About Melissa


I’ve performed on stages around the globe from Paris to Detroit and across the seven seas. I’d like to introduce you to a sound unique and true to Motown and Detroit. A sound that’s honest and bold like the soul of the perormers and songwriters who helped to launch such a reputable style of music.

Melissa Behring & the Trustees features a rotating selection of Detroit’s most talented professional musicians and focuses on soul and blues. Think Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, and Adele met up and go to a party and you’re getting close to our sound.

Melissa Behring Fairy Godmother of Music Live Kids & Family Music

I love sharing my passion for music, edu-taining young people as The Fairy Godmother of Music, with sing-alongs, storytelling and fun. In this show, I focus on songs like “This Land is Your Land” from the history of American settlers to modern Disney favorites (Moana, SING, Coco) acompanied by stories, quizzes and facts from my global travels tailored to fit each audience.

I’m performing at several libraries and community events across Southeast Michigan in 2019. See my calendar of performances for details on where The Fairy Godmother of Music will be next.

Come take voice and performance lessons from me!

Since returning to Detroit in 2017, I’ve been a private instructor for voice and performance at the Detroit School of Rock and Pop Music.  

If you are interested in learning an instrument, singing, playing in a band, or any other type of musical career imaginable, The Detroit School of Rock and Pop Music can help you navigate, learn and grow both personally and professionally as a musician.
