Dr. WeiShu Tsai - Baritone
My name is WeiShu Tsai. It is my pleasure and honor to be teaching voice at Keller High School. I am also teaching voice at Hillwood Middle School and other music academies around DFW, as well as at TCC. Previously, I served as a Teaching Fellow at the University of North Texas for three years teaching undergraduate voice lessons, along with voice classes for music majors and non-music majors. I also taught at Guyer High School and Harpool Middle school in Denton ISD.
I perform as a soloist in operas and concerts as well as serving as a choral scholar and assistant director at Flower Mound United Methodist Church. Before my studies at UNT, I was a member of the Taipei Philharmonic Symphony Chorus and Chamber choir for 5 years. I found my passion in singing and acting during those choir rehearsals and performances. I would love to share my passion and knowledge about the human voice and help students to be successful and build healthy singing habits.
I now live in Lewisville, Texas with my wife, soprano MengJung Meg Tsai, and our six-year-old son, Channing.
