Teow Yi Ling

My name is Teow Yi Ling and I was born and raised in Kelantan since 1990. My interest in music was motivated and encouraged by my family. I started to learn piano since I was 7-year-old and I actively involved in school dance, choir and taekwondo performances and competitions since primary school. In 2006, I have completed my Grade 8 Piano under The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music.

After my SPM, I pursued my Diploma in Music (Performing) in Malaysian Institute of Art. In college, my major instrument was piano under Ms. Chee Su Yen and my minor instrument was classical vocal under Mdm. Ang Mei Foong. I was a member of the Malaysian Institute of Art’s Ladies Chorus. Our choir has participated in many performances and competitions such as The Lord of The Rings Symphony in Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (2008). In 2009 they won a Gold medal in ‘A Voyage of Song’ International Choir Competition held in Penang. In 2010, the choir took part in the 8th Malaysian Choral Eisteddfod and was awarded champion in the Choirs of Equal Voices category. Their proudest moment however was at the 6th World Choir Games in Shaoxing, China, 2010 where they won the gold medal and World Championship for Malaysia in the Female Chamber Choirs Category. The choir was invited to perform at the International Kodaly Symposium in Brisbane, Australia, July 2011 at Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Griffith University.

After graduated from MIA, I received a Merit for my Grade 8 Singing under Trinity College London in 2011 and I started to work in Young Choral Academy as Tutor for Elementary Level of Kuala Lumpur Children Choir. I’ve obtained Primary Level 1 in The Australian Kodály Certificate in Music Education (Dec 2009) and going to take Primary 2 this year end.

In 2013, I was having my internship in Young Choral Academy as Assistant Stage Manager for concerts organized by YCA. And I am currently a full time Production Assistant under Young Choral Academy. Besides that, I am grateful to work as Stage Coordinator in conjunction with the 69th birthday of His Royal Highness the Sultan of Selangor, DYMM Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah Al Haj “Konsert Amal DiRaja – Forget Me Not” organized by Alzheimer’s Disease Foundation Malaysia (ADFM) at Plenary Hall, KLCC in 2014.
