Our Founding Story
by our director, Ms Taly Yap
At the tender age of four, I eagerly embraced the piano, marking the beginning of a lifelong musical journey. Most of my childhood piano lessons were heavily shadowed by stern instructors wielding correctional sticks, instilling a lasting fear. Yet, my parents remained steadfast, tirelessly nurturing my musical path.
As I grew older, I struggled to stay motivated in practising music and I greatly contemplated its value in my life. The turning point came in my Grade 5 when I encountered a remarkable studio owner and piano teacher who inspired and sparked a fervent desire in me to share the beauty of piano as a teacher.
Many years passed for me as a part-time music teacher while I navigated the demanding landscape of Singapore's corporate world, climbing the ranks as a 6 Sigma Certified Quality Personnel and Global SAP HR Consultant. I felt I was going through a dull motion until the birth of my joyful son, who rekindled my search for a quality music program, for him and for myself.
My eureka moment occurred at SmartKidsAsia with my first experience at the MYC program. Enrolling my son at the age of three, I witnessed firsthand its unparalleled comprehensiveness, fun, and, most importantly, his genuine love for it! This revelation affirmed my belief that music education should be both enriching and thoroughly enjoyable.
As a parent, I deeply recognize our pivotal role in motivating and encouraging our children on their musical journeys, demanding discipline and unwavering attitudes. This profound realization reignited my passion in teaching music and starting my very own Baby Angel Music Studio for young children.
Motivated by the hope that all students under my guidance will experience joy and reap profound benefits from quality music education, I am committed to crafting harmonies that resonate for a lifetime.
