-Melissa Mulligan, on why she founded Music Career Mastermind

Peter Zizzo (Grammy-and-Emmy-winning Songwriter)

 

Melissa has the rare ability of making one feel like they’re being taught by a friend. The best mentors create a safe oasis of creativity: their guiding presence is there, instructing & inspiring rather than intruding & intimidating. As both career coach and (superb) vocal coach, Melissa stands tall among those mentors. Working with her is pure joy for me.
