Born and raised in Chattanooga, TN, Melissa Loga knew from a young age she wanted to dedicate her life to music. Beginning the violin at age 5, she quickly became enamored with the sound of strings and picked up the viola at age 12, while also supplementing her musical studies with voice by age 8.
Ms. Loga obtained her B.A. in Music by Spring of 2013, and Master’s degree in Viola Performance by Spring 2015 at the University of Georgia, under the tutelage of Maggie Snyder. Ms. Loga has performed in master classes and soloed across the United States, and was lucky enough to pursue solo and orchestral studies internationally in Milan, Turin, and Alessandria, Italy, in the summer of 2014.
Melissa currently teaches and gigs in the greater Atlanta area, while also playing electric viola and singing backup vocals for the band ZALE. She is currently focusing on building her own teaching studio in the Atlanta area, and writing her first solo EP, slated to release at the end of this year.
