B.A. (Honours Music)

Melissa has been a part of the Kitchener-Waterloo music community her entire life and is excited to be graduating this fall from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Arts in Honours Music with an Intensive Music Specialization where she has been studying voice under the direction of Stephanie Kramer.

Melissa has always had a passion for music, she has been playing piano since the age of 3 and has performed in over 20 community theatre productions in the KW area. Select credits include: Anne in Anne of Green Gables (Believe Theatre), Joanne in Rent (Believe Theatre), The Sound of Music (KWMP), The Music Man (TCP), and Admetus in Cats (The Singer’s Theatre).

Melissa has always had great enthusiasm for teaching, her years of teaching both piano and vocal at her private studio, as well as in group settings at local community centres has given her an even deeper love and understanding of music which she hopes to share with you!
