"A much more substantial voice than one usually hears in this aria. Lovely warmth in the middle. The climaxes are wonderfully secure and exciting to hear. The words come through very vividly, and what is also wonderful is her dramatic involvement, which is total -- she lives every line."

Roger Pines (Lyric Opera of Chicago)

"Hart is a woman to be reckoned with."

Petoskey News

"Soprano Chelsea Hart Melcher performed 'Gretchen am Spinnrade', a veritable tour of the inner landscape of the title character – the lovesick Margarete, as she pines for Faust. Melcher delivered a clear and straightforward interpretation of the text..." In Beethoven Ninth..."the quartet of soloists came through admirably in each of its notoriously thorny passages."

The Columbus Dispatch

"A coolly captivating performance of Andre Previn's 'Vocalise'."

The Columbus Dispatch

"Her move to sympathetic support and sacrifice was handled with grace."

WFIU Public Radio

"Sings 'Come scoglio' with commanding force"

Petoskey News

“Singing better than very well... Girly... Wonderful firebrand Musetta.”

WFIU Public Radio

"Chelsea... as the teasing Musetta... gave Marcello plenty of argumentative love; they made their presence known..."

Thank you so much for being Syd’s singing teacher. She has really come so far. Every time she sings, it brings tears to my eyes. I think the confidence you instill in your students is an absolute lifelong gift you have given them. To sing from their chest takes some bravery and I think that without you that confidence in singing would not be there. The confidence goes far past just singing and I notice that change in Syd. We couldn’t have dreamed up a better teacher for her to work with. Thank you so much!

It has been such an incredible experience so far. I have grown in so many different aspects from my musical ability to my vocal range to my knowledge of music and all the way to my confidence as a person. It has changed so many aspects of my life. Her knowledge of music was so wide and so great but she also really cared about me as a person and really wanted to see me grow.

Superb school with talented and qualifed instructors. My daughter has taken voice lessons for five years with both Mr. Paul and Miss Chelsea, and while her vocals and performance have improved tremendously, I’m most grateful for the mentorship and values taught. Through the school my daughter had opportunities with Opera Project Columbus, and there are often leadership and intern opportunities as well. Highly recommend!

My Why

Singing is hard. Performing is harder. When you put yourself out there, you may feel insecure and lack confidence. It can show in your voice and physical symptoms can often make you feel paralyzed.

It breaks my heart to see singers work so hard on their technique and presentation, only to have that fall by the wayside when their anxiety takes hold. I've made it my mission to help my students channel their anxiety to be their superpower so that it no longer disables them, but enables them to perform with focus, joy, and confidence.
