Welcome to Youbou Music
Intuitive. Individualized. Fun!
The voice in song is a beautiful human experience.
I've fell in love with solo and choral singing when I was 12 years old.
I graduated from the UBC School of Music in 2003 where I completed a Bachelor of Music with a focus in elementary school education. I studied voice privately with Anne Relyea while at UBC, and also enjoyed a deep choral experience with Bruce Pullan and Diane Loomer.
I enjoy learning new voice repertoire and improving my piano skills. I am composing/adapting a multi-media choral piece for elementary school age which is intended to give voice to children's environmental concerns through the text of "The Declaration of Interdependence," a poem published by the David Suzuki Foundation.
Healthy singing for a lifetime is cultivated with a commitment to building musicianship skills, understanding our breath and body, and having fun in a supportive environment!
"Singing wakes up our bodies. By activating the many systems involved in producing vocal sound, the act of singing itself engages muscles, moves energy, burns calories, increases oxygen to the brain and stimulates a variety of feel-good hormones, all of which leaves us feeling alive, alert, awake, expansive and present. Numerous studies have shown that singing reduces symptoms of anxiety,depression and high blood pressure, while increasing self-esteem, alertness and a general sense of well-being. Singing is powerful medicine.
