Kenogi has had a natural inclination towards singing and performing ever since he was a little child, but sadly was never a good singer (it eventually turned out to be a blessing).
As a result, he decided to take voice lessons with several vocal coaches, but no one could fix his singing problems, causing him much anguish. Some of them told him that it was “impossible” to sing certain songs due to his supposedly fixed vocal range. He would later find out that it was only because he did not know how to access his upper register, and hence could only sing in his chest voice (aka the speaking voice).
Fortunately, after much research, he discovered a revolutionary vocal technique known as “Speech Level Singing”, created by Seth Riggs, the vocal coach to superstars like Michael Jackson, Barbra Streisand, Michael Bolton and Wang Leehom, to name a few. Upon experiencing the magic of a proper vocal training methodology, he made it his mission to share it with the world, and help others who were in similar situations.
Over the next 10 years of continuous vocal training and development, he would go on to win a singing competition, sing a National Day Parade theme song, serve National Service as a performing artist at the SAF Music & Drama Company, play a male lead in a musical, and sing at events islandwide.
To be the best teacher he can be, he constantly upgrades his teaching skills and knowledge from various sources, while considering his biggest influences IVA (duh!), Seth Riggs (and Speech Level Singing), Spencer Welch (an IVA Master Teacher) and John Henny.
His ability to correctly diagnose vocal issues, coupled with the proper prescription of effective vocal exercises that fix voices in ways deemed difficult or impossible by many, has resulted in great progress in all of his students' voices within very short amounts of time. He is also known for being highly passionate, emphatic, and patient.
Apart from Vocal Evolution - his own private practice, he is currently also a senior vocal instructor at MADDspace Singapore.
