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. Half-hour lessons are offered in special cases. 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, jazz and pop.
