Accelerated Guitar Mastery (Batch 2)
Graduation Concert
25th April 2010

I say it was more of a BREAKTHROUGH Concert than a Graduation Concert cause it’s just the beginning of their guitaring journey!

We had many total beginners in this batch. And believe it or not, they performed on stage in just 4 weeks from the start of Day 1….

All have achieved ‘un-imaginable’ breakthroughs.

From a total beginner, to be able to play their chosen songs on stage is definitely not an easy feat. And mind you, they were not easy songs to begin with!

When our instructors heard what they hope to play… Jaws Dropped!
Songs like “More than words, You raise me up, I’m Yours….

Hey, those are songs beginners should not even try to attempt… not to mention they have to perform them in such a short span!


It’s so heartening to see all of them achieving the impossible. Though some are not entirely perfect, it is un-doubtingly an amazing achievement not many are willing to commit.

To play guitar in just 1 month and learn all the strategies and knowledge to become a self-directed learner.

We acknowledged that they themselves put in much hard work and effort to be where they are now!

That’s the spirit of this programme!

Keep your passion going, friends!
We say, this is just the beginning of your fulfilling guitar journey.

*Claps, Claps*

Guitar Coaches – David and Shawn, giving another performance.

Reuben, one of the graduates. Sharing his thoughts about the 3-day Accelerated Programme.

Paul, one of our proudest students said “Thumbs up!”

Kiang Liang – Performing “Falling Slowly”.
Wow wow wow.

Reuben – giving a sincere and emotional delivery.We were touched.
He mentioned it was depicting his life journey.

Our trainers livened up the atmosphere after his performance ’cause it was a little too….

Entertaining moments for all!

Paul – He looked so confident with his ‘weapon’.

Giving all his might to sing an ‘utterly’ challenging song – I’m Yours (Jason Mraz)
(..and yes, he is a total beginner to start with! And to handle with all the barred chords… We salute you, Paul!)

Master Trainer, Jensen (Personal Empowerment)
All smiles, seeing all the graduates achieving personal breakthroughs.

Keljin – Performed 记得. David on vocals and Amos on piano.

Evelyn – performing ‘More than Words.’ She performed the full version.
I bet her fingers must have gained ‘total numbness’. Hahaa…
She is also a total beginner to start with.

“We were impressed!”

Elkan – performing “You Raise Me Up.”
He was an experienced player who only knows how to strum.
Without any plucking background, he played the song with chord/melody for the intro section. Was definitely a incredible feat for him.

Finale Performance by our Master Trainer, Amos Teo!
Loud cheers!!!

Time to GRADUATE!!!
