MEET THE COACH
¡Hola! I'm Melissa V. Cartwright.
I've had to navigate limiting beliefs, being told throughout my career that one genre or one singing style was better than the other. There is beauty & value in it all and in what YOUR voice can do. I understand how it feels to work with my anxiety about how I feel when I sing, and I want to help you do the same!
You can be a thriving artist when you learn how to tackle those "Am I sure I can do this?" fears and sing with the kind of ease & joy you've always wanted. Let's train your MIND and your VOICE so that you can take the stage with CONFIDENCE, and have the performance career of your dreams!
