With plenty of experience under belt, she will be able to tailor lessons specially just for you, based on your learning abilities and help you to be more equipped to tackle the various components in the non-practical aspect of the Music Elective Programme Examination (MEP).

Music at an academic level can be demanding, taxing and challenging. With high standards to meet, it is not easy to satisfy the demands of the Singapore Music Elective Programme (MEP). A complex activity demanding detailed knowledge, our teachers will be able to help with theory, music writing and music research. Music papers we provide are current and up to date, in accordance with the MEP syllabus provided by MOE. This extends to IB Music as well. IB students need not worry as our IB music lessons will be conducted by our skilful teachers.
