Your Technical Vocal Coach

About Me

Hi! I am Teik Poi Metropoli Tan. I am a Technical Vocal Coach and owner of Vocal Progress. My vocal teaching is based on knowledge of vocal anatomy and physiology. I help vocal coaches develop skills and strategies in voice teaching so that they can create high quality learning environments in their studios.


My Story

He studied Künstlerische Gesangsausbildung and Gesangspädagogik at the Music Academy of Cologne, focusing on the genres of German Lieder, opera, and oratorio. Later in his studies, he placed greater emphasis on vocal pedagogy.

My Mission

Encourage students become independent learners. Motivate them  to take control of their own voice learning and development in vocal techniques.
