If you are reading this, you are taking the first step to letting go of doubts and fears and allowing yourself to become the singer you have always wanted to be. I will help you get there. I used to have horrible stage fright. And when people complemented me, I thought they were just being polite. I have been there and slayed that dragon, and I have the tools so you don't have to figure it out. Imagine how spiritually fulfilling it would be to feel confident, connected to your soul, and have wonderful singing skills. I won't just tell you to do it, I'll teach you HOW to make it happen.

Welcome to ZingliZh! Maybe it's stage fright. Or maybe you just want to sound better at Karaoke or feel comfortable singing Happy Birthday. Or maybe you sing in a band and your voice gets tired after a few songs. Do your high pitches sound thin, or does your voice crack?  Even if you feel you can't carry a tune, or are clueless about music, that's okay.

About me: I am a certified voice technician as well as a vocal coach for contemporary styles like folk, pop, rock, jazz, and musical theatre. There are different styles, textures and vocal co-ordinations with contemporary singing that isn't allowed in classical singing. So much freedom! I teach based on how the body/vocal instrument works, dealing with the specific muscles you are using to sing. I will teach you some basic anatomy so you know what's going on in there!  AND make it EASY for you to sing. I can also help you prepare a song for performance,  

In my classes and in my private lessons, I design isolation exercises especially crafted for your individual instrument. These unique exercises are based on your needs at the moment: perhaps to break an old habit or to work specific muscles of your singing instrument to gain strengthen and flexibility.

Immediate results happen because I teach based how the body/vocal instrument works so singing can become EFFORTLESS!  All very fun stuff, and educational, too. You'll learn why I call it ZingliZh... And what's with the  shield and soup ladles?
