Kawai Music School offers:

Classical Courses for piano, violin, guitar, voice and flute - Kawai Music School’s classical courses are designed to allow adults and children as young as 5 to study music as pursuit of leisure or with a view of developing music as a professional career – as a teacher or performer. 

Leisure Courses for piano and guitar - Leisure courses are beneficial for adults and teenagers who are seeking to develop basic skills to play popular repertoires. Those with classical training can also join Kawai Music School’s leisure courses as an alternative avenue to explore other music genres.

These courses aim to develop, cultivate and sharpen the sense of beat and rhythm inherent in every child. In a world where children are taught to sit down and be quiet, here at Kawai Music School, we encourage children to stand up and be heard!

Kawai Music School’s music syllabi are based on the internationally-recognised Trinity College London examinations and its certificates are approved by the Singapore Ministry of Education.
