Dear voice teachers, be honest, is this you...

I know how you feel...
Hi, I'm Teik Poi Tan, a dedicated technical vocal coach with a PhD in music, with a focus on voice pedagogy.
I'm passionate about helping singers, vocal coaches, and choir conductors reach their full potential. I've been fortunate to pursue an education in a career path that I'm deeply passionate about. I earned my first degree in Malaysia and furthered my studies in vocal performance and voice pedagogy at the esteemed Cologne University of Music and Dance.
During my studies, I realized the crucial importance of possessing solid vocal techniques and vocal control across both classical and non-classical singing styles. I also noticed a recurring pattern among many voice teachers who were well-known singers and musicians. They excelled in their singing and had an impressive repertoire, but they often lacked the essential skills and abilities to effectively teach vocal techniques.
This realization drove me to seek out the guidance of renowned vocal teachers. Their invaluable mentorship, combined with my PhD studies, enabled me to hone my artistic development and teaching expertise.
Today, I'm dedicated to empowering singers, vocal coaches, and choir conductors with the knowledge and skills they need to reach their full potential. Through my vocal technique workshops, I offer a supportive and nurturing environment for individuals to refine their craft and overcome vocal challenges.
Whether you're an aspiring singer seeking to improve your performance, a vocal coach looking to enhance your teaching abilities, or a choir conductor aiming to elevate your choir's vocal prowess, I'm here to guide and support you on your journey. Together, we will unlock the full potential of your voice and solve any vocal hurdles you may encounter.
Let's embark on this transformative musical journey together!
