Melanie Galloway, soprano, is an Associate Professor of Music at Azusa Pacific University, teaching voice and voice related courses. She comes from New York City.

She has successfully guided her voice students to acceptance into renowned summer programs such as Houston Grand Opera - Young Artists’ Vocal Academy, The Academy of the West, Sugar Creek Opera, and Songfest; to earning scholarships at leading graduate schools including Bard Conservatory of Music, Eastman School of Music, Boston University, Manhattan School of Music, and San Francisco Conservatory; and to placing in competitions such as the James Toland Competition, Llangollen International Young Singer of the Year, and The Metropolitan Opera National Council auditions.

Melanie’s passion for teaching and mentoring young singers is equaled only by her love for performing. As a singer, Galloway has delivered national performances of quintessential operatic roles such as Mimi in La Bohème, Marguerite in Faust, and Micaela in Carmen, and has sung in concert in the United States, Europe, and Asia, including at the prominent Grand Shanghai Theater in China.
