For singing lessons in Singapore, one of the available elite music institutes is OB Music Forest School, which operates within *SCAPE (2 Orchard Link).
Operated by Ocean Butterflies Music (established in 1986), an independent local record label, the institution is one of the biggest music schools in Singapore.
The main range of education includes professional pop vocal classes, song writing and music production courses.
In terms of individual courses, there is a regular course for Pop Vocal and professional courses within the OB Music Career Program (like Fundamentals of Song Composition & Music Arrangement and Advanced Song & Music Composition and Production Course).
…Advanced (term 1), Advanced (term 2), and finally Semi-Pro Vocal Performance Class (designed for those students who have completed the Advanced Level & wish to further pursue professional music education with a vocal coach).
During these steps, students will learn to:
- Increase their breath capacity
- Exercise power & control over the vocal cords
- Relax and reduce tension, preventing hoarseness and increasing their stamina
- Expand their range
- Improve pitch accuracy
- Develop a sense of rhythm and phrasing
- Develop a personal singing style
If you already can sing, there is an event called V-Singer (held biennially), produced by Ocean Butterflies, which debuted in 2012 and aims to discover the next talented icon in the music industry of Asia.
The company behind the singing lessons, Ocean Butterflies Music, has over the years successfully uncovered and groomed a range of local artistes – Kit Chan, A-Do, JJ Lin Jun Jie & BY2 – who have already made their mark regionally.
In addition to Singapore, Ocean Butterflies Music operates in four other regions: Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Malaysia.
