THE sole authorised school in Brunei for Yamaha Music Education, Symphony Music will offer vocal classes from March 1 by Brunei-born international recording artist and song-writer Maria Grace Koh.
Maria, better known by her stage name “Eia”, has a wide repertoire of experience performing locally and abroad with her most recent significant success being competing the World Championship of Performing Arts (WCOPA) in 2014 in Hollywood.
The talented musician then bagged four Gold, one Silver, one Bronze and four Overall Division Champion titles, and she is all set to return this year as the Official Hostess for the Championship.
Her passion for singing and performing did not stop there as she worked closely with Indasoul Entertainment, Hollywood on releasing her new hit single “That’s The Way”, which will be followed by an EP Album next month.
Having her first formal training in music at Symphony Music School when she enrolled in the Junior Music Course (JMC) at the tender age of three, Maria then went on to complete the ABRSM Grade 8 Piano few years later and from then on, her career in music took off and she has never looked back since.
“I first learned the piano at Symphony Music School some 20 years ago and I have had many memorable experiences during my music career. It is only right for me to share my experiences and what I learned over the years to others and Symphony Music School created the platform to do just that”, said Maria.
At the school, Maria will be conducting vocal classes covering a wide range of genres from Contemporary Pop to Broadway and Jazz where students will be trained in all aspects of singing and performing, including learning new songs, song interpretation, crowd control and onstage gestures.
There are no age limit to enroll and the classes are open to anyone interested in learning the proper techniques to reach the full potential of their voice.
“This new vocal class by Symphony Music School is very exciting and beneficial for those interested in taking their music to the next level. I am confident that students will gain more knowledge and improve their vocals from the comprehensive training we offer in these classes”, added Maria.
Symphony Music School offers a wide range of music lessons ranging from piano, guitar and vocal lessons for all ages and each class is equipped with Yamaha music products.
These equipment are courtesy of Acoustic Innovations, the sole distributor of Yamaha music products, and range from music instruments, music accessories, music production tools, audio visual and PA system.
The new vocal classes are now open for registration. More information on the types of courses and services offered can be obtained by calling Symphony Music School at 243 0573.
