Who Are We Studying With?

Meet Miss Melissa

Founder and Director of the DHVC, Melissa Angulo (or Miss M) has been teaching and working with youth in the arts over 10 years. While Angulo’s teaching approach is rooted in classical technique, it is not limited to a book or any one genre. Angulo teaches students from the basis of classical vocal technique to approach Classical, Opera, Musical Theater, R&B, Jazz, Rock, and Pop. Each student has their own unique set of strengths, interests, and past knowledge and must be addressed as an individual. Angulo does not just aim to create good singers, but great musicians. Through taking what comes naturally to a student and nurturing it, comes the most fulfilled musicians. Angulo has helped past students step into University of Southern California, University of Michigan, New England Conservatory, UCLA, Rice University, Michigan State, Columbia University, Berklee College of Music, and more, armed with skills and scholarships.


Berkeley native Melissa Angulo (or Miss M), known for her rich and compelling soprano tone, is an artist on the rise. A singer equally at home in styles of opera, jazz, rhythm & blues, and musical theater. In 2022, Angulo premiered a new work by french hornist Jefferey Scott, alum of Imani Winds with the Quadre Horn Quartet including members of the San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Portland Opera, and University of Michigan Faculty. Angulo sang alongside Frederica Von Stade at the 2015 Mendocino Music Festival. With participation in the University of Michigan University Choir, Angulo received her first Grammy nomination in 2014 under the baton of Kenneth Kiesler for Best Opera Recording. Additionally, in 2014, she covered the role of Inez in Virago Theater’s production of Il Trovatore, and in 2013, she took 1st place in the Pacific Musical Society Vocal Competition in the 19-25 category, adjudicated by Frederica Von Stade, Olivia Stapp, and the late Lotfi Mansouri.  She has sung for events such as the Bear Valley Music Festival, the 100 Club Gala, Music and Wine in the Vineyards, the Arts Medallion Luncheon and Ceremony, and Open Opera’s Summer Sizzle.
