Eight Tones Music School’s name was inspired by the eight elements of historical Chinese music “Silk, Metal, Hide, Stone, Wood, Bamboo, Clay, and Gourd” which makes up the modern day instruments that we know today: Dizi, Erhu, Guqin, Guzheng, Hu Lu Si, Liuqin, Pipa, Sheng, Xun, Zhongruan, symbolising our comprehensive approach to music education and services for our students. That being the foundation of what we do, the brand seeks to empower musicians to bring their passion to life, guiding them along their path of learning Chinese Instruments. We seek to enforce cultural significance in an increasingly globalised country like Singapore.
