Guitar Lessons

Stradivari Strings offers the following guitar classes in Singapore: acoustic guitar lessons, classical guitar classes for beginners, electric guitar classes and bass guitar classes for beginners.

Beginner Guitar Lessons

Our beginner guitar lessons are structured so that you are taught the correct playing techniques, while giving you the choice to select the playing style which you wish to master. The initial focus will be to learn the proper posture for guitar playing and basic tuning skills. Next, basic chords are introduced and playing techniques including different styles of strumming and plucking patterns are taught. These are taught in both kids guitar lessons and adult guitar lessons.

The Best Guitar Lessons for Kids in Singapore

Are you looking for amazing beginner guitar lessons for your young budding musician? Enrol your child in our guitar lessons for children. Children age between six to twelve are developing cognitively so exposing them to beginner guitar lessons will stimulate them mentally. This is an avenue for them to express themselves creatively.

After firming up scheduling for kids guitar lessons, the next task you need to do is to shop for an appropriate size guitar for beginners. You can wait till the beginner guitar lessons start, and get an idea from the guitar teacher. Alternatively you can go to any guitar store to have your child properly measured, before guitar lessons for children start.

We can structure kids guitar lessons on a leisure route, or the ABRSM or Trinity Guildhall examination route.

Guitar Lessons for Adults

Majority of adults who start adult guitar lessons have no music background. Under our guitar teachers’ guidance, all have enjoyed many hours of lessons. Some adult learners have progressed beyond beginner guitar lessons, to improvise on popular songs and compose new songs!

Guitar lessons for kids and guitar lessons for adults can be conducted at our music studio at Sultan Plaza, at your home or at your teacher’s place.

  • Calvin is a dedicated and passionate guitar teacher who encourages his students to go beyond simply just memorising and practicing. He seeks to ensure that I understand the theories behind chords, its progressions, and guitar scales; so that I will be able to better appreciate them and the practices thereafter would become easier. He also encourages me not to just stop there but to use what I have learnt to create my own songs. Calvin is extremely patient and always accommodates my requests of revising theories that he may have already gone through. He also curates his lessons for his students to suit their interests and skills. For example, in a lesson about chord progressions and song keys he got me to pick a song of my choice and we transcribed it together on the spot. Not only did I have a lot fun doing so, but I also learned something in the process. Calvin has definitely helped improved my playing and has boosted my confidence as a guitarist.
