Teacher: Melissa Winter
Melissa began taking singing lessons when she was 14 and continued to do so throughout high school. After graduating, she attended Cal State Long Beach, majoring in psychology and minoring in music, where she began learning piano and guitar. After researching music therapy and all that it entails, she realized that music therapy was perfect for her. Unfortunately, CSU Long Beach discontinued their Music Therapy program in the early 90s, so Melissa began the process of transferring schools. In the chaos, she decided taking a year off and working was the best decision for her, which is when she began working at Creative Identity. Melissa will go back to school in the fall to finish her degree and get her music therapy license.
