"Nikita was accepted into BAK Communication Department...I know you were a huge part of making this happen...thank you! Patricia"

Patricia Koering

"I have always had audition anxiety all through high school and college. I found it extremely hard to control my emotions which had a horrible impact on my performance. I had difficulty controlling my breathing and my heart rate which left me feeling insecure about my product. I found Melissa's program through a random Google search and fell in love right away. She was the only teacher that really touched on audition and performance anxiety and how it affected the body. The first lesson was focused on the anatomy of the body, specifically the throat, and what was actually going on while I was singing. I have honestly never approached a note the same way after that first lesson! Once I started to understand how much I was letting my head affect my body, it became easier for me to control my emotions and truly tackle an audition the appropriate way. She taught me some amazing warm ups not just for my voice, but for my mind and body. My repertoire has also improved dramatically. I truly believe that Melissa's methods provided me the tools I needed to securely walk into any audition room and walk away confident every time.""
