Mia, College Prep Student

Marymount Manhattan College 

"Melanie was one of the most attentive and detailed coaches I have ever known. From knowing nothing about auditioning and applying for colleges, she had me feeling in just under a year as if I had been a working professional my whole life. She opened up a world of knowledge that I never knew and helped me embark on my college journey feeling incredibly prepared for the next four years. She focuses on every ounce of your strengths and lets you embrace and love what you need to work on. Not to mention, she is constantly wanting to learn as well which makes everyone around her want to do the same and jump right in with her. Thank you doesn’t express my gratitude and she is still a large reason for why I am still pursuing a career in the arts today!"

Caroline, Private Acting Student

"I had been away from acting for a few years when I started private classes with Melanie. My goal was to improve as an actor, become more comfortable on film, and to create a reel for submitting to roles. Melanie was so encouraging and incredible to work with. She picked up on my strengths and taught me new skills. She enabled me to reach my goals during a busy senior year where I was applying to and visiting colleges, taking SATs, and more."
