About Melanie

I am a qualified, experienced musician, specialising as a singing and piano teacher. I have been teaching & performing in the music industry for over 15 years. I teach students privately, one on one, small groups, choirs and ensembles. I cater for all ages from beginner to advanced levels, for fun or exams (Trinity, A.B.R.S.M, L.A.M.D.A, L.C.M, A.M.E.B to name a few examination boards I am experienced in!)

I have performed in many different arenas, as a soloist at weddings to jazz piano bars & restaurants, from charity events to leading roles on stage in music theatre. From singing opera in the Vineyards in Australia and doing corporate function events at Star City Casino, Sydney, being a choir member in Hillsong’s Christmas Carols Wembley Arena singing to to thousands of people to designing a tailor made program for your private engagement in your own backyard, Melodies By Melanie can be your melody maker!

I am also an Inspirational songwriter currently recording and working towards the release of my first album and am available as a session singer.

I cater for all ages from beginner to advanced levels, for fun or exams (Trinity, A.B.R.S.M, L.A.M.D.A, L.C.M to name a few examination boards). I have been teaching and performing over the last 15years, the last 4 years in London, and 11 years in Australia. I have worked within private and public schools as a peripatetic Instrumental teacher in primary and secondary schools, as a Teachers Assistant, Cover Supervisor and have experience working with SEN children.

I have worked in the Australian Girls choir as a singing teacher and parts instructor, and within many other choirs in churches and schools over the years as main choir conductor/director preparing the choirs for performances, chapel, musicals, eisteddfods, exams.

Melodies By Melanie can help with short or long term development, whether it be for auditions, exams, or just for fun. All of my students in the past who have been prepared for exams or eisteddfods etc have always had excellent results achieving distinctions, or high credits on most occasions. Many have gone on to be chosen for lead roles in theatre, or have studied music and gone on into the music industry professionally.

Melodies By Melanie has helped many individuals with their EP’s and producing the artist’s development with their own original CD material, and takes great care, detail and excellence to helping you attain your goals whatever they may be.
