Melissa Mulligan Vocal Studio offers private vocal coaching to students of all ages. In addition to working with our talented students in our CT and NYC studios, MMVS coaches provide support to many artists while they are on tour and in recording studios around the country. Melissa has also been a speaker and guest coach at Yale University School of Music, the VocalizeU Winter Retreat and many life coaching and musical events and retreats across the U.S.
Melissa has been coaching singers for more than a decade. In that time her students have signed to major record labels, toured the world, performed on TV shows like “Today,” “Conan” and “The Voice,” and entered prestigious music schools such as Berklee College of Music and the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU. A singer/songwriter who took her first voice lesson at the age of nine, Melissa has studied voice her entire life. Melissa’s work as an independent recording artist introduced her to vocal coaches of varying styles and methods in New York, Nashville and LA. This is when Melissa began to form her own ideas about what an individualized vocal program would look like for contemporary professional and aspiring singers. Combining the fundamentals of classical technique with what we know now through the science of “vocology,” music theory and creative writing, Melissa creates a holistic vocal program for each of her students that meets them where they are today and helps them get where they’d like to go. Melissa also runs the Artist Development Program at MMVS for those strongly committed to reaching their musical potential.
Over the last several years, MMVS has become a collective of professional coaches in production, songwriting, live performance, piano, guitar, audition prep and music business. We hope you’ll spend some time here getting to know our amazing team and making your dreams come true.
