F.A.Q.

What music courses are available?

We conduct courses for Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Bass Guitar, Ukulele, Drums, Pop Keyboard and Piano.

Why should I choose Vinnie Classroom?

As you look to us as a music school option for your child or even yourself, we hope you will see that Vinnie Classroom’s approach and philosophy meshes with your own aims and objectives.

  • To provide students with a quality music education.
  • Teachers are experienced and highly qualified.
  • Regular performances for students to build confidence and gain a sense of comfort on stage.

What syllabus does Vinnie Classroom use?

We conduct lessons based on syllabuses from Rockschool, ANZCA and London College of Music (LCM) examination boards. Students will progress from beginner to advanced levels via a structured framework and be assessed by external examiners at each stage. Upon passing, students will be awarded an internationally-recognised certificate. We also have the VC syllabus (see below).

Is it compulsory to take exams?

No, if you just want to learn an instrument without the stress of preparing for an international graded exam, you will be happy to know that the in-house VC syllabus is tailored for learners at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.

Since we do not just teach to a test, even if you choose the exam curriculum, your music repertoire will be much wider than the exam syllabus. This will help you grow as a musician.

How much do lessons cost?

Keyboard/Piano fees from $160 per month ($480 per term).

Guitar/Ukulele/Drums fees from $208 per month ($624 per term).

There are 11 lessons per 3-month term.

Are lessons one-on-one or in a group?

Lessons are mostly conducted one-on-one i.e. teacher with a student.

If you wish to form a group with friends (maximum 3 to a group), there will be a 20% discount per student. For a group of 4 to 6 persons, there will be a 40% discount per student.

How much is a trial lesson and how do I sign up for it?

The 45-minute music trial lesson costs $39.90, whatever the instrument. The cost of your trial will be free if you sign up for regular lessons! You can email us at hello@vinnieclassroom.com or Whatsapp 9298 0830 with your contact details and the course you are interested in. We will be in touch shortly.

Testimonials

Stella LawGuitar Student

““Vinnie Classroom has a special place in my heart. The teachers and staff are so warm and friendly; it's not just a music school but feels like a second home! After spending half a year at Vinnie Classroom, I also realise that Teacher Vinnie's methods and style are undeniably different from other teachers that have taught me. I know because I’m growing and progressing at a steady pace. Teacher Vinnie always makes lessons more enriching by sharing interesting facts. This perks my interest in music tremendously. This shows that he does not just teach about techniques, but also practical and general knowledge needed for the long run."”

Parents of Roshan and KashviPiano students

““Both our children attend Vinnie Classroom. The teachers there are passionate about making music a part of our kids' lives. And do so in a very encouraging manner. They've created a wonderful environment in which to learn music. So, not only have they done well at their grading exams, but more importantly, they thoroughly enjoy their lessons. They also look forward to the annual performance concert and learning to play music outside the scope of exams. This exposure to performing solo, in groups and alongside their teachers before a "LIVE" audience is a great confidence-booster. Thank you, Vinnie Classroom!” 😊”

Florian GallonElectric Guitar Student

““Vinnie Classroom - one of the best music schools in Singapore! A great team of teachers adapting their lessons to your goals. The yearly recital is a great outcome for all students to work on a common project and learn how to perform during a live show!””

Nur AzimahElectric Guitar Student

““Vinnie Classroom makes me feel at home. I used to work at a company that was also situated in a shophouse, so the environment here feels familiar and homely. The teachers are great and awesome. Plus, although the yearly recital always makes me feel jittery and anxious, it also excites me no end. The feeling of practising the songs you love and finally being able to perform them on stage is like a dream come true!””

Laura Lim, Parent of LucasLucas, Drum Student

““Lucas was a restless 5-year old, so to kill boredom, we brought him to drum trial class at Vinnie Classroom. He was interested and we’re glad we signed him up! Much better than leaving him at home, playing toys and watching cartoons. We’re pleased that Joash is a dedicated teacher and has been very patient with Lucas. We saw progress after a few lessons, and Lucas always looks forward to his drum lessons.””

Nicole NgElectric Guitar Student

““I like the location (there’s a lot of food)! The lessons are informative and answer many questions I have, especially since I have no music background! It also motivates me to practise more too!””
