I learned about so much about road-mapping and different aspects of the music industry, especially through Mike Mangini's presentation in the program. I grew so much as an artist because I was able to work one-on-one with different people who are a part of the MMVS team, which allowed me to work on specific aspects of my craft that I wanted to improve my skills in. I would recommend others to take full advantage of this program and come into the program with no expectations because that's what I did, and it blew my mind how much I was able to accomplish within a span of 8 weeks. Now, I am producing a song with one of my coaches that I wrote while I was in the mastermind program; it will be dropping onto Spotify and iTunes within the next few months. My road map helped me organize my dreams into a simple layout that I am now following.

Every time I leave one of these sessions, I feel like I am not alone in this. We are all taking on this industry together, and this program is seriously one of the best things I could have ever done for myself and my career.

My daughter is a sophomore at Belmont. She did the MMVS Mastermind class and literally learned more in that 12 weeks than 3 semesters as a music student. It was absolutely the best money we have spent in regards to her career. (Including the tens of thousands in tuition) She has a clear plan and road map to reach her dream of being a performer and recording artist.

My daughter (16) recently finished the Mastermind program with Melissa. She has always been very Type-A and is extremely self-driven, but I now see a new focus and fire in her. She is determined to be self-sufficient and has taken over management of her social media and other tasks... Without getting into too many details, Kacie was at a crossroads and had some decisions to make regarding her path. All good choices, but she was a bit unfocused, reactive and tired from spreading herself too thin. Melissa and her team helped Kacie clarify her goals and to create a roadmap to achieve them. She is energized and feels empowered. I am feeling less alone and overwhelmed in how to guide her into the career/young adult that she envisions.
Bottom line: if you have found yourself here and haven't already spoken with Melissa, I encourage you to do so. I'll admit, I stalked the page for months before finally reaching out... wish I had done so sooner.

My son (19) was in the Mastermind group this past summer. It was a life-changing experience for him. If you've watched Melissa's video about the Mastermind, she talks about how he started singing because of the group. Absolutely true. I'd wanted him to try for a few years, as it felt like the missing piece for him as a musician and songwriter, but he always balked. This time, he chose to do it on his own. Miraculous, and entirely unexpected.

This is totally a plug for Melissa Mulligan's Mastermind Class y’all. My daughter (18) is just finishing up this class and her growth since September is enormous... This class teaches it all, vocal, song writing, presentation, mind set, social media and much more. (My daughter) has the confidence to create her own path and go forward with the career she wants and knows now that she is capable of creating. This class is a life changer! Can’t thank you enough Melissa and team! ❤️

Wanted to give a shout out to Melissa and her amazing Mastermind team. My 16 year old daughter had many pieces of what I think of as a "music puzzle" and I didn't know how to help her. The MMVS Mastermind class guided her to put those pieces together and make short and long term goals that include college planning. I can't say enough about how wonderful this program has been for my daughter. She has been performing and writing music for a while, but it was the Mastermind program that helped her grow as a songwriter, record, produce, and put herself "out there". Here's her first self-produced original...
My son (15) hit it off with Melissa and he was invited to be a part of her MMVS program which he has since graduated from! Everyone was so amazing!!!! He was writing original songs before he started but now he’s spending time dissecting them and revamping them thanks to Coley. He is more confident in his singing voice and not just rapping thanks to Melissa. He also has songs written strictly for piano, others for guitar and he is experimenting with EDM and mixing them thanks to Chris. He continues to take private vocal lessons and music production where he incorporates and builds on his music theory knowledge that he is learning in school.
