Our founder realise many guitarist in Singapore are self taught and are seeking to have the right foundation and skills so that, they can play songs without having to refer to scores, do a solo without looking at tabs, play melodic line without having to copy some one else's music. Guitar Emerge aims to provide all guitar students with this solid foundation so that all can be an inspirational guitarist.
Music itself is an inspiration. It brings about different form of emotions to an audience. At Guitar Emerge, we aim to play music that brings joy, faith, comfort, hope and peace to our audience. Let's begin to amplify our inner music!
Through the years, we have heard many parents say their children lost interest in guitar because of the lesson style and syllabus taught to them. Here at Guitar Emerge, we aim to create a fun environment in our lessons so that these children stay excited and thus enjoying their guitar journey!
