Should you wish to register for lessons conducted at the Methodist School of Music or Sinfonia Music School, please do note that their school fees, calendar and terms and conditions will apply.
Please do note that the lesson durations stated are for practical lessons only (not including theory lessons proper). The lesson duration simply does not allow for a detailed theory lesson. Should you require theory lessons in order to take theory exams, please understand that I do teach up to grade 5 ABRSM theory but this requires additional time aside from the practical lessons.
I do not conduct trial lessons but a short meeting may be arranged to discuss details when required and/or requested.
Sinfonia Music School and the Methodist School of Music do offer paid trial lessons. But do note that should you attend a trial lesson at the schools, you will have to continue at the respective school. You will not be able to take up slots with me at another school or at home. (e.g if you were to attend a trial lesson at Sinfonia, and thereafter are unable to find a suitable slot with me at Sinfonia, you will not be able to take up an available slot at the Methodist School of Music or at my place. You are however able to request for a transfer to another teacher within the school).
For lessons at my place, make-up lessons are permissible on a case-by-case basis.
Cancellations made less than a week prior to the lesson will not be made up. Regular time slots will not be held if lessons are missed more than twice in a row. You may request for a new time slot based on availability.
Please do not presume all lessons missed will be made up indiscriminately. All scheduled lessons which I am unable to conduct will be made up and I play by more-than-fair rules but draw the line at being hoodwinked.
Do u teach from your home or are u able to go to students’ hse? Pls kindly advice on this…
Thanks for your message. Yes I teach from home or at Sinfonia Music Studio in Bishan or The Methodist School of Music at Upper bukit timah. I do not travel to student’s homes.
I would like to have a violin class at weekday after 5 pm. DO you have any time slot ? How much do they charge in Sinfonia Music Studio?
