The Vocal Studio of Dr. Melanie Mitrano is located in Nutley, New Jersey, just 12 miles west of New York City. Hourly private lessons are scheduled on a weekly, or bi-monthly basis. A strong foundation in classical technique is developed, upon which students build a repertoire which includes various musical styles, including opera, art song, musical theater, and jazz. Repertoire is assigned in seven different languages: English, Italian, German, French, Spanish, Latin, and Portuguese.
Students of Dr. Mitrano have gone on to become college music majors at such prestigious institutions as Westminster Choir College and New York University, among others. Some adult students sing professionally, in a variety of arenas, including churches, with opera companies and in off-Broadway productions. Other students study mainly for enjoyment, and participate in community choirs or stage productions.
The Vocal Studio gives an annual Song Recital and participates in various voice competitions throughout the year. Only students ages 14 to adult will be considered for acceptance into the studio. Inquiries may be directed via email or phone at 973-320-5790.
