Zelda started learning and playing guitar at age 7 and she she shares her passion for creativity, communication and lifelong learning with students from 5 to 97. Her lessons are refreshingly different - centering on the individual student and their unique needs and has helped many students improve their abilities for professional communications, confident performances, succeed in auditions and competitions, become more effective with media and workplace interviews, presentations and events, working in a team, joining and playing in a band, creating dynamic setlists, singing karaoke and in recording audio and video and a lot more. HOW ZELDA'S LESSONS ARE STRUCTURED Zelda's coaching is student-centered. Lesson ONE is where you discuss your goals and then your voice or current skill level is measured for both the coach and student to clearly see the baseline of where you are now so that the progress you are making each week is clearly seen and heard. Then in the following lessons, the foundational coaching tools for voice, speaking and music mastery are introduced one by one, explained, and demonstrated, which you then practice yourself and then show what you've learned by demonstrating your understanding and ability to use the new tool. You then apply all the tools you are learning to the material and projects that are relevant to you so that you can master each tool and technique in real-life application. You are given practice activities and homework to help you progress even faster and your success is monitored so you can see how far you've come. Students love this super-organized and systematic approach to learning to master using their voice and musical ability because they can easily see their breakthroughs, successes, and progress in each lesson and celebrate how they achieved marvellous milestones of accomplishment.

MORE Zelda is a professional speaker, singer, musician, songwriter, and coach with a mission - to change the way people think about creative talent. She knows first-hand that when students get into the right headspace they can make amazing breakthroughs with their voice, their musicianship, their careers, and themselves in all areas of their life. As a young child, Zelda was extremely shy with her voice. She was so unconfident she could not sing in front of anyone else, not even her family. She started learning guitar at age seven, but it took her many years to gain the confidence to actually sing and perform. This is why Zelda loves working with shy singers, speakers and musicians, because she knows firsthand what is stopping the shy singer from letting themself come out of their shell. She knows what the shy singer needs to gain confidence step by step in a supportive environment. Zelda believes it’s not just about talent you're born with - but rather passion to master easy-to-learn skills to advance to the next level. She’s right at home with people at any level from raw beginners to shy speakers and singers to high-level professionals. Her encouraging style helps speakers, singers, musicians, and songwriters develop their unique voice for any situation - workplace, live performance, audio and video recording, auditions, presentations, and any type of event. Zelda's students range in ages from 6 to 97 and come from all walks of life, from children to teens, to recording and touring musicians, to adults in professional careers, to teachers and current and retired professors.

I love working with Zelda, she is a wonderful teacher especially for someone brand new to singing! I'm 53 and new to singing and Zelda makes every lesson fun as well as giving me solid lessons and homework to work on for the next week. So far I've learned posture, breathing and vocal health exercises that will also help me as a trainer who often speaks for long periods during the work day. But the best part is that I'm really enjoying singing and feeling more confident in my voice all the time! I'm looking forward to continuing to work with Zelda and I highly recommend her to others just starting out.
I really enjoyed lessons from Zelda! I am an absolute beginner in my mid years, Zelda is very patient and experienced. She made learning very enjoyable!!
Zelda is the best! She has so much positivity and patience. She makes the lessons enjoyable and enriching, so happy to be working with her.
