Music Lessons in Singapore (2021)
Playing an instrument has its perks: it’s an interesting skill to have, it fine-tunes your motor skills and engages your muscle memory to play out melodies. And, let’s be honest, it makes you look attractive too. Many Singaporeans engage in music lessons for various reasons, be it for enrichment for the young ones or as a hobby to unwind after the daily hustle and we’re pretty sure that some are here after seeing your favourite musician perform with one on stage. But we know that picking up a new skill is never easy, and while there are many options on our sunny island that can teach you these skills, how do you choose the right lesson for you?

|Address||770 Bedok Reservoir View, #15-181, Singapore 470770|
|Operating Hours||Saturday to Thursday 10am to 9pm|
Guitarworks was established in 2010 from a humble beginning. Today, Alan – the owner and founder – has taught more than 350 students. It is Alan’s goal to bring music to you with a personal touch in a home-based environment. Over the years, Guitarworks have constantly improved their lesson syllabus in order to accommodate more people with different learning needs, all in order to help you achieve your guitar goals.
- Honesty. Alan believes in encouraging you towards your music goals and will work with you towards achieving that.
- Patience. Alan believes in being patient towards people who are trying their best and creating a safe environment for people to fail and make mistakes.
- Sincerity. Alan believes in mistakes as it’s part of growth and puts heavy emphasis in correction, not condemnation. Having the right attitude and a willing heart are more important than talents.
I took Beginner one-to-one lessons with Alan from Jan-Apr 2017. Initially I had my reservations about having to travel 1.5hours from school (in the west) to Bedok, and then another 1.5hours back home (in the north) every week. However I was still won over by the numerous positive reviews written by previous students, which are indeed highly accurate depictions of Alan’s teaching effectiveness and patient character!
Coming from a non-musical background, I started off my guitar journey without much confidence, and depended greatly on reassurances that I was progressing fine. There were times when I was slow to learn and I let off small steams of frustration, yet Alan was very patient in guiding me again step-by-step, troubleshooting my mistakes, encouraging me to press on and gently reminding me that there was no need to make guitar-learning a stressful/rushed thing!
Being able to record videos to review back home was certainly helpful, and I appreciate that Alan would annotate and highlight on my course notes since I mentioned that I learned better that way. I was also impressed by his intentionality to ask about my general well-being/follow-up on certain issues causing me anxiety. This is truly a testament to his caring nature and ability to reach out and build a comfortable connection with students, which also aids in making the guitar-learning process more enjoyable and conducive.
All in all, I am very pleased that I have gained a new skill and found an awesome teacher in Alan! The lesson atmosphere is light, the lessons are suited to your individual pace/schedule and you can choose the songs that you would like to learn (what more can you ask for?! :p) Would definitely recommend others to learn under Alan! :DDDVanessa Lee

I am a 58 year old man. I have learnt the violin for 8 or 9 years. I want to go to the 8th grade this year and hope to do it. Finding a teacher to learn the violin is an important matter for me. Not only is a teacher good in technique, patience, punctuality, but most importantly, to have good character, be gentle, speak the facts, and find a way to overcome the weaknesses of their students. Last October, I found a teacher at Music Delight School. After a few lessons, I realised that he was the teacher I was looking for. I am learning with more confidence and joy now. Thank you so much. I want to thank them for their time and dedicated teaching. Of course, one’s own efforts is also important.

As Sheng Li started from zero as well, he is able to share exactly the musical concepts, mindsets and tips to help you accelerate your learning, so you can start enjoying making music as fast as possible. Under his tutelage, Sheng Li will not take you through a curriculum but ensures that he will make you fall in love with the guitar and help you reach your music goals.
- As a regular performing musician, Sheng Li doesn’t just teach guitar, but he’ll help you go from zero to playing on a stage.
- Sheng Li cares about helping you achieve your goals and not just to take you through a curriculum.
- For weddings/events, Sheng Li would closely with you to make sure your special day goes exactly as you planned – if not even better. Pick the songs that you like, and he’s open to spontaneous arrangements – it will be a day to remember!
I had gone through two group guitar courses but both weren’t able to sustain my interest. After taking lessons with Sheng Li, I found him to be immensely talented in his guitar skills but at the same time, he would be able to craft and deliver his lessons according to my pace and interests. Throw him your favorite song, he will figure out the chords and teach you in the very same day or next session.Chan Xiu Chang
