Regular Students Recital
A student showcase performance is organised every April, August and December of the year for students to have the opportunity to perform, and experience performing on a stage to the public.
Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our students say:
“Before I started taking lessons with Bevlyn, I took lessons elsewhere for almost 2 years and progress was minimal there. After my first few lessons with Bevlyn I’ve made more progress than I ever did before. Bevlyn is a very encouraging teacher which helped so much and she makes every lesson fun and engaging. Would 100% recommend her to anyone who wants to learn how to sing !”
“I had vocal training under Bevlyn for a couple of years somewhere beginning 2006. I’ve had other vocal lessons prior to that but I felt that I wasn’t making any progress. Bevlyn demonstrated herself to be quite an amazing vocal trainer. She was able to highlight my strengths and weaknesses, and could apply specific techniques to help me improve. She was very meticulous in her approach, and also helped me to understand the many ways that voices could be projected, and the recommended way to project for different genre of songs. I also like the fact that she tried to keep the class fun by making us experiment with different genres like jazz, rock, as well as teaching us harmonizing techniques. I would definitely recommend her as a vocal teacher and is currently planning to send my daughter to be coached by her too!”
I started learning singing with Bevlyn half a year ago. I was mind blown that how much we can actually do with our voice. Bevlyn always has unique tricks to teach different individuals. I can feel my progress after every lesson. Despite the techniques that Bevlyn taught me, she is very patient and passionate about music. As an art student, I have crazy or stupid ideas sometimes, and Bevlyn always encourage and support me to achieve my ideas. Bevlyn also brought us out of the classroom to perform in the public. This experience gave us opportunities to test our skills, and meet new friends.
“I attended Bevlyn’s vocal classes for almost 2 years; and I transformed from a person who was afraid and shy of holding a mic to someone who is reluctant to let go of it during karaoke sessions. Bevlyn is a vocal teacher who doesn’t exert pressure on her students, but rather points out our weaknesses in singing, and motivates and encourages us to sing better. The fun and laughter she brought to the classes made us feel less stressful and we looked forward to each and every lesson.”
“Taking lessons from Bevlyn is light-hearted and a lot of fun. I like taking vocal lessons from Bevlyn because she is very patient in her guidance and explanation. I had a deep impression of how she is able to explain how to reach a higher note through “yawning”. She genuinely wants her students to enjoy the lessons, which is naturally realised with her positive and happy-go-lucky attitude. When there is a song I want to learn, Bevlyn takes her time to know the music which allows me to learn the songs that I like.”
“Had singing lessons with Bevlyn for about 2 years and I really enjoyed it. She taught us singing techniques, and being in a group class, everyone has different capabilities and limitations. Bevlyn was able to use a variety of methods suited to help each individual achieve the objective of the lesson. She is also very encouraging and gently pushes us to expand our boundaries to improve our singing. Class was always fun as we explored songs across different genres and even languages. Definitely highly recommended!!!
“Bevlyn is an encouraging teacher to have. We all need a teacher like her to enjoy our lessons to learn good skills yet keep our interests going. Her passion for music has influenced me positively. Her unique, attentive and detailed teaching method has improved my singing tremendously. Most importantly, I was really having fun for the 2 years of vocal classes with her.”
“Bevlyn was my vocal instructor for 3+ years. She was a very encouraging teacher and always provided a lot of constructive suggestions that helped me understand my vocals better and allowed me to easily grasp the techniques. I truly enjoyed all my lessons with her and I really feel very fortunate to have been mentored by her!”

What is the diaphragm?
The diaphragm is the major muscle of respiration. It is a large, dome-shaped muscle that contracts rhythmically and continually, and most of the time, involuntarily.
Where is my diaphragm?
The diaphragm is located below the lungs, and upon inhalation, the diaphragm contracts and flattens and the chest cavity enlarges.
But do you know…
… that the correct way of breathing for singing consists of 2 steps?
And do you know…
… that although most literature encourages diaphragmatic breathing, you should pay attention to another area of your body instead?
