    Wow, working with Missy deserves a book. Lol. She’s amazing.. really taught me how to express myself as an artist and not just a musician. Her therapeutic approach to music really saved my life in my worst times, through broken hearts, bad relationships, school, etc.. Missy is going to show you how to face yourself and not only learn from it, but take something from it that you can give back in music. I love you missy!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I take an unconventional method to teaching, whether it is a student or professional artists, I always begin with establishing trust. I do this by learning who the student is- their likes and dislikes, their own philosophies and preferences and most importantly their goals. I want to focus on the individual goal of the student so I can give them specific tools to achieve it.


I also believe when teaching creative people you teach them with the methods they can relate to. Not all students are the same; therefore not all students learn the same. I meet them where they are and evaluate this every lesson.


Creative arts are a journey that I, as a teacher, am allowed to be on. It is a voyage of exploration, self-awareness and feelings. Sometimes this involves a great deal of emotion and vulnerability from a student. I am reverent of this process by creating a safe and fun environment for such expression.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been working with vocalists, songwriters and performers for 20 years. I have had students on "The Voice", national ad campaigns, release albums on major record labels and many reach their goals professionally and personally.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My lessons are $60 for an hour or 200/mo for (4).
