Music lessons with me: I am a kind, patient and fun tutor, I love inspiring people with my passion for music, and using creative approach to help different students.
Singing students: from kids who love singing Disney songs to adults who pass ABRSM Grade 8 Singing Exam. I am confident in teaching students at all ages and levels. Apart from teaching classical singing students, I help non-classical singers with their vocal techniques, musicianship, performing skills and confidence.
Piano students: from learning classical repertoire to anime songs, pop songs, hymns and Christmas carols.
Languages: I am fluent in three languages (English, Cantonese and Mandarin), and I also sing in five other languages (Latin, Japanese, Italian, German and French).
Other teaching experience: Flute, Music Theory, Songwriting and English
Hong Kong British soprano HoYan Chui (崔皓昕) has recently completed Master and Bachelor of Music at the Royal Northern College of Music under the tutelage of Susan Roper. She is now a full-time singing and piano tutor based in Manchester, while continuing her singing lessons with Susan Roper and Peter Wilson.
As an active singer and actress, she has participated in several opera productions: Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro by Mozart, Mabel in The Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert and Sullivan, Papagena in Die Zauberflöte by Mozart, Adele (cover) in Die Fledermaus by J. Strauss and Moth in A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Britten. Opera scene roles include Gretel in Hänsel und Gretel by Humperdinck, Despina in Cosi fan tutte by Mozart, Barbarina in Le Nozze di Figaro by Mozart, Rose in Ruddigore by Gilbert and Sullivan, and Agathe in Véronique by Messager. She has also sang in professional and college opera chorus in both Hong Kong and the UK: Faust by Gounod (Opera Hong Kong), Street Scene by Weill (Royal Northern College of Music) and Iphigenie auf Tauris by Gluck (Hong Kong Arts Festival).
She has worked with international acclaimed singers Amanda Roocroft, Christopher Purves, and Linda Richardson in classes at college. During her Opera North Residency in 2019 and 2020, she was delighted to work with director Jo Davies, conductor Jim Holmes and repetiteur Philip Voldman.
Her first opera at the RNCM has won Best Opera of 2015 Manchester Theatre Awards. ‘It’s a magical piece and was given a magical production, with impressive singing from a multi-talented cast’, Robert Beale commented. Moreover, HoYan has received Yeung Chi Hung Scholarship in 2010 for her outstanding music performance in high school, and has passed several ABRSM Grade 8 examinations: Vocal (with distinction), Flute and Piano (both with merit). Furthermore, HoYan has won many awards in vocal, piano, flute and recorder competitions.
She joined Streetwise Opera, an award-winning charity in 2017, helping homeless and vulnerable people in the UK through music and theatre. While promoting and introducing operas, she inspired people with her singing and acting. In 2018 and 2019, she took part in RNCM Children's Opera: The Hammer of Thor and The House of Sweets. This project involved a lot of talented primary school students, and it was a pleasure for her to work and perform with them.
I offer a free 30-minute consultation with new students. It can either be chatting about goals and expectations, or a short music lesson.
