Happy May everyone!

Our spring workshop series continues with our most requested topic yet. MMVSers, please register below. If you are not currently enrolled in MMVS but would like to attend, please inquire here, we’d be happy to meet you! mymmvs@gmail.com

Your Amazing YouTube Channel
This is, by far, are most requested topic to cover!  Melissa Mulligan will take us through the ins and outs of creating your own amazing YouTube channel and utilizing other social media tools to support it (twitter, instagram, vine etc).  We will cover it all: how to decide what songs to record, how to record the music, how to make and edit a simple but effective video, and how to (almost effortlessly) promote the videos to attract not just “views” but real fans who care about what you’re creating.  We will also go over some of the ways social media experts are now advising young artists manage their channels.  We are giving this one extra time because we will be making a video during the session!

Lift Your Voice: Singing Lessons Sent to Your Inbox. Go at Your Own Pace!

Liftyourvoice

Lift Your Voice is a 4-week, online, singing and music course complete with video instruction, inspirational stories and an interactive (optional and private) Facebook group for all participants.

Once we begin, you may take these lessons whenever you want, and they stay available to you after the “official” course dates.
We kick things off on Monday, April 6, 2015 and lift our voices together through Friday, May 1, 2015

Learn to sing in a way that feels good and sounds great!

Lift your Voice helps singers and self-proclaimed “non-singers” increase their love for their own voices.

How the Program Works:

  • Every Monday’s Email: One video voice lesson from Melissa Mulligan.
  • Every Wednesday’s Email: One video of an inspirational yet practical musical tip from a music business mentor.
  • Every Friday’s Email: One video featuring an MMVS vocal student (Fridayspiration)!
  • Every day: Participation in an optional Facebook group where we will discuss the lessons and share what inspires us about singing. Participation is OPTIONAL and you do NOT have to post audio/video of you singing.  You are more than welcome to make friends and network with other participants during our time together!

Some of the Topics We Will Cover:

  • How the body sings: It’s about more than breathing!
  • Finding your natural voice.  It is beautiful and powerful, I promise.
  • Pitch, ear training, and harmony
  • Basic music theory – the stuff you think everybody already knows (they don’t)
  • Vibrato, riffs, and grit
  • Truths and myths about singing, music, and the music business

Who is this for?

This program is for singers and self-proclaimed “non-singers” alike.

It’s for everyone I’ve ever met who has wanted to know “Can I learn to love the sound of my own voice?” “Can anyone learn to sing?”  or even “How do I know if I’m tone deaf?”

It’s for every aspiring singer/musician/songwriter who has messaged me on social media for help, advice, guidance and validation because they aren’t sure if lessons are for them or they can not afford the financial or time commitment for private lessons.

It’s for every parent who longs to take a few minutes for himself or herself, who wants to explore something creative and fun.

It’s for people who sing in the shower, while cleaning their rooms, while driving (alone or with friends).

It’s for everyone who fantasizes about being brave enough to sing karaoke, sit in with a rock band, play at that open mic down the street, sing for a family member or friend, audition for that show/choir/band and say “yes” to the next exciting opportunity that pops up in life.

What age group should sign up?

This program is for kids between the ages of 10 – 108.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What if I will be away during a portion of the 4-week class?
This course is designed so that you can go at your own pace.  You can watch the videos and take the lessons as they come to your inbox each week, or you can do them as your schedule permits.  I expect that all participants will have different needs and schedules, so we won’t all be on the same lesson each day.  The Facebook group will remain open and active throughout the summer, so we can continue to connect and talk about the lessons long after the official end of the course.

Do I have to share audio or video of me singing during the course?
Nope.  There is no requirement to sing in public, online or otherwise.

May I share audio or video of me singing for feedback?
You may!  There will be times during the course where I will invite those of you who are interested to either email me or post audio/video to our Facebook group.   This will always be optional!

What’s this private, optional Facebook group thing?
We will create a Facebook group that is closed to the public.  No one else will see it or have access to it.  This is where participants can ask questions and talk about the topics we’re covering in the course.  In my experience, if one person asks a question there are others who will benefit from the answer.  Plus, we’re going to be a pretty cool group of creative people, and it will be great to connect with one another.  If Facebook isn’t your thing, no worries!  You won’t miss any of the course material and you can certainly email mymmvs@gmail.com with any questions you have.

What if I already take voice lessons?
Join us!  There is no substitute for taking private lessons with your own vocal coach, but this program is an excellent source of information and inspiration that can be a great addition to your training.  Plus, you get access to videos, interviews and worksheets that are only available through this offering.

Cost: $79

Love Letters & Recommendations for Melissa Mulligan and MMVS

Melissa Mulligan’s Vocal Coaching Philosophy

I Dare You to Move

Dear Friends,

Four years ago I stood alone at the mic at Chef’s Table for the first MMVS Winter Showcase.  I don’t recall if I called it a “showcase,” but I do remember being as excited and proud as I had ever been. I was dying to introduce the students I had been working with for years to the newer crowd that had joined me in my new location.  I had a dream of creating an open-minded community where all of these amazing young artists could be inspired and supported.  About 20 students came with friends and family, some of them seated on the floor.  Several of those students are now my coaching teammates and joined me on stage on January 31, 2015 to kick off our 5th Annual Winter Showcase & Awards Ceremony.
To go from solo to this is… well, more than I had ever imagined.
This is why I say, dare to dream beyond what you know “how” to achieve.  When you are brave enough to sink into your deepest longing, you will move through the fear and discomfort of not knowing “how,” of not believing it’s possible, to understanding why you want what you want.  And then… you will make choices.  You will make big moves.  I dare you to move.  xo

The Big Day

Welcome to the 5th Annual MMVS Winter Showcase and Awards show!

Our Program MMVS Winter Showcase 2015

After two trips to two different (but equally awful) Staples, several computer upgrade fiascos and a dead printer, above  is a PDF of our program for this year’s show.  It’s beautiful.  Maybe it will appear on real paper some day.  But in the meantime, we can save some trees by making it available to you here.

If you are buying tickets, go ahead and click HERE to do so.

I used to spend the night before the showcase more or less alone, filled with excitement, anxiety, and yeah – some stress.  Tonight I got to spend a couple of hours laughing and singing with my best friends while we prepared for the showcase together.  I’ve got a story to tell you about these people who are now helping me lead this amazing community.  I’ll tell it from the stage.

xo,

Mel
