YLCHIN'S VOICE & PIANO STUDIO
About this pro
Yen Lin is an excellent teacher. She explains concepts well and makes sure you understand before proceeding. She has a beautiful voice. I highly recommend her.Jun 11, 2016
Yen thought me a lot in piano. I started my lessons with her less than 3 months ago, although it was for a short period, I couldn't imagine that I will learn so much from her. She is an excellent teacher and great pianist . First, she knows how to teach beginners and basics cuz when I first took my lessons I didn't know anything about piano, and the lessons she provided were step by step lessons that have a lot of helpful techniques. I kept noticing my improvement every week which made me really glad. Second, she thought me the music that I really like, although it was hard, i finally did it all with no mistakes thanks to here. She was flexible on what we go through in the lessons cuz sometimes i was lazy to work on the book so we work on the music that I like which is more fun lol. Unfortunately i will move out from California, but i will try to take lessons with her via Skype cuz I know I can get a lot better in piano with her excellent lessons. I would really recommend her.Dec 1, 2015
I began voice lessons with Yen Lin in 2013 with absolutely no background in voice whatsoever, and in the back of my mind I thought I'd never be all that great. I was given a variety of wonderful exercises to really help me find the right technique. After working with her for two years, I would definitely say I have improved immensely, I have the confidence I need to pursue performing in musical theatre shows, and I even took away a few solid audition songs to use from these lessons. Lesson times were very flexible, which was great for my busy, changing schedule. I really really enjoyed working with and learning form Yen Lin as she was patient and encouraging yet pushed me and inspired me to reach my full potential. She's a fantastic teacher and the sweetest person and I would recommend her to anyone looking to hone their technique and performance skills or anyone who is just beginning and looking to find their inner vocal power. Not to mention her talent is out of this world!Oct 23, 2015
Voice lessons with Yen Lin were a life and mind-expanding experience for me. She nurtured me and encouraged me to perform at high standards. Importantly, she was willing and able to instruct according to my broad range of interestsclassical, Broadway, and popular. So, at times, she worked me through the complexities of operatic pieces, and at other times she taught me how to confidently belt out a Broadway tune. We worked with several languages: Italian, French, German, and English. She expressed fluency in all of them. As a beginner, I especially needed work on my phrasing and bringing meaning to the words. Yen Lin had the technical and emotional understanding needed to make my singing come alive. I always left my lesson instilled with confidence, enthusiastic to learn the new pieces, and generally inspired. As a busy professional, I needed a voice instructor to be flexible, and Yen Lin was happy to accommodate my schedule. Yen Lin herself has the most beautiful voice. I miss singing with her so much.

By 2006, I had achieved my voice and piano Grade Eight Certificates from ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) and Vocal Performance Certificate from the Trinity Guildhall Examination Board with Merit and Distinction. Being the Overall First Prize winner in the 2004 National Secondary School Singing Competition, I gained a full scholarship at the Malaysian Institute of Art. In 2007, I graduated with a Diploma in Music(major in voice and minor in piano) and was recognized with the Best Student award. During these seven years, I performed and won numerous prizes in Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and Tokyo. With this international accomplishment, I transferred to the United States and accepted a full scholarship at Louisiana State University, where I completed, magna cum laude and 4.0 GPA, my Bachelor of Music in 2013, and Master of Music in 2015. I'm actively performing to challenge myself to be a better musician.
