Guitar belongs to the family of chordophone instrument, which produces sounds through strumming or plucking the strings. Believed to be originated in Spain, it is developed into two major categories, namely the acoustic and electric guitars.
As the neck of guitar is long and certain degree of finger strength is needed to press the strings, children who are too young may find it difficult to learn the guitar. For children who are below 6 years old, they may start with learning Ukulele, which is much smaller in size then the guitar, and much easier for kids to handle. They have a lovely appearance and conveniently portable. With Ukulele children can learn the concepts of chord formation, as well as scale of this family of instrument. Later they may change to learn the guitar or electric guitar according to their interest.
Our vision is to attend to the need and growth of children and establish musical foundation through practicing rhythm, sight-reading and aural exercises in addition to regular lessons. Teachers will adjust the lessons according to individual student, suiting their interest and let them learn in a joyful and fun environment, turning them into young maestro of music.
Other than merely focusing on the physical aspect of playing the instrument, our teachers offer fundamental knowledge on music such as music history, music genre and style from different period, and music theory for students to develop a broad sense in music. We provide 2 - 3 peer performance practices per year for each student as well to learn stage manner, develop confidence and self-recognition, and to overcome stage fright.
