MEET MELISSA VAZQUEZ CARTWRIGHT
Originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico, and grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, I consider myself a "Georgia-Rican". I am a music graduate of Point University where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Ministry and Vocal Pedagogy. Having sung competitively in college, my work was recognized by the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS). For the past twenty years, I have worked in radio and television and as an actress with regional theatre companies, in addition to teaching. My most recent performance was with Virginia Repertory Theatre's award-winning production of Lin-Manuel Miranda's "In The Heights" as Daniela.
It is my love for singing, seeing others thrive, and overcoming their performance-based fears, that feed my passion for how I train each one of my students. I am not just your vocal coach, but also your CONFIDENCE COACH.
When I'm not in the studio, you'll find me serving as a worship leader and vocal director at Northside Christian Church; as a guest music teacher for York County's School of the Arts; or composing original music. Spending time with my husband and my two daughters is my favorite and most important past time.
