Teaching since:
April 1993

My name is Zuly. I'm a singer from Venezuela where I got my Bachelor's degree in Music with major in Voice. I began my teaching carrier in 1993 as an elementary school music teacher. I've also played viola and mandolin in orchestras and small ensembles. I have a passion for sharing and passing onto others what I've learned singing and playing through the years. Whether it is opera, baroque music, traditional or contemporary Christian music I thank God every day for the gift of music!

The IUDEM ran a music program for children during about three years which name was Crecer con la Musica (Growing with the Music). I was part of this program as a teacher and I learned that teaching children to play music is my passion. During this time I started learning about Maria Montessori, Suzuki, Dalcroze and Kodaly. All of them dedicated their lives on how kids learn or specifically how children should learn music.

Zuly is very knowledgeable. She is able to quickly pick up on the strengths and weaknesses in your voice and and gives you exercises and warm-ups that will specifically be helpful for you. The exercises and warm-ups she gave and gives me make a difference in my voice immediately. I was terrified to take lessons and sing in front of someone. I didn't know what to expect and was afraid of being judged, and worse, afraid of failing. Zuly made me feel comfortable right away, she helped me work through my nerves, she has never been intimidating. I just took my 5th lesson today and it was wonderful! My nerves are nearly gone and I just really enjoy myself. I'm so glad I decided to tackle my fear and do this for myself. I get better every week and plan to continue my lessons for a long time. I highly recommend Zuly!

Ms. Zuly was very nice and patient. I couldn't believe how much I was able to learn in just one lesson. She gave me things to practice over the next week to develop my skills. I'm already looking forward to my next lesson.

My experience with Zuly was great. She was always very attentive and interested in my goals. She tailored lessons in order to accomplish exactly what I wanted.
She is a very talented teacher with a humble personality despite her accomplishments in her field.
I would recommend Zuly to anyone who is looking to improve their abilities and develop their talents.

Zuly seems to have a genuine concern and willingness to find out where the student is and advance from there. Her enthusiasm is so high it encourages and gives you confidence you can succeed.

Zuly is an absolutely fantastic voice teacher. She is exceedingly patient and her love for music comes across in every single lesson. Also, she bends over backwards to accommodate my somewhat hectic schedule. I highly recommend Zuly to anyone looking for learn to sing (or play any of the instruments Zuly gives lessons for).

Great lesson. Zuly was very well prepared and had a lot of great materials and references for us. Very enjoyable. We are looking forward to our next lesson!

Ms. Zuly was able to train me so that I can now lead songs at my church. A feat previously thought impossible by me and my family (even my own mother). I began my lessons with absolutely zero knowledge and little hope. She was able to start teaching me on my level and build both my confidence and vocal skills. She was able to simplify complicated terms and concepts which helped me to progress quickly. Ms. Zuly is the most fun and energetic person on earth!

Zuly is a great teacher. She starts were you are and begins to increase your confidence and abilities through voice and breathing exercises. The best part is she will let you sing songs you want to sing. I am very pleased with my progress and I'm having a great time!

Zuly is my daughter's teacher and she is one of the best music teachers I've ever met! She has an amazing repertoire of music and is an expert when determining my children's vocal ranges and abilities. She is very professional and at the same time very, very compassionate. It is important to her that my children learn how their voices can be used musically but also she is teaching them musical theory. My daughters are 16 and 13 yet I did not learn musical theory until I was in college and the ways in which she is teaching them, it is outstanding.

As an extra bonus for those of you interested in taking lessons with her, Zuly's voice is absolutely spectacular! I heard her singing as a demonstration to my children and I was absolutely moved by the brilliance, texture and tone of her voice. She sounded very much like the famous world renown opera diva Kathleen Battle.

When choosing Zuly for your children (or yourself) one will definitely be impressed and blessed by the talent and passion she possesses.

My daughter, who just turned eight, takes singing lessons from Zuly and she loves it. I think it's because Zuly really knows how to teach younger students. She has a lot of patience and natural ability to teach children in a way that they are able to understand the music and singing. My daughter is learning breathing techniques and is learning to read music while having fun doing something she loves. We couldn't have asked for a better teacher!
