Musical instrument programme

Early Bird Programme (Group lesson)

This programme is designed to expose young children to different musical instruments before making any commitment. Children will learn the basic elements of music, tone and characters of different musical instruments, and how to play basic tunes. Musical instrumentswill be introduced based on the level of difficulty.

There are 4 terms:

1. Vocal – the natural instrument that you are born with.
2. Piano – making tunes and rhythm by your sense of touch.
3. Strings – discover the beauty of violin and cello.
4. Flute/Strings – continue with strings or try out the flute.

Musical Instrument Programme (Group of Two)

Through our years of teaching experience, we realized that many young students learn with greater zest and motivation when they are paired with a learning buddy. With a manageable size of two, our teacher is able to take care of both students, and this is managed at a cost effective and lighthearted way.

Students can either register with their friend or assign to a learning partner when they enrolled with us. We will do an individual assessment test to pair students together.

Masterclass Series

It can be a life changer when students get up-close and personal with world-class musicians; to play for them, and watch them play the exact same piece together. Other than the priceless advice and experience, students will be inspired and motivated to do better. Audiences of Master class Series will benefit from watching the inspiring performances.

At PMCA,we work very hard to bring top-notch soloist, university professors, professional orchestra musicians (eg.SSO and MPO), as well as established teachers to our Masterclass Series.

Why should we learn chamber music?

  1.  Chamber music is an excellent platform to train ensemble playing and sight-reading skills. Many outstanding orchestra musicians benefited from extensive chamber music training at an early age.
  2.  Many composers, including Beethoven, reserve the best music to chamber music works. They are generally ‘intimate’, as compared to larger works such as symphonies. Symphonies are like public statements of a composer, while chamber music is like a love letter or daises of a composer.
  3. Students will find liberty in a chamber music group; they share equal chance to play solo and supporting lines.
