Vocal Coaching and Piano Lessons


Melissa Gordon Rhine


Melissa began her love affair with music as a baby (maybe earlier!). She began picking out tunes by ear on the family piano at 2 years old! At 8, she began writing poetic lyrics. Her elementary education included studying piano and theory at the Cleveland Music School Settlement. She also studied  violin, recorder, guitar and was an active part of various chorus'. She began studying Voice at age 18 and continues to currently study and grow as well as enjoying her work as a Vocal Coach.   There have been a wide variety of performance opportunities as well as studio work experience. Melissa recently appeared as "Miss Harmony" in the "town" of  Crossroads at Stone Mountain Park. She also perfomed on WXIA TV for the special "A Southern Christmas" hosted by Vicki Locke and Steve McCoy.

Her many influences include Sarah Vaughn, Joni Mitchell, Chaka Khan, Buddy Guy and instrumentalists throughout history.   As a songwriter, Melissa strives to create music in a variety of styles, that is positive and uplifting to the listener.
