Associate Vocal Coach
Carmen found her passion for singing at the age of 9 when she started taking vocal lessons with one of Toronto’s most well known singing coaches. At the age of 15, she began taking vocal classes with Christine Samson under the Speech Level Singing method - a point at which she began to see her voice truly excel and develop. With the confidence she had gained in her vocals, she began competing in many of Toronto’s most popular singing competitions, which ultimately began her singing career. Working with two of the major media broadcast agencies in Canada, she performed for their various events as well as helped make demos for well-known Hong Kong artists.
After working extensively with local TV stations and performing at many corporate functions, she came across an opportunity to work with a newly formed band, Parliament Music Group. They were invited to perform at many large charity organizations, such as World Vision, Cancer Society, and the Heart and Stroke Foundation. She was also a backup vocalist for the Hong Kong artist, Jason Chan (陳柏宇) during his concert in Toronto.
Finally, before her departure to Hong Kong, where she would pursue her MBA at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, she performed her first feature concert together with her band in 2011.
Since being in Hong Kong, Carmen has stayed active musically, teaching young students at home part-time while she had her full time job as a Brand Manager and Marketing Strategist. Carmen expresses great passion for helping students develop their voice and confidence performing on stage. Because of her extensive experience in singing competitions and performing publicly, she is often approached as a mentor by individuals who are preparing for shows or competitions.
Carmen can fluently conduct her classes in both Cantonese and English and have an extensive repertoire of different genres, including R&B, Musical Theatre, Children’s Disney Songs, Pop, Rock, Jazz, and Country.
