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, earned gold records, scored radio hits, performed on TV shows like “Conan,” “Today,” and “The Voice,” (and music channels like Vh1 and MTV) and entered prestigious music schools such as Berklee College of Music and the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU. She has been a guest speaker and workshop facilitator at locations across the country, including Yale University's School of Music in New Haven, CT and the VocalizeU Artist Development Retreat in California. A singer/songwriter who took her first voice lesson at the age of nine, Melissa has studied voice her entire life.  Her 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 program would look like for contemporary professional and aspiring singers. Combining all of the new discoveries in the field of “vocology,” with music theory, performance and audition techniques and creative writing, Melissa and her MMVS coaches create programs for all of their students that meet them where they are today and get them 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 songwriting, production, piano and guitar. We hope you’ll spend some time here getting to know our amazing team and making your dreams come true.
