Quality Piano Lessons

Our program immerses young children and adults in the exciting world of classical music with an overall appreciation for music and theory. We provide one-on-one customized piano lessons in Singapore and are passionate in delivering quality music classes to suit each student's levels and learning abilities.

"Learning the piano is both an art and a science.

The science is in the formula of how the whole piece of music runs on equal number of counts per bar regardless of what notes and rhythm is used. The sound the piano produces rests entire on the physics of wavelengths. Fibonacci theories are embedded throughout. The art is in the composing and improvising of pieces and the demonstration of one's emotions through the music that is played. The different touches (finger, wrist, forearm and arm) expresses these. The orchestra of both science and art elements produces the performance of a life time, in solo, duet or full symphonic representation of all instruments."

Thank you for teaching me piano. When I didn't do my homework, you were always patient with me. When I didn't know how to play a piece, you taught me how to play it properly. Even though I known you for a few months you were really kind to me."
