I started singing Jazz while doing my PhD to ease some of the weight of studying. It’s my meditation and it works. My husband suggested that I should take a jazz singing class and I found a Master Class program with Bob Sedergreen, one of Melbourne finest Jazz pianist and musician. I never had any formal singing lesson so far, let alone, a formal jazz singing lesson. But the introduction to jazz by Bob Sedergreen in his Master’s class was so influential that after that class (runs for 5 weeks) I decided to start singing and learning more about jazz. (Photo below is my first jazz performance at Paris Cat with Bob Sedergreen).
From there, I never stop singing jazz. And so in 2008 is when I started a jazz band Tinta Rouge and we have been performing for private events, gigs, weddings, corporate functions in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney (Australia) and Penang (Malaysia).
