Vinnie Classroom was established in January 2014 as a provider of music education in Singapore. Although the name is new to the scene, Vinnie Classroom represents a team of vibrant and dynamic music teachers, all with at least 5 years' teaching experience under their belt in conducting lessons one-to-one, small group and classroom environments. Each of our teachers are fully-certified, active practitioners of various music disciplines, and some are performers in their own right. And with regard to keeping current to be relevant to students of all ages, it's serious business to us. And that is why we make it a point to gather every 2 months to share our teaching experiences, materials and skills.
Students of our music school can expect instrumental and theory lessons tailored to stimulate their musicality, pique their curiousity and harness their ability, all while staying on track to meet their musical goals, be it formal music examinations or to be a rock star. Our students will not just learn how to play an instrument, but also learn to play music and appreciate music.
We also provide thoughtfully-crafted music programmes for primary schools, run by our experienced AMIS Teachers using our very own practice methods. These include guitar, ukulele, keyboard and music IT programmes and are designed to introduce uninitiated students to the wonderful world of music through engaging lessons relevant to current trends and well-loved classics. We aim to nurture students' understanding and appreciation of music, at the same time providing them opportunites to showcase their talents and realize their potential.
