As a vocal coach, in addition to her private practice Mel works as a lecturer in vocal performance with BIMM London, as a senior vocal coach at the Sing Space, and has provided lectures on performance anxiety/psychology in performing artists for The Voice Study Centre (formally The Voice Workshop) in the UK.

Mel is qualified with an undergraduate degree in Creative Musicianship (vocals) and an MSc in Psychology. Presently, Mel is undertaking doctoral research with University College London where she is investigating the ongoing implications of music performance anxiety on the wellbeing of contemporary singers.
