~ Xin Yu, Leisure Acoustic Guitar Student
|I found Peter while looking for a teacher to guide me for Trinity Rock and Pop exams. Under his guidance, not only was I able to grasp the syllabus, I was also given extra knowledge out of the book. Peter has great theory knowledge and a unique way of application, which allows me (someone with no music background) to understand easily. I'm now able to play some solo's with much more expression. Definitely value for time and money.

|Peter is very knowledgeable, especially in the area of music and guitar theory which are essential for your basic. His style of teaching is very systematic and gradual, providing an overview of what you’ll learn. He’s able to provide knowledge according to your current standard even if you are just a starter.

|Having lesson taught by Peter is very comfortable and enriching at the same time. He is well equipped with both the practical and theory of guitar. Most important of all, you can feel his passion and patience while teaching. The skills and techniques he taught are also very useful for beginners like me. I am glad to have him as my guitar teacher!
~ Boon Jun, Leisure Acoustic Guitar Student
|Han Yew is a very patient guy who would not rush through his lessons and does not mind repeating himself till you get the drift. He taught me drills that helped reinforce my learning experience. This also helped accelerate my learning curve. He also goes the extra mile of emailing us what are the things we should improve or work on after every lesson. He’s more like a friend than a teacher overall. (:
