About Wesley

The voice can be fickle, mysterious, and deeply frustrating. I know this because I struggled to connect to my own voice for a long time. However, with the right direction and commitment, our voices can be fulfilling, powerful, and free. When I feel connected to my voice, I feel exhilarated.

I've worked with students who came in struggling to find pitch and they've left with powerful voices. I've worked with professionals looking to open a new opportunity and they did. This isn't rocket science, there's no secret formula. But, I do work very hard to help you discover the unique and powerful qualities of your voice. This and proper technique are key.
You can include other instruments in these sessions.

I agree with everything the other reviewer and student said. Deanne is very knowledgeable, positive and enthusiastic. And she makes voice lessons really enjoyable. I was on the fence with taking voice lessons and I am extremely glad I went with it, and Deanne is a big part of this reason.

Great. Very personable and easy to relax with. Great exercises and homework I feel is doable as my first ever vocal lesson. Can't wait for my next session :)
Junie
My 5 year old daughter has become a stronger dancer with Ms. Kelly as she builds up for her recital. We are truly lucky to find such a dedicated and talented teacher.
Tracey
I was very lucky to have found Kelly. I had always dreamed of having artistic talent but I am not a naturally good singer. Within two years, I have gone from singing in the shower to having developed to stage performance. Kelly has taught me so much from the artistic expression of singing to the mechanics of turning my voice into an instrument. She has an incredible ability to listen to my voice and pinpoint the exact adjustment I need to make it sound great. She's such a fun person to be around that I always look forward to my next lesson. Her positive attitude and approach is also a testament to her high level of professionalism. She provides feedback that is positive. but also helps me improve She is the perfect combination of teacher and coach and I would highly recommend her for anyone interested in singing.

"Singing Lessons

I am taking singing lessons with Bijan Zelli and I’m pleased with his approach and what I’m learning,
Bijan is very knowledgeable about music and is personable, patient and supportive, qualities I need and respect in a teacher.
When we started, Bijan took the time to ask me what I wanted and did a diagnosis to find the range, upper and lower, that I was capable of singing, to determine my basic knowledge of music and hear how I put over a song. From that he developed his approach with me.
Even in the short (2+ months) time we’ve been working together, I can see improvement in several areas. First, Bijan showed me that to really sing a song and best use my voice, I needed to learn some music basics. Second, he is teaching me how to listen to a song versus hearing it. The result is not just to sing a song, but sing it with the expression and emotion that draws an audience in.
Bottom line: I recommend Bijan Zelli if you want to improve the quality of your singing."
