Over Viola (. L. C.
Music is a blessing and I love to be the channel to share it to the world! I am someone who had been enjoying singing out of my heart from the age of two. After years of dreaming to be a professional singer, and finally convinced my parents that singing is what I need to learn to fulfill my life, I have finally found my dream come true!
About my lessons:
I believe everyone should have the privilege to learn and discover their own unique ability, with the most expressive and intimate instrument on earth, the human voice.
Therefore, my lessons revolve around the most profound and healthy singing technique of bel canto, and open the door for all students to their own choice of music genres, in the guidance of profession singing advices on maximizing each singer’s unique gifts.

Dealing with stage-fright and performance stress
Viola Cheung has performed more than twenty premieres in the Netherlands as she emerged as a versatile singer from Hong Kong. Having a wide vocal range and distinctive colours, she made her voice heard in music productions from bel canto, contemporary to pop singing and interdisciplinary experiments. Her successful debuts include a leading role in Seconds of Fear by Kaori Neus in the Opera Forward Festival of Dutch National Opera and Stimmung II with Silbersee in Muziekgebouw, Amsterdam.
Graduated from the Master of Classical Singing at Codarts Conservatory under the guidance of Charlotte Riedijk, Cheung continued with her second master degree in New Audience and Innovative Practice at the Royal Conservatoire. She has sung in masterclasses by Luciana Serra, Lynne Dawson, Roberta Alexander, Frans Huijts, Henk Neven, Marcel Reijans, Tobias Berndt and Lidia Vinyes Curtis.
With immense passion in creating innovative forms of art, Cheung has published her first master's research on extended vocal techniques in modern operas under the coaching of Nicole Jordan. Cheung was chosen in music documentary, Young Music Maker 2015, by Radio Television Hong Kong and was awarded the scholarship of Best Student in Concentrated Studies by Hong Kong Baptist University in 2013.
Currently coached by Maartje Rammeloo and Anka Koziel, Cheung is taking on De Toverfluit (The Magic Flute) country tour in collaborations with Toneelmakerij and Silbersee, production centre for unorthodox music theatre and experiment opera. Bringing her own culture and imaginations into classical music with artists of various backgrounds, is one of her favorite playgrounds. After the remarkable premiere in the Internationaal Theatre Amsterdam, Cheung is now touring with the team in sixteen other cities of the Netherlands and Belgium. She will also be singing the role of Liu in Puccini’s Turandot, with Velser Operagezelschap Bel Canto in Oct 2021.
