I remembered singing a song with my classmates for a performance during my JC days. We sang different parts and were led by our monitress who is choir trained. That experience sparked a desire in me to be trained in vocals. Enrolling in BM vocal class in Jan 2023 was like a dream come true. My coach is passionate, patient and fun. Under her guidance, my classmates and I learnt so much. We look forward to lessons every week. Our coach’s rapport with us is so strong that at the end of each term, we are certain we want to continue on in her class again! Looking forward to our 5th term with her. 😊

Thanks to my coach for being such a wonderful and encouraging voice coach. I have been singing in my church for a while, yet there are so many singing techniques that the coach taught that I did not know before. My coach pointed out where my pitching issue is - I have a habit of scooping and not singing right on the note. I am thankful for this revelation or otherwise I would have continued with this bad habit. On hindsight, I should have started my lessons way, way before, so I would encourage those into serious singing to start formal learning early. One feature I must mention is Believer Music allows for makeup lessons which I really have benefited immensely due to my unpredictable schedule.
God bless my coach! Thank you Believer Music! Thanks to my classmates who have made the learning journey joyful!

17 June marks the finale of my Believer Voice lessons from Primer stage all the way to AWDIV -- 7 terms of 11 weeks. I gave it my all today and did my best and I still cannot believe that I can do the high notes!!! Come to think about all the weeks of lessons, it's immense improvement for me! Thank God for sending such great coaches to me at Believer Music.
Thank God for answering my prayers to have someone who is able to relate how I had difficulties and needed corrections which I couldn’t convey in musical terms but our dear Coach was able to catch and understand my problems and corrected me in such direct and simple ways through layman terms. As I do not have musical background at all, I just purely wanted to sing unto the Lord and Worship Him.
Thank God for blessing such a great instrument within me as a human being and with Coach's valuable vocal teachings. They are precious!
I am just a working adult but I have learnt a lot and I appreciate and believe that our vocal classes can really help us SING! Take up the challenge to journey with Believer Music and their coach! If I can do it, you can do it!
Coach, you are doing great! Will miss you and all the lessons!

I have always wanted to learn singing. Through the Believer Voice Primer module, I learnt the correct techniques to carry out voice projections. With the encouragement of my voice coach, I learnt to step out of my comfort zone to sing higher notes which I couldn’t do in the past.
What I like about the program is that there is progress checking throughout the program, giving us insights about our singing techniques, rhythm and pitch. During the progress check, the Coach will provide feedback and encouragement to individuals to work on the areas which we are weak in. The coach also compliments us upon mastering the correct technique.
Thank you Coach, for the 11 weeks of devotion and serious learning which were also fun at the same time!
I’m reaching the end of my second module of the Voice Program with an amazing coach! I really look forward to weekly lessons with her. She makes sure every student gets the right technique and makes progress. Her passion for singing and to pass on her skills to others is very inspiring. I leave every session spiritually and technically built up. Thank you coach! :))

I am currently attending Worship Dynamics II of the Voice Program. My classmates and I are absolutely enjoying the lessons every single week. We record the lessons on our mobiles and diligently practice the vocal exercises and songs before the next lesson. We can feel the improvement in our singing week after week. Love the lessons!
I came across the Believer Music poster on Christmas Eve at Singapore Bible Society. It spoke to me and I made a mental note to myself.
Shortly after, I signed up for a Voice trial class and it wasn't a hard decision to decide on the module.
During classes, I was able to connect with the inner child within me. It felt like a beam of sparkle and joy from within. At times childlike, at times worshipfully.
I didn't enjoy singing at karaoke but instead, I truly enjoy singing in the classes.
My voice Coach is very encouraging and I enjoy her piano accompaniment while singing the songs.
Music and dance are somewhat related and I look forward to reinforce the foundations and techniques through the next two levels. And yes, I would like to sing in a choir and learn more about different aspects of music.
It has indeed been a fruitful journey for me. I do not have any singing background and did not dare to sing aloud as I know I’m always singing out of tune. Over the months in the Voice Program, I learnt interesting vocal exercises that helped me improve tonal stability, song dynamics, harmony, etc. I've since seen improvement in my singing, and always looking forward to attending the next lesson.
Our Voice coaches have been very encouraging, helpful and patient. In addition, they are very attentive, kind and considerate; which helped to dispel my fear of singing. Thank you coaches for walking through this journey with me. I am indeed very blessed to have you teaching us. I would very much like to continue to learn and improve with more voice lessons :)
Wishing all at Believer Music the best in every endeavor you undertake in the new year.
In Christ I remain,
It took me a long time to gather enough courage to sign up for singing lessons. As a very bad singer, I initially had lots of reservation and insecurities. I am indeed very blessed to have a Voice Coach who is very patient and proficient. She is very encouraging and that helps to boost my confidence. From the Primer module to Worship Dynamics I now, I feel my singing continuously improve week after week, and I constantly look forward to the lessons.
Looking forward to signing up for Worship Dynamics II!
I have just completed Advanced Worship Dynamics I and it was such an amazing journey.
Harmonizing with my classmates is very challenging but we made it at the end of the presentation. How awesome to complete the finale!
I thank our previous Voice Coach for his attention and the many tips and teachings that helped us improve our singing. It was great to have him around.
Also thankfully, the new Voice Coach is awesome! My singing technique has improved tremendously with her clear and precise information to help improve.. She is able to accurately correct how I should sing properly and able to relate to the steps I need to take.
She is also very experienced, sharing with us lots of other tips to warm up our vocal cords and diaphragm. I have decided to continue to the next level with her around.
I encourage all to come and learn with Believer Music for a whole new different experience!
It is going to be another exciting one.

Who should sign up for this module? Am I eligible to sign up?
Those who do not possess:
i) Prior understanding of the fundamental workings of the voice.
ii) Practical knowledge and practice with the efficient techniques of breathing and diaphragmatic muscle control.
*Should you have prior playing experience, use the Online Course Allocator to identify the module most suitable for you.
NOTE: Should Believer Music Coaches find any student mismatched in any particular module, we reserve the right to transfer the student to another class after the first session to optimize the learning experience.
Is there an age limit?
We accept registrations from ages 13 and up. However, we strongly advise students aged 12yrs to meet with our coach to assess their suitability for the course. Call us at 6323 0304 to arrange an appointment.
We will also channel students to classes of compatible age groups whenever possible.
I can sing, so why are vocal lessons necessary?
The voice is a very unique instrument, simply because YOU ARE THE INSTRUMENT! Understanding how your voice works for you will help you discover the fullest potential of this God-given gift. This module touches on the basic concepts of breathing, control of diaphragmatic muscles and resonance, all essential practical knowledge which will set your foundation right and enhance your singing voice. In fact, these are fundamental concepts equally applicable & necessary for all, whether you sing only in your own personal time, or serve on the platform ministries.
I can already sing in my personal time. How can this course truly help me improve for platform ministries?
The Believer Voice Program works on developing the voice and instills an overall sense of musicianship. A good grounding in vocal techniques, diction, rhythm orientation, harmony, pitching, working with instruments, and interpretation, helps develop that sense of confidence and wholesomeness in your singing, setting your voice free as you praise God.
Are there any limitations if I have a health condition?
There may be limitations, depending on the nature of your health problem. We have had some students with various health conditions attend our lessons, of which vocal training actually improved the state of health and mind for them. This is largely due to the emphasis on breathing the natural way, as well as the relaxing mode of the activity itself. As singing is physical, and with its performance largely dependent on one's physical state, students are encouraged and advised to take good care of their vocal health.
This is a 11-week intensive module. What does it cover? Is it sufficient?
The Primer module provides an all-round education for the singer in the worship setting. This includes the study of basic vocal technique, diction, rhythm orientation, harmony, pitching, working with instruments, and the interpretation of songs. Development of your singing skills comes with consistent practice while adopting the methods acquired in the Primer program. You may then choose to take your singing higher by continuing with the higher modules.
How long will it take me to sing well?
It varies from person to person. We need to consider the individual’s entry level (i.e. the number of years of singing actively), and the degree of discipline. Results have shown that students who were diligent and consistent with their practice often reap the best results. In this intensive program, we will guide you towards achieving your maximum results within a short time.
I sing off-pitch and sad to say, I am tone deaf. How can this program help me?
Sadly, "tone deafness" has become a stigmatizing label and has locked many into a fear of releasing their voices. In fact, genuinely "tone deaf" cases are rare. Most, who claim they are tone deaf, really aren't. Often, not being able to pitch has to do with not hearing a pitch carefully before physically singing it. Some experience difficulty in pitching due to the strain of notes on the extreme ranges. The Believer Voice Program adopts an approach which helps students with these pitching issues.
I play a musical instrument. Why do I need to sing?
Singing, a universal gift for all carries with it several dimensions - it mirrors our emotional state, our spiritual state, and our physical state from within. With over 200 references to singing in the bible, singing is undeniably a fundamental aspect in worship. Where worship is concerned, singing goes hand in hand with the instruments. "Come before His presence in singing" (Psalm 100:2b), "Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song" (Psalm 95:2). "Sing unto Him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise" (Psalm 33.3). "… Be filled with the Spirit; speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord" (Eph 5:18-19)
