Personal Description:

Malaysian-born Chinese vocalist, Jia Jin (Soprano) began her singing journey by joining competitions in her hometown of Sarawak at the age of 3, Borneo including joining her secondary school choir group that was the National champion in the year 2005 and 2007. She started her vocal training in 2012 and has completed her Bachelor study in UCSI University, Malaysia - majoring in Classical Voice under the tutelage of Mr. Terence Au.

Mozart) and Gabrielle (La Vie Parisienne by Jacques Offenbach).
She joined the UCSI Concert Choir in 2012 and won Gold medal at the 11th China International Choral Festival. In her journey into music, she was the soprano section leader in secondary school choir, university Concert Choir, Junior Choir, Mixed Choir and Women’s Choir as an active choir member, she joined Kuala Lumpur Young Singers (KLYS) and Kuala Lumpur Vocal Ensemble (KLVE) under Young Choral Academy during her internship. She also accompanied on the piano for teachers, students, and friends during competitions, examinations and church music conferences. Jia Jin volunteered as Music History tutor and guest singer in different chamber music ensembles for 8 semesters in UCSI. The most recent ensemble was Brahms’ Liebeslieder Walzer, Op.52. In July 2014 she was invited to sing in the Asia Pacific Youth Choir (APYC) in Seoul, Korea.
Jia Jin participated in the Pro Musica Vocal Workshop in 2013, which was held in Penang conducted by renowned Soprano, Loh Siew Tuan. She worked with vocal coaches – Graham Johnson, Hein Boterberg, Michael Hampton, Inge Spinette and also stage director Benoir de Leersnyder.

Jia Jin has very strong passion in classical singing- especially in opera performance, as she loves to work with people. She wants to become a professional opera singer and share with people experiences she has as a dedicated musician. Opera contains artworks from different eras and cultures. It definitely helps in understanding the society in a deeper level. She wishes to reach out to the disadvantaged groups (especially children) and give free education so that they could enjoy music as much as she does.

Tutoring Experience:

Home tutoring - 11 years (Piano and classical singing )
Choir section leader - 9 years+in secondary school and undergraduate )

Tutoring Approach:

Emphasis in students benefit in getting the most out of their lessons. Love to have discussion with students and would encourage them to ask more questions regarding technical issues or musicality.

Concerning about what they want to achieve in life and help them to strengthen their personalities in pursuing music and passion to motivate themselves.

Some songs are provided and students are encouraged to have their own music (I will help if they couldn't find one)

Love to see students enjoy being themselves while learning to sing or to play an instrument. Music is a tool to healthy wellbeing.
