Top Piano Lessons in Singapore

top piano lessons in singapore

For many in Singapore, YAMAHA music school was the definitive music school for piano and Electone lessons growing up.

As Singapore developed and more music enthusiasts earned ABRSM Grade 8 and ABRSM Certificate of Teaching and the Licentiate of Royal Schools of Music, more sought to make a career from music teaching.

Hence, more independent schools and teaching-practitioners emerged, presenting more options for students of music as well as those seeking a slower, more leisurely place of learning.

 Since the rigor of formal music schools may not appeal to all students, like those seeking to take music as a hobby rather than seeking professional qualifications, more contemporary music schools emerged.

About Piano Lessons in Singapore

Piano Lessons are a thriving industry in Singapore as many who have musical talent seek to take piano education seriously, they may take greater interest in music education than academic learning. They might also find themselves more musically inclined with greater talent in music than mathematics for instance and thus seek a formal piano qualification.

Now there are many who not only earn the Grade 8 ABRSM but take the LRSM for qualifications as Music teachers. As Singapore developed, many took interest in classical music training as a serious vocation.

Schools offering cello, violin and woodwinds thus emerged sometimes in combination with piano options. Some piano lessons providers are parts of fully-fledged music schools which teach many classical musical instruments.

These may organize concerts with their inhouse orchestra or piano recitals for performance exposure. This enhances the piano learning experience.

I am extremely grateful to Teacher Jo for all that she has done for my daughter . She has been under Teacher Jo’s wings for about 2 years now and she has always been excited for lessons.

Review

“I came across this school as I was searching for a school in this area. Although it is a relatively new school, I liked the fact that its cosy and the service staff was very helpful and friendly in addressing my questions. I wanted my kids to learn and appreciate music and have fun learning it, and I think the teachers have been able to do just that. They are firm yet friendly and encourage the kids to freely express themselves and the kids always look forward to their lessons. Location wise, it is also very convenient as there are buses to the doorstep.”

We have been happily with Miss Daisy(piano) in Aureus Academy for the past 4 years, after we had tried 2 other music schools. Through comparisons, we prefer the professional teaching, effective and high-tech management, prompt communication, friendly attitude and especially flexible make-up arrangement at Aureus. I was very impressed when Aureus started to provide online lessons quickly after HBL was announced under this very unusual circumstance. After trying twice, we are quite sure we are very satisfied with the online lessons quality, although we all understand in-person lessons are the ideal. Miss Daisy makes all the effort to make the online lesson to be as effective as possible. And, I appreciate the weekly progress report sent by Miss Daisy after every online lesson which I always share with my daughter to help her review the lesson.

For the first time we started going to Juzmusic with my eldest daughter 7 years ago and when the choice arose where to go with my youngest daughter, I no doubt choose this school.

My kids love school and teachers very much. Overall a very good school which I recommend.

Trends in Piano Lessons in Singapore

Yamaha is the household name for music lessons in Singapore. Yamaha conducts convenient, group lessons, reducing monthly fees.

Big players in piano education include Cristofori, another established school, Juzmusic, which caters to all levels of piano learning islandwide, MYC, with a more traditional curriculum and lessons in composition, ensemble creation, sight-reading, Hark music which emphasizes less traditional, more expressive modes of learning, STACCATO which believes in making classical music fun and engaging rather than boring, traditional.

Cadenza music school is for students serious about ABRSM training and qualifications.

The Happy Pianist matches students to private teachers and students can browse through teacher profiles to choose the best fit for location, piano abilities, and preferences for pace, distinguishing between more traditional and more expressive routes.

Sample costs of Piano Lessons

Beginner lessons at music schools typically cost $40-50/hr for 45 mins, Grade 1 costs $50-$60/hr for 45 mins, Grade 2 costs $55-$60/hr for 45 mins,Grade 3 costs $60 to $70/hr for 45 mins, Grade 4 costs $70-$75/hr for 1 hour, Grade 5 costs $75-$90/hr for 1 hour, Grade 6 costs $90-$100/hr for 1 hour,Grade 7 costs $100-$120/hr for 1 hour, Grade 8 costs $120-130/hr for 1 hour. Diploma training costs $130 ++ per hour.

Benefits of Piano Lessons in Singapore

Piano training is taken fairly seriously by Singaporean families as an alternative to academic education. Individuals who are more musically inclined and perform less well in traditional Science, mathematics or humanities subjects but play keyboards well can pursue a serious music education.

They may make a fairly good living providing piano lessons, depending on how gifted they are as piano pedagogues and their reputation as teachers.

digital marketing for different business niches

The business of piano lessons can be as fiercely competitive as the ranking of schools in Singapore, quantitatively measured by the number of recitals attended, the number of awards won at competition and so on.

This potentially makes piano learning as academic as mainstream school subjects like science and mathematics, suppressing the joy of learning piano for its own edification or enrichment, replacing these with the relentless drive, hunger to win a piano competition.

Perhaps the best teachers do not push students to clinch medals and awards, but impart a genuine love and passion for music and enhance the musicianship of students.

The idea then is to transcend quantifiable results such as the number of piano competitions won and how young students were when they earned the ABRSM  diploma but to move beyond this.

Music, like Art has thus become a commodity in capitalist society, to be purchased and consumed. Like any other commodity, it requires mass appeal in order to survive and hence artistic standards are compromised in favor of saleability.

Piano lessons might become marginalized because these are not popular culture and do not have mass appeal.

This then speaks to us all about the purpose of art as well. If the purpose of art is to edify, if the purpose of art is to enrich, edify, then it must transcend the forces of grades and competitions as such edifying purposes are not quantifiable.

 Indeed art is an enterprise that transcends monetary value.  Piano lessons come from an age in which art was created purely for its own sake. It cared not for branding and packaging as well as examination grades, winning piano competitions.

A true piano pedagogue’s success is not measured by these yard sticks but assessed in how much joy and passion they inspire for the subject, how much they inspire students to engage in musical passions outside the class, whet their hunger for music appreciation.

They should inspire students to independently feel curiosity and passion about music, infecting them with their own palpable passion instead of  forcing students to win piano competitions and win that piano trophy but kill the joy of music learning in the process.

A true piano pedagogue inspires love for music, curiosity about the craft, and interest and passion for the subject instead of the relentless push to clinch piano competition medals and trophies.

When one looks at piano learning this way, upon piano appreciation as a passion rather than an academic subject, one can then appreciate the rich landscape of piano education in Singapore.

It transcends grades and competitions and views music as a craft, passion rather than as a dry, academic subject to be mastered.

One then looks for teachers who inspire joy, passion, music appreciation instead of regarding music as just another academic subject to score well and win competitions, medals in.

Great performers or brilliant students of music theory are not necessarily the greatest teachers, soft skills like communication, empathy, demonstration, emotional intelligence are required.

Many who excel in piano teaching have years of experience working with students rather than dazzling qualifications or music theory results.

The more advanced teachers go beyond teaching reading notation to imparting style, intuition, mastery, musical sense, through passion and knowledge of secret methods, masteries.
