BMus (Hons) Music Performance Level 6, 2015
The wide range of modules from musicianship classes to management lessons provided me with deeper insights in interpreting music and identifying musical techniques as well as a better understanding of how music is being written or arranged. I also benefitted from my management classes where I acquired knowledge of how the pop and classical music industry functions. The exposure to different styles of music ranging from classical to pop and jazz taught during piano accompaniment classes, and opportunities to work in ensembles provided a practical and innovative experience for me to grow to be a better musician.
Having been the emcee and performer for two graduation showcases, I had lots of fun and joy working and interacting with my caring teachers and friendly peers during rehearsals leading up to the actual event. With the good support and guidance of my teachers, I also had opportunities to organise my own recitals which were nerve-wrecking yet fun and do piano accompaniment for the pop and western ensembles. Such valuable experience had helped to develop me into a more versatile pianist and accompanist.
I will definitely recommend SRMC to potential students with deep-seeded passion in music and who are willing to strive and persevere under various circumstances and seek to be exposed to different music genres in order to emerge as true musicians.

BMus (Hons) Music Performance Level 6, 2014
My three years in SRMC taught me a lot. Besides learning how to play the piano beautifully, I was taught how to perform in public confidently and musically. After applying my experience to my teaching methods, I received a lot of compliments about my teaching methods and how I handle my students.Even the students who used to hate playing piano now love it. I feel happy
and proud that my students have achieved a ‘Distinction’ for their Associated Board of Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams.
Every event and public performance at SRMC left great memories in my mind. I recall spending 6 hours a day practising the piano, and catching up with friends to have a little break after classes. The long hours were worth it, and I am able to further my career as a piano teacher because of that.
I would definitely recommend SRMC to others because there are great piano teachers in the school, and I am sure they will continue inspiring other students. I hope to be able to inspire my own students too.
