COURSE OVERVIEW

Raffles Talent Academy music courses provide an enhanced arts learning experience to build true passion from within our students. Supported by our own COMPASS ecosystem, the academy is working closely with our teachers to create a multidimensional environment for music learning that encourages student to venture beyond technical abilities and explore artistic depths.

We are developing our students to become confident individuals with an acute awareness of the evolving trend in the global music industry. Through our online integrated learning system, students will be able to supplement their onsite lessons with online support to create more platforms for artistic involvement. They will also been encouraged to take initiative and guided on how to give constructive feedback through master class and performance opportunities.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

My teaching philosophy is that all students are unique and should be provided with a stimulating educational environment where they will receive endless support and encouragement to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially.

Music is a universal language and it is my desire to create the path to help students discover its innate beauty. I believe my role as a music teacher does not suffice by teaching from the books but also to discover the full potential of every student and using my expertise to further nurture their glistening ideas.
