Hey! SLPs and Voice Teachers!

Sick of scotch-taping together bits of advice and random voice exercises into a plan?

Wouldn't you love to develop the confidence and skills you desire through a super comprehensive program?

 

Become the voice professional you know you can be.

Become an MVP

I know the feeling.
You're SO ready to level up your skills as a voice professional, but you have no idea where to start.

You didn't get a voice CFY.

You're an SLP who feels like you were robbed of the chance to get mentorship in voice therapy because you didn't get one of a handful of voice-specialized CFY experiences, or your grad school voice course (and lack of voice placements) let you down big time. And now you feel like you're behind and you'll never catch up.

You feel like you could do this if only someone would let you in on HOW!

You don't know who to ask.

You have questions, but you don't know where to go to find trusted answers. You're tired of asking in supposedly-professional Facebook groups, only to have no more clarity than when you first asked. You wish you had a trusted group of colleagues you could discuss your challenging questions with, and get trusted answers.

You wish you had an expert mentor to talk to!

You want to learn HOW.

You've read everything you can get your hands on. You've done book clubs and journal groups and taken workshops and all the piecemeal continuing ed you can find. You've asked if you can shadow someone and they said no. You just want to see it in action. You just want the chance to demonstrate and get coaching in a safe, supportive environment.

You want a safe space to level up your skills!

You need an expert mentor,
a safe space with like-minded peers,
an opportunity to see it in action and try it yourself, and the knowledge to help you tackle even the toughest vocal problems... with confidence.

Hi, I'm Melanie.

I'm a professional singer, a voice teacher, a Singing Voice Specialist, and a registered speech language pathologist who only does one thing: voice.  And across my 30+ year as a voice professional, I've still never found a tool or a training that provides a comprehensive approach to systematically figuring out what the heck is happening with that voice (including my own!) in a way that instills confidence and builds a voice pro up.

So I created MVP: MasterClass for Voice Professionals.

Does this sound familiar?

You know you have skills and knowledge...

but sometimes you can't figure out how to translate your knowledge into real vocal improvement...

and other days, you can't figure out what to do when your tried-and-true tools don't cut it.

What techniques do I use in this vocal situation?

You know the sound or the feeling just isn't right. You may even have a referral with a diagnosis. It's up to you to solve this vocal problem. But... how?

We'll cover all the most contemporary exercises, tools, and strategies to solve a wide range of vocal problems so you'll always have a toolbox full of techniques to try.

How do I know what technique to choose?


You can hear that something isn't working. You might even be able to label it. But how do you decide what approach to take to build a plan to solve the vocal problem efficiently?

You'll learn a systematic approach to figuring out how to choose the right tool for every vocal situation.

Why isn't this technique working?


You've done a heap of extra training, and you have a toolbox full of tools at your disposal. You even know what exercise to choose when. So... why isn't it working?

You'll learn how to troubleshoot when things aren't going as planned so you can confidently and deftly adapt in real time.

How do I explain what I'm doing and why?


You've got great intuition and excellent ears. You've got heaps of empathy and personal experience. But how do you translate that kind of knowledge so it leads to results?

You'll learn the science behind the what, the why, and the how of all the techniques we learn, so you'll always be able to explain!

Oh no... progress is stalling... Is it them?


You've been making good progress, and then suddenly... plateau. You know you've chosen the right tools, but the voice you're training just isn't progressing. What now?

You'll learn when to hold 'em, when to fold 'em - and you'll know exactly what to do when the voice user just isn't "getting it".

They just aren't getting it. Could it be ME?


No matter what you try, it just doesn't seem to be working. The voice just isn't responding. Everyone is frustrated, and your confidence is sinking fast. You're worried... "is it me?"

You'll build your confidencein the tools you choose and the knowledge you have, but also in when it's time to call for support!

How would it feel to have the knowledge, skills, tools, and strategies you need...

and finally feel like the confident voice professional you want to be?

SLPs, I hear you. 

A voice client pops up on your caseload and you break into a cold sweat. Your brain flatlines. The only thing you remember from grad school is yawn-sigh. You panic: Is yawn-sigh even a thing anymore?! You tried the technique that's supposed to work, but nothing is changing. You know there has to be more to this than vocal hygiene... You even took a workshop recently, but the client sitting in front of you has a totally different voice problem - so it feels utterly useless now! You've read everything you can get your hands on, but none of it showed you HOW to do therapy.

You just want to see it in action.

You wish you had someone to guide you!

What if you had......

  • a curriculum that took you from assessment to treatment through to carryover
  • guidance on how to create a systematic approach to solving even the toughest vocal problems
  • a framework for how to choose the right therapeutic technique for every client
  • the opportunity to practice voice therapy techniques on simulated clients with supportive coaching
  • a mentor with an unending trove of resources and an exhausting passion for voice
  • a community of like-minded colleagues eager to share, discuss, and practice with

Voice teachers, I see you, too.

I was a voice teacher before I was an SLP - so I know how much we all benefit when we collaborate, so this training is for you, too!

And I totally see you. You love teaching and you're really, really good at it. There's nothing you can't tame with technique. Except for That Singer - the one with the tiny crackle. The one you gave all your tried-and-true strategies, but it still won't clear up. And now they're asking “...but can you fix it in time for That Big Audition My Entire Life Depends On?” Doubt creeps in. What if it’s not a technique thing? What if the ENT says there’s nothing wrong (when you both know that it isn’t right)? Sometimes you just feel alone in a silo and you're craving a welcoming and knowledgeable community.

You need a safe place to ask questions. Maybe you'd love to become a Singing Voice Specialist but you don't know how to get access to what SLPs learn.

You wish you knew how to get on a voice care team!

What if you had......

  • an insider's look into the way a voice care team operates and knew how to be invited into their circle as an SVS
  • the knowledge of what happens at the ENT and how to coach a singer to get the most out of the experience
  • an assessment framework to help you get to the bottom of how to balance a voice by seeing the whole picture
  • access to the voice therapy components of a speech pathology degree without all the other obligations
  • a community of other like-minded voice enthusiasts who want to blend the art and the science
  • a mentor who has been a voice teacher, a professional singer, and a voice SLP to tie it all together

I created MVP for YOU!

The SLP who didn't get enough training, experience, observation, time, knowledge...
who doesn't know how to make up for lost time.

The voice teacher who has the skills and knowledge and experience and training... 
but can't seem to make in-roads with the rest of the team.

The voice enthusiast who wants to blend the art and the science, and who knows there's more... so much more...
and can't wait to dive in.

MVP is a MasterClass for Voice Professionals

...but it’s also so much more
than that.


It’s a mentorship.
A community.
A safe space.

A central hub of knowledge and resources and tools and techniques and questions and answers and peers and honestly a lot of laughing and virtual high-fiving, too.

It’s modeling, coaching, observing, learning, unpacking, rethinking...
It’s the home base you’ve been waiting for.
It’s the course you wished you’d had in school.

It’s the safe space you can ask questions you wouldn’t dare anywhere else...
...but it's also the place where everyone laughs at your #voicegeek jokes.
It's where you can get up-to-date information from someone who shamelessly never stops learning or asking questions either.


It’s honestly about to become your new favourite place in the universe.

Here's how YOU become a real-life voice pro MVP:

Community

A private group of peers to continue the discussion and explore different perspectives between session

Support from your peers and your mentor, Melanie, as you grow and strengthen your voice pro skills

You'll have opportunities to practice your skills and create the resources you'll use with clients of your own, and you'll watch your confidence soar!

voice with me.

You really guided me on this new and exciting path. I really REALLY appreciate it!!!

Larisa, voice teacher

After the AMAZING symposium I was soooo inspired I really wanted to sign up for your mentorship program - your symposium was honestly one of THE best learning experiences of my 30 year career!!!!

You are a force to be reckoned with!!! WOW!!!

Jill, registered SLP

Melanie is one of those rare experts who combines deep clinical and technical knowledge with extensive real-world experience, which gives her credibility and perspective she generously shares. Melanie has many gifts, one of which is her ability to take complex information and make it accessible, practical and fun!

Alison Matthews - actor, voice artist, speech trainer

(It) was fantastic. I can't say enough good things about it. I loved your energy talking about voice. What I liked most was the fact that you made it realistic based on your experience working with voice clients. I loved that way you used nontechnical words as much as possible, and were really down-to-earth; it helps digest the info needed.

Marsha, registered SLP
I learned so much from you and had such a good time too! You have such a wealth of information to share and do so in such an enjoyable manner. I enjoyed your humor and hearing your client experiences. I felt very comfortable asking you questions and also safe responding to your questions. Thank-you for all you do in helping us be better SLPs. 

Carol Ann, SLP
