Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have extensive experience working both as a Performer and as a Teacher. My performing career has thus far allowed me to enjoy a wide variety of roles and I have been fortunate enough to work both nationwide and abroad. As a Singer I have taken the lead in various Musicals and Operas and have also performed with a range of stars from the world of Pop Music. I perform in a range of groups and bands and additionally write and perform my own work. My Acting career has seen me portraying a multitude of characters of many ages. Some of my favourite Theatrical roles to date are: Hamlet (Hamlet); Rosalind (Love's Labour's Lost); Hermia (A Midsummer Night's Dream); Ellie (The Diary Of A Killer Cat); Jo (English Journies) & Bella (Wild Woods). I have also got excellent on screen experience having worked both in feature films and commercials and therefore enjoy teaching these aspects of Acting too. Working as a Dancer and Choreographer has led me to dance with and choreograph for some of the Industries finest artists and is again a skill I greatly enjoy sharing. In addition to this, I run a Cabaret Dance Troupe with which I perform regularly. My teaching has allowed me to work with students from all walks of life, from both professionals working in the West End though to school children and those interested in a hobby and in a variety of situations.

Yes.

I am also a trained Dancer and Actress, having graduated with a 1st Class degree from Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I belong to the ISM, Equity and Spotlight.

C
CFM, London, Professional Piano Teacher

Singing lessons with Melissa are fantastic, she strikes a perfect balance between fun and focus, to create lessons which are productive, rewarding, and which fly by. Melissa is careful to tailor each lesson to me, building on my strengths, working on my weaknesses, setting targeted practice and finding music which inspires me. She's a wonderful and talented teacher, and I heartily recommend her.
