"Well, one thing I will never forget about singing is to INTERNALIZE the song. You've got to have the "feel" of it...That's what Mr. Ben Noynay taught me. The dynamics are as important as internalization... like how you perform or project on stage by being relaxed not tensed & the inhale-exhale exercise. He would really know if I was doing the exercise or not. Every morning before I get out of bed, I have to inhale till the last breath & exhale it slowly to the hilt. Most of all, CONFIDENCE in myself... way back then, I never thought I could sing a very high note with the help of that "inhale-exhale" exercise & the confidence of what I can offer....singing :)"
Laura Bacus, Singing Student
"I was lucky to have had the privilege of being a student of coach Ben Noynay back in 1989 at the Salonga Music Studio Cebu. Though it was only for about half a year, I learned a lot, techniques and all, from him especially the important principles that provided strength, encouragement and affirmation to my musical inclinations. Those valuable lessons helped me a lot as I put my God-given gifts to good use, being part of a church choir and when I sing in some social gatherings. I also became a singer entertainer for about 10 years at a 5-star beach resort. My never-ending thanks and gratitude to coach Ben, then, for that wonderful time I enjoyed learning with him, may more benefits as he pass on his great talents through (and including) coaching."
