Piano Lessons For Kids In Singapore
Our piano classes for kids in Singapore cater to both beginners as well as advanced players. We offer various piano classes for the young here at The Music Works (TMW):
- Absolute Piano Starter – Classical Piano Class (Group)
- Individual Piano Lesson – ABRSM Syllabus
- Contemporary Piano Class
- Music and Movement – Kinder Beat
Absolute Piano Starter – Classical Piano Class (Group)
Specially designed for children aged 4 years and above following the sought-after, established ABRSM syllabus, this introductory course relies heavily on one aim: to substantially improve your child’s knowledge of music to prepare them well for future examinations.
Our group classes of up to 6 individuals will enable each child to polish their piano learning skills while building social skills at the same time – whether it be with a keyboard, acoustic upright piano, or digital piano.
Individual Piano Lesson – ABRSM Syllabus
For students requiring individualized attention or simply preferring solo lessons, we provide one-on-one courses following the well-established ABRSM syllabus. Students who tend to focus well alone will be sure to benefit from this class.
The ABRSM exam syllabus that comes with this series follows the Practical Grade Piano exams, where students will be assessed based on pieces, aural tests, scales and arpeggios, as well as sight-reading. In the pieces syllabus, a variety of traditions and styles will be introduced to students for them to find their desired music that they would enjoy learning and performing. On the other hand, the scales and arpeggios is vital for building solid technical skills and developing expertise such as pitch and interval awareness to ultimately lead to greater confidence when performing. Sight-reading ensures students gain skills to make learning new pieces easier – whether it be learning a new piece or making music with others. Lastly, the aural awareness syllabus will include activities integrated into imaginative ways to promote a ‘musical ear’.
Contemporary Piano Class
Our contemporary piano class follows the curriculum of Encore Piano Series and Primary Piano Series. Applying the curriculum from Encore Music Education, we have the relevant experience and expertise in teaching in preschools for students below 7 years old!
Encore Piano Series
Fun is the name of the game, and our Encore Junior Series is a perfect depiction of the well-known saying. The series nurtures well-rounded musicians through music literacy, improvisation, performance pieces, and aural training.

Key elements include backing tracks with exceptional arrangements, songs that build musical expression, finger zips that develop skills on a micro level, flashcards to reinforce theory concepts and enhance reading skills, repertoire pieces, ensembles to develop group playing and interaction, keyboard harmony refine chord playing skills, solfa/solfege singing to build an aural library of melodic patterns, and by-ear playing which connects keyboard playing with aural perception.
Towards the end of the series, students will be able to play basic chord progressions, transpose at the piano, play in different keys – and more!
Primary Piano Series
The Primary Piano Series is a more advanced course that aims to nurture older children looking to master the piano and take it to a whole new level. We implement unique multi-sensory teaching strategies in this series to accommodate the various learning styles of students.
This series comes equipped with a curriculum that focuses on a ‘Five-Finger’ approach that allows students to learn the piano as a melodic and harmonic instrument. This system ensures that students establish a versatility that enables the hands to swap parts with ease. With an aim to build a solid harmonic and rhythmic foundation throughout the series, students will be able to make swift progress while being exposed to a broad range of styles from Jazz to Pop, and Baroque to Rock.
Key elements in the Primary Piano Series include backing tracks providing authentic aural models, finger zips to flourish keyboard skills on a micro level, rhythm taps to refine rhythm playing and reading, finger taps to develop and reinforce dexterity and key patterns, repertoire pieces, ensembles to establish part-playing skills, keyboard harmony to improve transposing and improvising, solfa/solfege singing that promotes an aural library of melodic patterns, by-ear playing which connects keyboard playing with aural perception, and flashcards to enhance and reinforce reading skills and theory concepts.

Extension activities, a feature of each lesson, will stretch the boundaries of music learning while promoting individual creativity.
