Zelda is a very attentive and knowledgeable instructor. She helps me to reduce my Russian accent.
I have really enjoyed Zelda’s class!! She is brilliant on what she does.
Zelda is a fantastic singing teacher. I felt a good vibe when I read her bio. I started out doing a half hour lessons and changed it to hour long lessons on the first lesson. She has helped me advance in my skills. She makes it relaxing, right off the bat, when you walk in and she offer's you tea. She is very patient and helpful. I've taken five lessons and signed up for five more.Show More
I had always wanted to see if I had any vocal talent whatsoever. I met with Zelda and she was patient and took me through the steps to check my range and abilities. I was very nervous as I had never sang in front of anyone before and she made me feel confident and comfortable as I stepped out of my comfort zone for the first time.
I will definitely go back to continue my work with her in the future when the timing is right! Thank you so much Zelda!!!
I loved getting lessons from Zelda! Her bright bubbly personality is so welcoming. She greeted me each lesson with a cup of herbal tea to sooth the vocal cords and we then worked on a series of great vocal techniques that have helped me maximise my singing potential.
This has subsequently led to me being a professional singer and touring extensively both nationally and internationally in a number of different singing styles and genres (including Jazz/Classical/Pop/Rock/Folk/Country).
Her safe methods build vocal control and stamina; as well as develop world class expressive and stylistic techniques. She manages all of this while also making lessons fun!
Zelda is an AMAZING teacher with so much knowledge about the human voice and proper singing technique. As a professional singer, I use her vocal warm-up EVERY DAY. I love it so much that I even share it with friends and on tour with fellow singers. Zelda also taught me skills to continue the longevity of my voice and help me massage my vocal chords after a long vocal workout. She is by far the best vocal instructor I've had, incredibly engaging and so very talented. I highly recommended her vocal training for any level singer.Show More
Zelda is the most amazing voice coach. Thoughtful, encouraging and incredibly knowledgeable, her rich experience in the industry and her empathy as an artist, songwriter and teacher are invaluable for anyone wanting to take their performances to the next level. Supported by an invaluable series of voice exercises designed to protect and strengthen the vocal chords, together with an innovative system of song interpretation, Zelda's unique approach to unveiling the natural voice and revealing the artist within gives her students a special kind of confidence.Show More
Zelda is a great teacher and always provides a positive experience. She gives specific instructions and feedback on how to improve while still being super encouraging and supportive.
Not only is Zelda a pleasure to be around, she is also a fantastic vocal coach. For me she was able to really pin down the areas of my voice that I struggled with and assess my range and pitch in a variety of ways so I could track my success. Having taken vocal lessons before from other teachers, I could see a definite difference with Zelda. Other coaches will waste your money and time with just hanging out or talking, but Zelda provides real value and results from day one. I 100% recommend her.Show More
Zelda is a brilliant! If you are wanting to sing for a living you need a great coach. Zelda will help you in every area ... hiring her was one of the best decisions I have made !
Zelda's knowledge about the human voice is astounding.... she makes the lessons challenging but also matches her students pace and understands where they're at.
Everyone sings differently and Zelda understands this and adapts her program to make sure her students receive the most benefits. Highly recommended!
