TESTIMONIALS

  • I was looking around for a good ukulele teacher for my children, and connected with Stradivari Strings. Rita linked me up with teacher Deomar for ukulele lessons for my son. My son is young and it takes him a long time to focus. Deomar has done a brilliant job helping my son learn simple chords and engaging him during the ukulele classes. He also absolutely loves Deomar’s approach to teaching. Aside from that we also bought a really good violin from the shop. Thank you for everything Rita.

  • My mother started ukulele lessons with teacher Deomar. Ukulele teacher Deomar is very professional. He notes your strengths and tailors his ukulele classes to enhance them, thereby keeping you motivated and engaged. He is very patient and even if you have not practiced, he encourages you and goes through the lessons in a pace that suits you. If the lessons are not completed, he does not strictly keep to the time limit and extends the time where necessary. He also gives my mother music scores according to her music tastes, which makes the ukulele lesson much more engaging and motivating for her. It gives my mother great satisfaction when she is able to complete a piece that she likes. All in all, highly recommended for ukulele students who want to learn leisurely and at their own pace.

  • We loved working with Teacher Ade as Sahana’s guitar teacher for the summer. He has the right mix of fun and patience, and he kept the lessons well planned and engaging throughout for our six year old. Sahana had just begun guitar while she has been playing piano for 2 years. She was reluctant to practice guitar as she was better on the Piano. However, Ade recognized that she was interested in playing songs and tweaked his lessons. As a result Sahana has been more excited to practice her skills under Ade’s guidance than she was before. We look forward to engaging him again next summer. Thank you, Ade! PS: we accidentally attended one of Ade’s performances in clarke quay. Wow!! He was unbelievable!

  • 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.

  • Here is a guide on electric guitar lesson fee in Singapore:
    Beginner level electric guitar lessons $40 to $60 Duration 30 minutes to 45 minutes

      For a firm quotation as well as information on the profile of the electric guitar teacher, contact Stradivari Strings at +65-98137769.
  • In some ways it is easier to learn on the electric guitar as it may have lighter gauge strings as compared to the acoustic guitar which makes it easier to pick and finger the strings. The body and neck of the electric guitar is also smaller as compared to the acoustic guitar. Do note that as long as you have a strong interest in any musical instrument, you will find it easy to learn that musical instrument.
  • Sure of course you can. There is no fixed rule which states that you need to progress from acoustic guitar or classical guitar background in order to be good at electric guitar. If you like the genre of rock or metal, do proceed with electric guitar classes first.
  • You should plan around two years for electric guitar lessons. In this time frame, you would have mastered many chord formations as well as strumming patterns to play a big selection of rock and pop songs.
  • It is possible to self learn the electric guitar without a guitar teacher, if you have some foundation in the acoustic or classical guitar. However there will be up to a point where you plateau and cannot progress much further in your playing techniques. In this case, you can contact Stradivari Strings at +65-98137769 and we can put you in touch with one of our senior level teachers accordingly.
  • Yes you can play on the electric guitar without switching on the amplifier. The sound projection will be soft though, so you may feel that there is no wow factor when you learn to play the techniques during your electric guitar classes.
  • If you wish for your electric guitar coach to go to your place for lessons, you can prepare 2 sets of amplifier and electric guitar. One set for you and the other for your guitar teacher. If you wish for your teacher to bring his acoustic guitar over for lessons, that can be discussed. You may need to fund his transport accordingly if he needs to carry several guitars (electric guitar, acoustic guitar, ukulele) around to coach students throughout the whole day.
