Elevate your opera voice: Lessons with a professional musician
I have a passion for teaching people to sing to the best of their ability with the instrument they have been given! I want to teach others to sing like THEM, not like someone else or in a certain style, but to unlock their potential! There aren't shortcuts, but we can be relaxed, comfortable, and laugh on the journey to improvement! This is first and foremost a safe space to make mistakes and learn the correct way to use our bodies to sing. I have a bachelor's degree in music and performance from the University of North Georgia and have been teaching lessons for over eight years with students of all ages and backgrounds. I am excited to share what I have learned to help YOU sing to the best of your ability!
About Melissa G.

I am a professional musician who has held multiple positions as director of music at churches and has taught individual voice lessons with students with ages ranging from 5-92. Life is hard, let's learn music together in a way that builds us up. I believe that everyone with the singing bug has a diva waiting to be born and developed so they can shine! I am currently a content creator, a private voice teacher, and the mother of a 5-year old, with another little lady due to arrive in the summer of 2022! I would love to help you work toward your personal and professional goals with music goals in mind! My passion is for helping others use the instrument they were born with, both in the care of the voice and using it to express themselves beautifully, efficiently, and correctly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, or if you would like to hear a sample of my performances! P.S. I know we are all going through hard times, and music makes everything in life a little more bearable. I am offering prices which reflect our current situation. Same quality lessons, just a little more affordable in these hard times. I'd rather make music with you and see less gain, because it means we get to bring some joy to one another!

Melissa is such a gifted singing teacher! She has helped with strengthening good technique, and has identified weak areas. Melissa is gentle, yet direct, in teaching how to change your technique so you can have confidence in using your own voice! Very happy!!

Melissa is an awesome teacher. She makes all of her lessons fun in an educational way. She understands and believes in your ability right from the start and wants me to do the same. I look forward to growing into a more confident singer with her every week.
