From Dream to Reality
A step by step blueprint for vocal performers and teachers to smooth the transitional pain from student to professional with ease and confidence. This map gives you clarity, direction, ideas, and emotional support to have a successful career performing, teaching, and being an entrepreneur.
In this 8 week online program you will learn the required skills and insider secrets to give you confidence and clarity as you transition from being a music major to your professional career (without feeling overwhelmed, making the wrong investments, or sacrificing your happiness).
Doing this course will give you the confidence and inspiration you’ve been looking for to create amazing transformations in your students and/or yourself. . It will give you the knowledge and tools to successfully direct and mentor students that want to have a music career, or personally have a successful performance career as you navigate the rocky and tricky pathway. It contains all of the insider tips from someone who’s been there–from being a music major in college (three different degrees) to being a contracted and award winning performer that created a successful voice studio and music school from scratch.
Each module has around 5 separate video lessons plus lots of bonuses! There are also pdfs, worksheets, checklists, and cheatsheets for each module as a part of the program. Modules will be released each week and are self paced. The course also includes a weekly FB live Q/A session with me throughout the 8 week launch.

About the Author
Chelsea Hart Melcher, a native of Coldwater, Michigan, has been described as “cooly captivating” and “a woman to be reckoned with” onstage. The Opera Idol National Finalist graduated with a Performance Diploma from the world-renowned Jacobs School of Music under the study of Heidi Grant Murphy, Kevin Murphy, and Timothy Noble. At The Jacobs School of Music Chelsea performed Musetta (La Bohème) under the baton of Paul Nadler and direction of Jeffrey Buchman.
Chelsea and her husband have co-founded RED School of Music (in loving memory of their music-supporting grandparents) and are actively teaching lessons to students in the greater Columbus area. Chelsea specializes in coaching performers to manage anxieties and gain a natural confidence onstage and in auditions. Her masterclasses, coachings and courses have helped hundreds of students solidify their technique, get lead roles/solos, and get accepted (even with scholarships!) into very competitive music colleges and programs. In turn, she supports other teachers to do the same with their students and for teachers to get out of their heads and have the confidence it takes to truly make a difference in their students’ lives.
