“Learning to cook doesn’t mean you want a career as a chef. Similarly, learning a music instrument or singing doesn’t have to mean you must make it a profession. Any skill learnt can be applied in many ways in life that you don’t and can’t see now.”

Why Groove Music School

Beyond sharing the love for music, Groove Music School believes that music offers many benefits including but not limited to physical, emotional and mental health. And here we strive to place your best interest at heart.

This means that whether it is to obtain a certificate by having lessons/classes that will prepare you for graded examinations; to achieve your own music goals; for personal growth and self-development; or for cathartic experiences, we have something for everyone.

And really, no one is ever too old to pick up a skill, more so when it comes to music. Our oldest student is 70 years old and our youngest is 5. They say age is just a number, and we believe so.

A teacher, an inspirer, a mentor and a friend, we happily take on the roles of all four.
