to not only be encouraged but to carry on with my journey of singing. No matter what shape my voice might be in.
