Rasie your speaking voice to new heights with expert guidance from an experienced teacher
Our voice is one of many ways to communicate, it is a gift and an amazing gift at that. Our voice can be used to communicate, interact, teach, tell a story, display how we feel, transport people’s hearts to another place or time; to name a few. Being able to use your voice is one thing but to also be able to perform and have your audience receive you well takes skills and training. I will help you engage with your audience while you display your art through your voice.
About Chau K.

My name is Chau and I am a transplant from Australia. I’ve lived in Las Vegas for the last 19 years. I have a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Western Sydney, New South Wales, Australia and University of Nevada, Las Vegas, majoring in vocal performance and music technology. I am a wife to my husband and a mother to our four children. I've been teaching voice for over 20 years and have loved every minute of it because I truly care about my craft and more importantly, my students and their creative goals. I was a Music Specialist at Merryhill School in Las Vegas, teaching K-8th Grade, until I became pregnant with my second child. I've also worked in church worship teams for the past 20+ years, both in Australia (Sydney and Brisbane) and Las Vegas, Nevada. My faith dictates the way I live my life and as a young child, my dad taught me to always strive for excellence in all that I do — this mentality has undoubtedly motivated my teaching career. My students can count on a teacher who is prepared and creative in developing a learning experience that will exponentially €œgrow€ them in their creative field. I inherited my love for singing from my Mum — as a child I watched her perform and wished that I could one day do the same. At the age of 16, after auditioning, I was selected to be a part of the New South Wales Senior (High School) State Choir and as a result, I toured the USA in 1999 representing the Australian Embassy in the United States. This was around the same time that I caught “œthe bug€” and decided to pursue music as a career. I then went on to study music, first briefly at the Music Conservatorium in Sydney and then finishing my Bachelor's degree in Music at the University of Western Sydney. I was first classically trained vocally and with that background, moved onto more contemporary vocal styles. After marrying my husband, I moved to Las Vegas and began my graduate studies in Counseling/Psychology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Music and Counseling, to me, made the perfect marriage as I love music and love people equally. Needless to say, teaching music and helping people has made my life very fulfilling. *** Studio Equipment *** Live Sound and Recording Equipment Intelligent Piano Sitting area for Parents/Guardian I will provide students with the necessary materials needed for instruction. *** Specialties *** I specialize in vocal techniques, and diaphragm/breathing techniques. As far as style or genre are concerned, I use both, my experience in classical voice training and contemporary voice training, to keep my students engaged in their craft. I listen well to my student's needs and meet them where they are at, ensuring that I meet their creative goals and not my own.

TLDR: - Excellent understanding of voice mechanics and able to explain them in various ways until that aha moment goes off in your mind (and voice). - We worked together remotely for a year while I was living in Egypt. She was able to help me make progress through low quality ear buds (mic on a Mac is better but I didn't have one at the time). She has an almost unbelievable ability to understand how you're positioning your body (diaphragm, throat, vocal chords, lips, larynx, and even where you're aiming the sound in your mouth) to make sound. - Patient and comfortable to be around--which is important when you feel vulnerable singing. - Able to meet you where you're at whether total beginner or experienced singer. Chau is an incredible vocal coach / singing instructor. She's superb at explaining things so that you know what you're doing not just how to do it. Why is that important? Because Chau wants you to get to a point where your voice is stellar and you're free to be independent of her. That's hard to find in an instructor, because their business relies on people continuing to see them. I've worked with Chau for nearly 2 years. When I first started I felt awkward making sounds. I felt my speaking voice was robotic and monotone. I wanted to be more expressive with it--do impressions and play with my voice like when I was a kid. Chau has helped me strengthen my voice. I have control over it. I can make high and low pitched sounds easily. We're still working to strengthen my upper middle range as some would call it, but I make progress at least bi-weekly (if not every week). Sometimes my voice surprises me. Times when in the past I know my voice would crack or become light or just be awkward and all of a sudden instead it sounds relax and confident. The impact these experiences have had on my life are not quantifiable. Chau's help understanding diaphramatic breathing has improved my ability to relax during meditation as well. Chau herself has a family of 6 and is very down to earth. You can talk with her. She's understanding and also determined. As Chau would say the voice is the most beautiful instrument there is. When you understand how to work with it (which really means letting go of bad habits we've added on top of it) it's powerful and vibrant all by itself.

Chau has been an amazing instructor! She is genuine, helpful, and super passionate in helping me grow as a vocalist. What I love is that she emphasizes the importance to love your voice and that has been stuck with me through my training process with her!

Chau is great at what she does! Her teaching style is very straightforward and makes efficient use of the lesson time. However, she is still very patient to work on an area that I would struggle with, so she is very thorough that anything is fully understood. She is professional and very personable, so it made a timid singer like me really feel more comfortable and be able to actually start working on my voice.
