I am a professional singer and voice teacher. I perform as a lead vocalist with a popular top 40 band in St. Louis and can be seen singing with several other well known bands in the city and region. I graduated from Southern Illinois University with a Bachelors of Jazz Vocal Performance. My versatility, experience and formal training helps me to make the learning experience easy, low stress and fun!
Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I will teach students ear training, and proper breathing and vocal technique as well as to read music and understand music theory if the interest exists. I tailor my approach to the needs of each students individual needs and goals.
I can help any student to sing with more freedom, confidence, and expression!
Some of the musical styles I regularly teach: Rock, Alternative, Pop, Musical Theatre, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Soul, R&B, Classical.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

Zelina has a warm manner that puts you at ease as a beginner and I thought she put great effort in creating a program to fit my need in the short time we have each week. Also it was fun.
Great lessons! Very happy I found a teacher who not only focuses on singing techniques, but helps instill confidence in me. Highly recommend!
