Why Music Academics
Music Academics is our response to traditional ‘F to A*’ tuition centres, with a musical twist.
A sister school to one of Singapore’s most popular Chinese music schools – Eight Tones Music School, Music Academics was founded to cater to the academic needs of our many students taking music as a subject in school.
Students who take Music in school are often unprepared for the unexpected challenge of the subject’s aspects that go beyond instrumental virtuosity and basic music theory.
Here at Music Academics, we help secondary and tertiary students get the As they deserve, under the leadership of programme director Jon Lin Chua, Eastman Graduate and Local Composer, along with her team consisting of music education veterans, award-winning composers and music degree holders.
Lessons are specially tailored to fit each individual student’s needs, as we believe that every student has his or her own unique way of comprehending music, and learning can be optimized by customizing a lesson plan that caters to one’s strengths.
Together, we can deepen your child’s scholarly understanding of music and unlock his or her fullest musical potential to go even further with music.
