About Me

Born and raised in Penang, Malaysia, I have been teaching voice and speech to actors, corporate workers and university students since 2012. I am currently the Head Tutor for the subject, Clear Speech and Communication at The University of Melbourne where I help international students achieve better accuracy and fluency in spoken English, build self-confidence and develop effective communication skills. I have taught students throughout Asia – from Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam to Hong Kong, Macau, China, South Korea, Japan, Sri Lanka and India.

 

PHILOSOPHY
Speak to be understood, not heard.” Students and clients who study with me begin their journey by working on their instrument and craft – they will learn how to free their body, breath and voice from poor, unhealthy habits whilst cultivating habits that promote healthy vocal function and effective voice use. They will then explore the significance of words in every utterance and learn how to connect them to their meaning; to breathe life into the spoken word. The final and perhaps most crucial step focuses on communicating those words to the “other”; the audience, the listener, the spectator.

 

EDUCATION
I hold an MA (Master of Arts) in Voice Studies from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London as well as the Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA). For my undergraduate studies, I completed an Arts degree at Monash University (Clayton) where I majored in English, Behavioural Studies, Drama and Theatre Studies.

 

THEATRE
As a theatre voice and dialect coach, some of the shows that I have worked on include NEXT TO NORMAL (Pursued by Bear), CLOSER (Loose Canon Theatre Company), THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (Ballarat Lyric Theatre Company), OUR HOUSE (University of Melbourne Music Theatre Association), TITANIC THE MUSICAL (StageArt), THE COLOR PURPLE (StageArt), and ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS (Heidelberg Theatre Company).

 

WORKSHOPS
I have been running group workshops and drop-in classes since 2015. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all workshops will be conducted virtually until further notice. In 2022, I will be running two brand new workshops:

  • Free Your Authentic Voice
  • Show Me Your Story

If you would like to know more about these workshops, or if you would like me to run a customized workshop for your students or employees, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
