Jerry

Vocal
Pop, Rock, Ballads, Classics

2010 Fairchild Television New Talent Singing Competition - Champion - Best Stage Performance Award | 2015 Fairchild Radio Song Quest VIII Chinese Song Writing Competition - Champion - Best Production Award | Taste of Asia - Best Vocalist Award

English, Cantonese, Mandarin
 

Jerry started out like all of the performers out there, hoping to sing better but at the same time frustrated about the limitations of his own voice.

As a start, Jerry spent a long time searching through different vocal coaches and different techniques but most of them lacks immediate results. That is because most traditional singing teachers will try teach you how to sing by giving you a discription of what you should be "feeling" when you are using certain techniques instead of giving clear instructions and teaching you the science behind it.

 

With exploring his voice for more than 10 years and performing professionally worldwide (Canada, China, Macau, Hong Kong) for seven years, Jerry has combind the traditional techique with science and his own formulated methods into a set of fun and simple exercise for teaching different vocal tones and style. With his experience on stage, Jerry can also help students to identify what the audience truly wants to see and hear, how to increase your charisma, and also the "realistic" techiques to use on stage when you are performing or if you are trying to win an award in a singing competition.

 

No matter you are a beginner or you are already a professional performer for many years, Jerry will be able to see and point out your bad voice habits, increase your range, refine your singing tone, find your style, get audience attention and also let you gain your control over your voice IMMEDIATELY.
