NOTE - Melissa runs mostly an all-female voice and piano studio - but she know lots of music by ear of today's top male artists and bands! Melissa accepts males who are at least 10 years old and have somewhat of a musical background and want to make music part of their future career. Melissa accepts males on an as-needed basis and on an every other week schedule. Always be prepared with a minimum of 3 songs each lesson for those doing half hour lessons. Note - You all will love all of the songs i know by ear on the piano - just like the singers do on The Voice and other vocal competitions - we do the songs from the 60's thru today. So important to be able to take these classic songs and bring them into 2016! Only i can take these songs - BY EAR - and do them like you want them on the piano and together we can re-make these songs into masterpieces for you to perform and audition with. (Melissa coaches males for voice lessons and also voice/piano combo lessons) (Note - Right now Melissa is working with several HEAVY METAL male singers who are on tours and working on studio albums! Melissa can help touring male musicians and singers with singing, proper technique when singing that type of music - AND Melissa can play this type of music by ear in your key!!)
