Melissa Mulligan (Owner, Head Coach)
Voice, Career and College Prep, Songwriting, Artist Development, Vocal Coach Training
Melissa Mulligan 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 “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 vocal technique with elements of music theory, performance and audition prep and creative writing, Melissa creates a 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.
