Our coaching time is an opportunity to explore and clarify. We will identify opportunities to enhance a joke, physicalize a moment and understand the arc of the character; while also discovering the powerful moments of simply listening. I encourage an attitude of curiosity and open-mindedness as we ground strong acting choices with your unique self.

Melissa is committed to both the beginning student as well as professional actors, going way above what’s expected from a teacher. Her comedic timing is impeccable and she’s able to take something that feels so innate and make it teachable. And her feedback is the best – when you nail it, you’ll know it because she bursts into spasms of laughter.”
