Melissa is the best! I'm so thirlled to report that after working with Melissa my daughter was accepted as a freshman acting major at Dreyfoos School of the Arts. I'm looking forward to having my daughter continue to work with her on her singing!
Emma just can't say enough about you. She is so glad we found you and she tells everyone about how working with you has changed EVERYTHING for her. She says no matter what happens she is so glad she worked with you as it has transformed her confidence so much!!
Gabby's audition went really well! The choir director's eyes got as big as saucers when she sang her piece and he asked where did that come from? Her audition was excellent. She felt very confident - it's unbelievable the amount of confidence you gave her and how her voice improved tremendously in just a few lessons. She can't wait to continue to work with you!
When our son was asking to switch majors at Bak into theatre, we knew we had to find an expert to properly prepare him for the audition. Melissa Jacobson was that person. Her background and love for theatre arts allowed our son to get excited about the theatre audition process. Melissa knew how to connect with our son, and helped him develop, build and executive skills based on his creativity and natural abilities. Our son went into his audition completely prepared for several scenarios, and more important - he went in confident and excited!
Working with Melissa was the best experience I could ever ask for. She's helped me so much vocal technique such as pitch, breath control, and so many other things. She focuses on every thing which has been really helpful especially in preparing for auditions. She's just an amazing teacher - you'll love Melissa Jacobson.
Melissa is a very talented singing coach. She relates extremely well to both children and adults and has a very practical way of teaching. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for audition help as well.
Melissa ha been teaching my daughter voice lessons for several years. Because of her training my daughter is learning how to control her head voice using proper technique. Melissa goes above and beyond to help her succeed at auditions.
My daughter came to Melissa with very little theatrical and voice experience for audition coaching for Dreyfoos School of the Arts. After training with her for only a short time, not only did she develop the necessary skills in vocal and theatrical performing,but also her delivery, presentation and most importantly, she developed her confidence. My daughter truly matured as a performer and as a person. It is because of Melissa that she was accepted into Dreyfoos. We look forward to the years ahead with Melissa. She is an outstanding talent, life coach and teacher. She loves what she does and it shows!
From the second I met Melissa I instantly knew she had a passion for music and teaching. She not only teaches you proper technique on how to achieve your best vocal performance, but she does it with a passion that is contagious! She will work with you and keep pushing you to the max because she believes in you. You will not be disappointed!
I am a Palm Beach County resident with 3 kids in public school. I
came across Ms. Jacobson's name while speaking to a friend one day and
called her to help tutor my son for an audition to Dreyfoos School of
the Arts. I watched my son transform into a confident and much more
realistic and skilled actor/singer in just an hour! I owe her
instruction and most importantly confidence building to my son's
acceptance at Dreyfoos this year. Her skill as a teacher and ability to
inspire and motivate young actors/performers is second to none. When I
first went to the Plaza Theatre, I realized the importance of the type
of program she has created. Two of my kids have now performed in her
educational productions and have learned so much. Melissa's conservatory
is literally forming the actors of the future as well as the financial
supporters who will one day fill the audience when the current
generation has passed on. Even students who aren't performing are drawn
to her shows to see their friends on stage. The result is a cultivating
and growing, lasting love of the arts for students who many times would
not have this exposure. She has been very successful in educating
students in acting, theatre, movement and voice in a unique way that
keeps the kids interested and wanting more. Tracey Powers, West Palm Beach, FL
goes above and beyond! She helped me with my audition for college! She
helps you build confidence and has such a positive attitude! She is also
very helpful when trying to pick music selections! I would highly
As a certified, licensed Speech-Language Pathologist, I heartily endorse
Melissa Boher Jacobson in her endeavors as a voice teacher, coach and
stylist. She has demonstrated her knowledge of vocal anatomy and
preservation when observed during teaching sessions. It is crucial that
students receive proper vocal teaching to prevent anomalies that could
damage their vocal mechanism. Her diplomatic, warm and encouraging
personality make for a dynamic learning opportunity. Melissa's 's
teaching methods reflect the best standards in vocal performance. Lynn Chvotkin, M.A. CCC-Sp. Speech-Language Pathologist Jupiter, Florida
