Melanie’s teaching is student-centered, guiding singers through a series of vocal exercises tailored to their own individual needs. She believes in a method that works towards finding balance in the flow of air, medium compression in the muscle (vocal folds) and proper tuning of the vowel in order to find a voice free from extrinsic muscular tension. Finding balance between air and muscle with proper vowel tuning allows the resonators to work efficiently creating a smooth and even transition between registers.
Melanie enjoys helping singers develop artistry, style and storytelling for performance in the studio or on-stage. Whether it’s cleaning a riff, connecting to the lyric or creating interesting vocal dynamic, she can help you achieve the vocals you desire.
Melanie offers an encouraging learning environment for singers of all ages and abilities. Frequency of voice lessons depend solely on the goals of the student, however, achieving the desired results requires commitment and consistency in training and practicing.
