Guitar lessons - too much time on my hands

Post by twototango » Thu, 01 Mar 2007 12:43 am

Wow, I have some extra time to kill! Can anyone recommend someone who teaches guitar? Or maybe a decent music school? Also, do you know what the typical cost for lessons might be? I am in the Bukit Timah area.

I'm also interested in this. I already bought a guitar sometime back and have started lessons online. Would love to do the formal lessons to learn.. Anyone have any recommendations?

I should have also asked, "Where can I purchase a guitar?" :wink:

:cool: :? Ive just started learning and am having half hour private lessons at yamaha in plaza singapura. once a week for 6 months cost $189 every two months cheaper if you have 1hour class lessons. there are probably cheaper around but this place is established and professional

I think about 60 bucks for 4 lessons. The instructor used to spend about 10-15mins with you/ per lesson and practise for another 45mins.

Hi

There are some music schools at Balmoral Plaza on Bukit Timah Road.

There are a few to chose from on the 2nd level of the building which may be worth looking not sure of the prices though
