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 acoustic tuning of the vowel in order to find a voice free from extrinsic muscular tension. Finding this type pf balance in the voice allows the resonators to work efficiently creating a smooth and even transition between registers.
Melanie will also help coach you for your upcoming audition or performance.

Style & Artistry
Melanie's goal is help each singer find their own unique sound and style while maintaining healthy vocal technique.
