    Any mummies send your 6yrs old kid to Yamaha? Is it good? Does your child pick up fast? Pls advise. Thanks.

    My neighbour also attended Yamaha. She has switched to another school in the Marine Parade area, after half a year. Go figure why....[​IMG]

    Because its such a big school the standard of teachers vary. Her child is smart but learns very slowly and the lesson progress very slowly.

    But to be fair have to assess your child's class teacher. Dont think every class is bad.

    It is important to get the right teacher for our young ones. Some teachers are good at violin but not good at teaching. Some are not good with kids. So if anyone who knows teachers who are good with kids, pls post.

    I have a 4 year old daughter who started learning violin (suzuki method) last September at Mac music school at Forum 12th level.
    She is fortunate to be taught by the principal who is very good with kids. She is already playing her No. 14 song in the first Suzuki book. She will be proceeding to individual class after the end of this term.
    If you wish to know more, do let me know.

    Where is this Mac/Forum12th? I took my 7yr-old daughter to Tanglewood@RobertsonWalk for a class but don't think they are good with children.

    good teachers usually go private - some yamaha group lesson(jmc/jxc) teachers are really good and they are usually full. From what i have heard and seen, music schools tend to have young teachers who are starting out to gain experience - there will definitely be good ones in them but one may need to think how long he/she is going to stay with the school before going the solo route....

    Hi Caitlin,

    I recall you mentioned that you only travel to student's house at the east? Do you travel to other area other than East?

    Hi Wan Wan,
    The areas that i normally travel to is within the East area, eg Kallang, Katong, Bedok. However I do travel to Bendemeer, Potong Pasir, Kovan etc. It depends on the timing and schedule. As for the west area etc, I can most likely try to ask the other violin teacher friend.

    Hi Caitlin,
    Could I check if you know any violin shop that is reliable and sell good violin? I intend to get my son a new violin and hopefully a better one and yet reasonable price. Could you help to recommend some shops that you know? Thanks!

    hi ehelpers,

    You 3.5 year old girl can start violin lessons. Typically we will start her off with the smallest size violin (1/16 size). Our music school has violin teachers who are good with children. You can contact me at info@stradivaristrings.com or http://violinlessonsingapore.com

    Pls do not engage Joanne Chiew as a private music tcher. She is unscrupulous and capitalise on parent's music ignorance and registers children in unaccredited and unrecognised music exam brd in Msia. She is currently a musc tcher in Sonare music sch in sengkang. It's a scam. Beware.
