Do you ever feel envious of people who seem so confident and don't quite struggle at performances?
Have you been invited to sing at karaokes or company functions and felt panicky about it because you feel so inept?
Or are you secretly wishing to become a professional singer and yearn to learn the right techniques for a huge repertoire, so that you can start taking gigs as a professional?
Whatever your ambition or goals are, I will impart all the techniques and insights you need to bring out the best singing voice in you.
Only if you want it for yourself.
Hi I'm Bevlyn
I'm professional singer, songwriter, singing teacher (wife and mom) who's spent over 15 years helping hundreds of people all over the world transform their singing.
With 20 years of singing experiences in corporate & wedding events and in pubs, I sing various genres including Top40s, Jazz, R&B, Classics, Musicals, Rock etc (in English, Mandarin, French, Japanese, Spanish, Korean, etc)
I believe in classical singing techniques to shape singing voices for popular music (and you'll still have a 'pop' sound don't worry!). I believe in knowing your own body to have control over your singing voice.
There can seem to be a million ways to approach singing but I assure you that once you understand how singing truly should feels like, singing can begin to feel less terrifying, more exciting, and so much more fun
(especially with those high notes!)
I currently teach private students, and at Singapore Raffles Music College, and SOMA (School of Music & The Arts).
Somewhere inside you is the maximum potential of your singing voice.

Why did I name it "SingingTechniques INT"?
My forte has always been teaching singing techniques (I especially love teaching total beginners from scratch, and polishing experienced singers to their best form!).
But it's not just about techniques, though they give you the fundamentals for your singing instrument.
It is also about your relationship with yourself, and your singing instrument:
I = Introspection
Singing requires a lot of introspection. Are you paying attention to your own feelings and thoughts? Are you paying enough attention to how your body feels? Singing requires a super high body awareness, and it is hence no surprise that people with a high body awareness find it much easier to learn and master singing, because they can adjust their body to do what the singing requires, faster.
It can be simple thoughts like, "Am i breathing correctly?", "Was I supporting for that phrase that I sang?", "Was my vocal placement high enough?, "What can I do better next?", etc
N = Nurture
People are almost always surprised by how disciplined (or deprived, depending on your perspective) singers need to be in order to upkeep their singing instruments, that is essentially their own body and health.
If our body, AND our health, is our singing instrument, are we keeping ourselves active to get a better breath going?
Are we stretching and exercising enough?
Are we sleeping enough, and well? (since there is a crucial relationship between sleep and the health of our vocal cords!)
Do we have a nurturing relationship with our mind too? For eg, are we kind to ourselves whenever we fail to hit a high note? Do we tell ourselves that we can be a work in progress and love our own voices too?
If regular water and sunshine are necessary for the best growth of a plant, are we supplying enough of what is required for our singing instrument to flourish and be at its best at all time?
T = Truth
The truth can refer to many aspects in singing.
Are we being authentic when we choose to sing in a certain way? Perhaps we like that style of singing when a certain singer sings it that way, but does it represent who we are in our innermost core?
What are we trying to prove? Are we trying too hard?
Is there a possibility that we are letting our ego take our singing down by insisting on singing the original key (which belongs to the original singer anyway!), OR NOT changing the key because we are scared to, or lazy to?
Is there any denial at all in all the choices we make for our singing instrument?
As we all know, the truth will set you free.
You can exhaust yourself trying to be impressive.
I know — you want to cover your fears, self-doubts, and mistakes and get yourself pitch perfect. I totally get it.
When we're on stage or in front of a room, what comes out of our mouths feels like it carries the weight of the world. Like it has the potential to make or break our sense of self, and the chance to impress the world.
What my students chalked up as a result of our lessons:
learn singing techniques from scratch, and have an efficient singing system
have their singing fine-tuned, with advice on what makes their voice unique, and what repertoire suit their vocal range and singing style.
gained insights on what work and what don't work for them as a stage performer
buffer them from potential mistakes and voice mishaps
improve on their pronunciation and projection in speaking (byproduct from singing correctly!)
We practice and build their skills—which expands their confidence.
But then I tell them something surprising:
It's not just all about the techniques.
And here's why...
Being technically 'perfect' are the foundations, but what keeps us going is the ability to truly connect with yourself, and your audience. That connection is what brings you the spring of joy.
So, don't wait another second longer to get there!
