Who Am I and How Am I Qualified to Teach Singing?


Dear singer,

My name is Benny Ng. I’m a contemporary singer and singing teacher/vocal coach. I’ve been singing for over 14 years. I’ve been teaching singing lessons in Sydney since 2012.

My qualifications include: BMus (Performance), Diploma in Audio Engineering, Grad Dip Mus (Vocal Pedagogy) and Grad Dip Ed (Secondary). I’ve graduated from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and learned from some of the best teachers in the music industry. I’ve also been composing and writing songs since 2007.

I'm accredited with BOSTES (Board of Studies NSW), Department of Education (DEC Full Approval), a member of APRA|AMCOS with a Working with Children Check clearance number. Working as a music teacher at Dulwich High School of Visual Arts and Design, I was also the director of the school's vocal ensemble.

You might have seen the instructional videos that I posted on SingNow Studio FB page (with thousands of views) or the cover songs videos on my YouTube channel.

But it wasn’t always like this. Especially in the beginning, my singing progress was slow and difficult.

I was born and raised in Malaysia. I moved to Sydney 10 years ago to study music. I was introduced to a fantastic singing teacher and I was making great progress in singing. However, that teacher moved interstate and from then on, I had a string of bad teachers who taught me dubious techniques and I had trouble building a rapport with them. My singing suffered as a result.

Then I decided to take things into my own hands. I studied the vocal anatomy relentlessly and had the help and guidance of excellent lecturers at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. My singing improved steadily and pretty soon, I gained more confidence in my voice.

In 2011, I decided to take it one step further. I wanted to teach what I know to others. I wanted to be the teacher that I wish I had. I vowed to be patient and empathetic towards my students. Above all, I wanted to design and plan each singing lesson to the individual student's strengths and interests. This way, I could help my students improve the areas that they needed to work on - helping them improve faster. And this is where you come in. I want to be there for you on your journey of learning to sing. I want to help you be the best singer you can be.

Why is Learning to Sing So Difficult?

That’s because learning to sing can be very abstract. Unlike a guitar or a piano, there are no keys to press and no strings to strum when you sing. Your body is your instrument - your mind and imagination is the key to controlling your voice. Just like a guitarist controls the guitar using hands/fingers, you control your voice using your mind and imagination.

See, you already have what you need to sing: your voice box/larynx, your lungs and your brain.

What you need is to learn how to make them work together as a whole - as a musical instrument!

What Students Think of Benny

Austin playing guitar and singing
 
"We decided to do some singing lessons over the school holidays to boost our son's confidence with his guitar performance. He had been playing for a few years but was shy with his singing. Benny was very encouraging and really helped to improve his singing in just six weeks! Thank you so much."
 
Jacqui (Northern Beaches)

"Hi Benny,Thank you so much for making me aware of the tension and the breath I need to sing. Sounds simple but I needed reminding!!

Since my lesson I have been doing relaxed breathing and have really noticed how tense it was and how much I need to let my jaw go. Not sure if it was anything to do with my breathing before bed but I even slept better, it's been two years since I haven't woken in the night!

And today I walked for an hour and a half doing [the new] breathing [exercise] and came home and managed to sing a relaxed Mariah Carey song!!! It's been years!! My husband couldn't believe it.

I'm going to work so hard at this thanks so much for triggering the start of something great and the summary and exercises!!"

Kristy (Northern Beaches)

Harrison - singing lessons northern beaches, singnow studio
"Benny has been our sons coach now for over term and he has loved every lesson. Benny has a exceptional way with young children and young adults. He is patient, positive and enthusiastic always! Benny is incredibly talented and I highly recommend him! Thank you Benny!"
 
Pip (Northern Beaches)

"Thanks Benny for the lessons. Great fun and a great approach to instilling good practice techniques which have helped me gain a better quality to my singing voice (which was very necessary!!)."

Merrilee (Northern Beaches)


"Our nine year old daughter asked to have some singing lessons recently and when we came across Benny's web ad.  she decided to start.  She really enjoyed her lessons with Benny as he ensured that she had suitable breathing exercises and opportunities to learn songs that were engaging, current and age appropriate.  Throughout Benny demonstrated professionalism and enthusiasm.   He is clearly a committed teacher who used technology and scaffolded learning and teaching strategies in support of our daughter's learning.  I highly recommend Benny and thank him for his patience and calm and caring approach!"

Lauren (Northern Beaches)



 

 "Under Benny's guidance I have had enormous improvement in my singing. Teaching me many hard to acquire singing techniques Benny is full of tips and tricks on how to improve my vocals in any situation. He is very patient and understanding and his explanations are always easy to understand and simple. If you are looking to progress your singing career  through both fun and informative lessons then I strongly recommend Benny to be your next singing instructor. He will surprise you on how fun and rewarding singing can be."

Rachel (Sydney)



 

"...very intelligent and observant... will definitely get to the bottom of your singing blocks"

Mark (Sydney)

"He is a great teacher, kind and patient.
He knows how to improve your singing by giving a lot of advice, and lots of explaination. Try his class and you will never regret."
 
Jefri (Sydney)

"I am currently a student of Mr Benny Ng. I am a mature age male who up until recently had little knowledge of music and zero experience in singing. Benny will start you off correctly with a progression of exercises which will give you the ability to find your inner voice. Benny will show you many techniques and ensure you sing safely without straining or damaging your voice. Benny is patient and full of knowledge. He will assist you no matter your ability or interests in music. Singing isn't easy however Benny makes the first step easy and fun."

Would Your Voice Improve If You Do Nothing About It?

Taking singing lessons can be a daunting experience, especially if it was your first ever lesson.

Your inner voice tells you: "What if I sound horrible? What if the teacher tells me that I have no talent? What if I don't like the teacher?"

I firmly believe that if you can speak, you can sing. Everyone's voice is different due to genetics, prior training or even sheer passion. What's important is that you take the first step towards improving what you have. Under expert guidance and a keen listening ear, I believe that you will definitely improve your voice if you're willing to put effort into making it happen.

Singing Lessons, Singing Teacher - Sydney, Dee Why, Haymarket

It's very important to me that you enjoy your singing lessons. That's why I insist that you try one lesson for free. I want you to feel 100% sure before you continue. If you're not happy for any reason, just walk away and never hear from me again.

What Your First Lesson Will Be Like

The first lesson is when I get to know you a little better as a singer.

I'll ask you about: 

  • your singing experience (most people have only sung in the shower, and that is totally fine)
  • what you hope to get out of the lessons
  • your singing goals
  • your favorite music/songs you will like to learn

Then, I'll take you through some warm-up exercises and also find out your vocal range.

You'll have the chance to sing 2-3 songs.

I'll listen to your voice and give you some constructive feedback. I'll tell you what I think your strengths are and what you need to work on to improve your voice.

If you decide to continue lessons, I'll then use these information to help me plan your next lesson. That way, you get the maximum value for your lesson time - doing things that are aimed specifically at improving your voice.

Most people are nervous during their first lesson. So, if you do, I want you to know that it is perfectly normal to feel that way. Once I start taking you through the vocal warm-up and you start singing songs, the jitters will go away very quickly.
