Hi guys, my name is Ben and i'm 25 from London. I moved over here a month ago and i'm teaching at One World. Would love to meet up and swap stories on how everyone is getting on, not too many stories about school though, that's way too boring haha. my email is ben_girling@hotmail.com , lets get a date sorted! x

Hi all,
European here, moved to Singapore quite recently. I teach in one of Singapore's universities, and I also happen to be a dedicated musician, although that's not my job. Unfortunately I had to take a short break because of the international move, but I hope to be back on track soon.

Would be curious to meet other people that play: I don't know the Singapore music scene at all, but I'd like to find out. I' mostly a rock/indie/jazz person and that doesn't seem to be exactly what you find around here.

If you're going out for a drink or two, let me know and I'd be glad to join in if I can.

Oh, almost forgot: I'm a guy and I'm 29.

Hi Teachers..

Hey there, I see that the teachers are getting together. without them students! nice. I like to join you guys, if you have a space for an indian, 36/m . been living here for a long time, know quite a fair bit about the living nuances here, oh yes, about cars in here, that should be a fairly interesting and a cultural shock for some newly arrived, bloody expensive driving in spore roads...so yea, love to join the group...

jaraadshamen@gmail.com or 83332558.


happy teaching!

Good afternoon,

saw many music teachers and lovers in here replying, why not gather for a concert watching session or music get together playing?

Have a nice day ahead.

i love nearly all kinds of music except for country and pop.
I love Canada

Hey everyone.

I'm a 32m from the US teaching at a primary school for the last few months. I'd love to meet fellow teachers. Did an event ever materialize? Did you all get together and end up hating each other? :evil: haha

Nothing yet. I just started my new school year, (Students start on Monday) so it'll be a little hectic for a couple weeks, but after that if anyone's game we should meet up.
