|"I truly enjoy learning at the Hark Music School.
The teachers are equipped with the skills and techniques
to impart their knowledge to the class according to each
individual's learning speed and needs. Also, everyone
is given the same opportunities to be on stage and showcase
their talent! The many concerts and showcases in school
allows us as students to have a platform to experience
what its like to be on stage performing, before taking
bigger challenges to perform in public. And not forgetting,
the friendly administrative staffs that are always so
cheerful and helpful, affirming that I made the right
choice in developing my music interest in Hark Music."
Leow Kian Peng - Pop Piano & Vocal Student
|"I enjoy singing and playing guitar since young
and hope that I can perform on stage one day. Until I
found Hark Music, my dream comes true and I am able to
sing and play guitar solely on stage.
I am an individual student taking up guitar and vocal
class. The instructors are professional and willing to
impart their valuable knowledge and experience to me.
I have also attended the "Accelerated Guitar Mastery"
3-days course. It gives me a rare opportunity to know
more new friends who have the same passion for music;
it gives me a chance to build up my self confidence to
overcome my shyness and social phobia on stage."
Fook Weng Albert - Vocal, Acoustic Guitar, Guitar
|"Playing music is my passion since young. My
dream is to be on stage playing and sharing beautiful
music to the audiences. Time flies, I have been together
with Hark Music for more than half a year now. The instructors
are very patient and professional. I also make new friends
who shared a common interest. My first impression of Hark
Music is that the environment gives me a cozy feeling
and the facilities were well equipped too. Hark Music
is the place where people get their chance to perform
on stage. It helps people to overcome stage fright and
fulfill our dreams."
Lim Choon Bee - Pop Piano Student

to Hark Music, the only school that I will never drag
my feet to! Having to learn with Hark versatile instructors
and interact with music-lover students, not only did I
learnt the craft of singing, playing, composing and performing,
Hark allows me to explore the wonders in music in a comfortable
and friendly environment. The confident and strong individual
personality is the best reward I have gained along my
learning journey. Hark Music is definitely an inspiring

Kiang Liang - Vocal and Guitar ExpressWay Student
|"I started my music journey in Hark music since
2008 and I am enjoying every moment of it, till today!
I feel that the school provides a very structured syllabus
which helps us in building our music foundation. What
most important, is the commitment and guidance my instructor,
Maggie provides to every individual. Her passion, patience
and teachings to us are beyond words of description! Her
famous teachings- "Open mind, Open Heart" With
passion, nothing is impossible!
In addition, there are many activities, competitions &
auditions organized by Hark and through all these "outside
of classroom" exposure in stage performances, it
allows me to discover my capabilities and I continue to
improve on myself in this music journey.
Music is truly awesome! :) "
Lee - Vocal Student
|"I first became a Hark Music student in the
Accelerated Guitar Mastery Programme, now known as Guitar
ExpressWay. My bigger interest though is in songwriting.
Soon, I got my chance to be in Hark Music Songwriting
Apprentice course. Here I learn the structure and skills
of writing a good song from professional songwriters.
I also made a lot of songwriting friends and wrote a lot
of songs with them. The biggest joy of being a student
at Hark Music is that you feel like part of the family.
Here, you do not feel intimidated at all in your learning
journey in music. You enjoy and pick up music no matter
which level you are at. 作词人给了一首歌故事， 作曲人给了一首歌生命。"

|"To be honest, when I first joined Hark Music
due to the effective persuasion of 2 close friends, I
haven't heard of Hark Music before. After taking lessons
there for the last 1.5 years, I wondered why.. The professionalism,
dedication and passion shown by the school and its instructors
are probably unrivalled anywhere. I enjoyed every single
step of my vocal learning journey and am continuing with
individual classes even after my course ended. Courses
are well-structured and instructors are patient, dedicated
and sincere. This place is perfect for anyone who wants
to grow musically or even just to improve their singing
and thus enjoy leisure karaoke sessions more!"

be of so much fun and effective. Lessons are simplified

Kek - Acoustic Guitar Student
|"Hark Music has really helped me widen my knowledge
and nature my love for music. It crushed the idea of me
being unable or even incapable or playing the guitar instead
it inspired me to achieve and strive for what I used to

made my learning journey a pleasant and joyful one! Thank
you Hark Music."
Lee Ting Kok- Acoustic Guitar Student
|"I have been learning guitar in Hark Music
for almost 1 yr, and have been very satisfied with my
Even though I have been playing
the guitar for the past 10 yrs, but my skills have been
pretty "stagnant". I have always wanted to
increase my level of skills in playing a song so that
it will not sound so boring by repeating the same plucking/strumming
styles throughout the song.
With the aid of the wonderfully crafted syllabus
for the Hark Guitar course, i have learnt more plucking/
strumming styles and techniques. The instructors here
are also very knowledgeable, skillful and friendly.
We can also opt to choose our own songs and go through
them in class too.
In general, I have been very happy with my improvements
over the 1 year course in HARK. I am able to play a
song more "freely" with the various styles
and techniques. As the saying goes "学海无涯“, I hope
to learn more from the various instructors and bring
my level of skills to the next higher level."
Lee Jun Quan - Acoustic Guitar Student
|"Friendly staff, nice teachers, conducive environment
and full of fun and laughter……..That is what Hark Music
is all about! The ‘Hark’ way of learning music has really
impressed me. Its well-planned syllabus and unique teaching
concept are brought to life by my Hark teachers. I never
knew that playing the keyboard and composing songs can
be so easy and of so much fun!
Jane, my keyboard teacher, is very encouraging and bubbly.
She always encourages my class to explore widely, not
just learning songs within the syllabus, but also explore
songs that are outside the syllabus so as to further improve
our keyboard skills. When I faced difficulties, she would
patiently guide and never fail to come out with great
ideas to solve the problems I am facing. Amos is friendly
and approachable, despite being the music director. He
never hesitates to render his help, and often gives me
great advice on how to improve my song-writing skills.
Hark Music is also equipped with facilities like practice
rooms, a recording studio and a performing studio to cater
to the needs of the students. I simply love sitting on
the cozy sofa in the performing studio, watching the performances
and attending short courses organized by Hark Music.
Hark Music has made my music learning journey so fruitful.
I enjoy my classes and got to know friends with the same
interest. I am happy to be part of the ‘Hark’ family.
Thank you Hark Music!!!"

but also passionate towards teaching, Hark Music is
a place that allows me to explore and discover a part
of me which was missing in the past (almost) 3 decades
of my life. Rhythm inconsistency, tone insensitivity,
and poor finger coordination are just some of the many
issues I faced in my Pop Piano class. Often, I felt
like calling it quits. But every time I met with my
instructor, Raymond, he will always sit down patiently
beside me to guide me, and he never failed to bring
me back on track. The same goes for my Vocal class.
My instructor, Shaun, was always able to come up with
exercises to help me correct my mistakes, and give each
of us additional drilling on the areas where we are
Apart from attending classes with like-minded classmates,
Hark Music also organize (free) events like the recent
Pop Piano Gathering, and the A-Mei themed concert, where
we get to enjoy good music in the company of fellow
students and the other instructors in Hark Music. On
one hand, these activities give aspiring students an
invaluable opportunity to present themselves, while
on the other hand, the audience get inspired by these
students’ courage and passion (and not forgetting,
getting awed by the instructors’ performance).
All in all, I’m glad to have started my music
journey with Hark Music."

|"Hark Music has really rekindle my passion
in playing the keyboard/piano. They teach music in a systematic
yet enjoyable way, making lessons fun and interesting.
The friendly staff at Hark makes the place cozy and comfortable,
a great place to learn! More importantly, Hark cater to
the needs of the working adults who are only available
after office hours or weekends. I particularly enjoy their
student performances, giving students the opportunity
to perform on stage what they had learned. I'm really
appreciative of the efforts put in by Hark to create a
place conducive for students to learn music, and providing
an avenue for students to experience performing on stage
in a cozy environment. Thank you and keep it up!"

moment you step in, you instantly feel like you're family!
The instructors and administrators are genuinely amiable
and down-to-earth, yet always exuding keen professionalism.
I joined Hark not quite knowing what to expect, but since
embarking on my learning journey with them, I've received
consistent remarks from friends that my singing has improved
by considerable bounds. My instructors have been extremely
knowledgeable and passionate about their craft, display
good pedagogy, and are always patient no matter how many

Ho Beng - Vocal Student
|"I've only been attending vocal lessons at
Hark Music for 3-4 months and I have seen tremendous improvements
in my singing! Of course, that's because I have a knowledgeable
and masterful instructor who is also patient and friendly
in his teaching and training. On top of that, Hark Music
provides a great environment for practice - rooms well-equipped
with the necessary tools for steady improvement in the
trainee's skills; spatial corridors and even a library
of songs to browse when waiting for lessons. With the
additional point of having a group of generally helpful
and friendly administrative staff, this is why Hark Music
stands as my preferred music school."

Hark has been a really fun and enjoyable experience –
whether in group or individual classes. You guys have
a well-structured and systematic syllabus, excellent facilities
for lessons, practice, and student performances, and most
important of all – the people factor.
most heartfelt compliments to everyone – from
Lydia and Feon at the front desk, who warmly greet everyone,
and will diligently remind me about stuff, to my teachers
Shi Ming (vocal) and Shawn Tan (guitar) for being great
and flexible teachers who go the extra mile to help
us with our personal interests, and to Amos and David
and the other planners who work so hard to organize
interesting events, programmes and lessons for the Hark
Performing Team and students. And to my classmates and
friends I’ve met at Hark – I’ve learned
a lot and enjoyed myself with all of you too! You guys
are awesome! Thanks!"

|"A friend of mine introduced Hark Music to
me when I showed the interest of learning guitar few years
back, despite I was probably a bit too old to start picking
up this instrument since my fingers are so conditioned
to typing keyboard and tapping iPhone, they are just not
that flexible anymore, LOL! Anyway, I finally joined the
acoustic guitar class after getting a suitable timeslot
and I specifically like the fact that you can start playing
songs within the first few lessons! Can start to claim
I'm a guitarist ya!
People here are nice
and friendly, they take the effort of remembering student's
name, which is a much commendable. Instructors are very
patient and generous in sharing their knowledge with
students. Songs that we learn in class are popular pop
songs and there got to be one is your favorite too!
In a nutshell, Hark Music provides an extremely
cozy environment for any music learner, be it beginner
or experienced players/singers. Let's get started!"

can truly describe my experience at Hark Music. In my
2 years of Vocal and Guitar lessons with Hark Music, I
have been fortunate to be under the tutelage of passionate
instructors who not only teach us how to learn effectively,

I am able to apply to my work and many aspects of life.

helped to broaden my music knowledge. I have taken almost
every course available (Vocal, Keyboard and Guitar) and

course, one can definitely self-teach to further understand
music. Afterall, learning is a life-long process! "

" Hark Music, a peaceful and conducive learning environment

is what has been ingrained in me in the guitar and vocal
singing classes I??ve attended in these 2 years of my
music journey with Hark Music. From a guy who thought
that he was a music retard, to a person now who can stand
up on stage and play live music to an audience. That is
what Hark Music has transformed me into??.
The ultimate aim of me learning
music is to be able to stand up on a stage and strum
and sing to a crowd. Hark Music is the school that has
a performing theatre for me to fulfill this dream. Ever
since I was drafted into the performing team, I have
always looked forward in performing at the mini concerts
held at the performing studio. The school is planning
bigger events for us, this enthusiastic and talented
performing group of students, so I am looking forward
to using music to touch the audiences?? hearts"
Ong, Vocal & Acoustic Guitar Student
" I've been with Hark Music for about 2 years.
Their friendly and approachable staff plus the warm and
conducive environment makes music-learning a whole new
experience for me. I look forward to classes every week.
People from all walks of life, with the same passion and
dreams of music gather here. Definitely, I??ve made many
friends during my stay. The patience, motivation, encouragement
and guidance from the instructors make it an enriching
and enjoyable musical journey throughout. They are always
there to guide us along. What's more wonderful is the
availability of the performing studio for us to experience
the stage feel as part of the learning process and the
opportunity to perform with audiences. Thank you Hark
Music for all these extra benefits which enhance the passion
in us to strive harder in music."
Vocal & Pop Piano Student
" My journey with Hark Music began in July 2007
when I took up their guitar course starting from the fundamentals.
Subsequently, after an audition for the Hark Performing
Team, I got through and had a chance to work with my fellow
team mate. Of course, everything wasn't all smooth-sailing
from the start, but because of the support of instructors,
classmates, and my team mate, everything went on track
gradually. Cheers to their helpful and supportive spirit!
Their facilities are complete with practice rooms, a recording
studio, and on top of that, a performing studio. These
are readily available, despite "peak-period"
times, where the rooms could be fully booked which is
understandable. The instruments, specifically the keyboards
and guitars, are adequate for our practice and lessons.
The instructors are well qualified, and all are most willing
to give advice anytime despite not being officially taught
by them. One good thing is that the school is not fully
commercialized such that it does not tend to sacrifice
passion for profit. Events like the Open Stage and the
Student's Showcase give students a chance to get exposure
on stage. This opportunity is rare and hardly found in
In summary, I feel that Hark Music is not only a place
to pick up music skills, but a warm place where you can
make friends and meet people who are passionate about
music too. "
Su Teck, Acoustic Guitar Student
" I have enjoyed singing since young and soon realised
that singing is more than just having a nice voice. That
was when I decided to join Hark Music to learn proper
singing techniques. Though I am taking group lessons,
the instructors here recognise that every student is unique
and they always take time to address each individual's
problems. They are always willing to help us to improve.
Being a student performer in the Hark Music Performing
Team, I also get to apply what I have learnt in the classroom
to real life stage performances. I constantly learn new
things after every lesson and performance, which has allowed
me to benefit tremendously since I joined Hark Music.
Siew Yong, Vocal Student
" Not only is Hark Music a fun place for me to

program definitely gives all Hark Music students a real
Tay, Vocal & Pop Piano Student
" Hark Music has been exciting and enriching as a
music school. With frequent performance opportunities
and a high level of professionalism, it is indeed the
right way to go for both music newbies and masters. Its
staff are well-trained and talented and equally dedicated
to all aspects of the school. Its fees are also reasonable
and this gives it an advantage as opposed to other music
schools who charge exorbitant fees. It has great facilities
and this eases newcomers into performing and recording.
It never fails to provide a cosy atmosphere and friendly
employees are always available. Overall, my course at
Hark Music has been an incredible experience and is just
what I was looking for in a music school."

" I've just joined Hark Music for nearly two
months now and enjoy every moment I spend in class with
my instructor and classmates. Everyone in the school including
administrators is so friendly."
Wen, Vocal Student
" I have been a part of Hark Music for the past
four years. I must say that it has changed a lot in these
four years. I remembered the first time I went to Hark
Music they only occupied the second floor. There wasn't
even a first floor! And performances are held on the second
floor, so everytime students came for lesson when there
are performances, they feel very paiseh for interrupting
But that was in the past.
Hark Music has grown a lot since then...expanded to two
storeys...introduced a cafe...then took away the caf??
and *tadah* transformed it to the performing studio you
see now. Well, Hark Music has come a long way since it
first started. They have a blog now, more opportunities
for students to display and cultivate their musical talents,
more rooms for more classes etc. Hark Music is a good
learning ground especially for beginners with no musical
background. I hope it will continue to expand and reach
out to all music lovers."
Yong Kang, Vocal, Pop Piano, Song Composing Student
" Learning music at Hark Music has been a fun
and fruitful experience. It is really memorable as through
learning, I get to make new friends who share a common
interest. We sing, we laugh, we play and we have lots
of fun during lessons and even after. The memories I have
of our class learning, performing and celebrating certain
festivals like Christmas will always be remembered. I
feel really blessed to have such wonderful classmates
and good instructors. I??m glad they have friendly and
knowledgeable instructors who make learning enjoyable."
Ying Ting, Vocal, Pop Piano, Acoustic Guitar Student
" I've found that Hark Music's approach in teaching
guitar playing very suitable for people like myself who
wants to learn to play pop guitar rather than playing
the classical way. Furthermore, the instructors are very
friendly and an inspiration for beginners who have passion
for music and guitar playing."
Ho, Guitar Student
|" I was an individual
with no prior vocal experience but a heart to back it
up. I looked through various brochures of music centres
for vocal lessons or training. When I chanced upon Hark
Music's pamphlet, one sentence caught my eye. ??You need
not possess a good voice to sing well. But you need exposure
and guidance to discover your true capabilities.?? It
was through this that commenced my vocal journey in Hark
Music. On my introductory lesson I was introduced to my
instructor, Alex Tan, who was very understanding and helpful
in pursuing my musical goal. As I progressed and improved
vocally during the lessons through Alex??s guidance, we
became good friends and he helped me with musical problems
outside the classroom through some of his experience.
All in all, I felt I was more motivated to pursue my passion
further and make an impression to my fellow peers through
Hark Music. "
- Vocal Student
" It is a great place for people who want to
learn singing as the school places a lot of emphasis on
the foundations of singing, getting the student well prepared
for higher levels of singing which most people do not
have. The most important thing is the instructors are
always open to advising students in their singing. On
top of that the school always provides a showcase for
students who wish to test their singing ability at the
end of each stage during their course. Such opportunities
are rare or not provided unless you are willing to pay
a hefty sum. Last but not least all the staff at Hark
Music are very friendly and adorable, making the whole
experience there more complete and fun.
the school provides opportunities for students who wish
to pursue a career in the singing industry by having
talent search competitions. During the competitions,
contestants are further groomed by the instructors how
to be a better singer and also what showmanship is required.
Even if you do not get in at the end of the auditions,
the instructors will provide you feedback on how to
improve so that your chances of getting chosen will
increase in future competitions."
