About The Guitar
The Guitar is a significantly popular instrument that many people, both young and old, pick up either as a profession or a mere hobby. Regardless of the purpose of playing the guitar, it is known that this instrument is a common choice among many people all over the world, including Singapore. The guitar is known to be a primary instrument across many music genres such as country, rock, pop, folk, reggae, and many more, which further explains the popularity of the instrument worldwide.
Given the variety of guitar types including the classical guitar and the ukulele, the instrument is suitable for anyone, even for beginners who want to pick up any musical instrument. As the basic technique of the guitar is fairly easy to learn, guitar players are sure to master the art of playing the instrument after spending adequate time and effort practicing!
For guitar players looking to progressively hone and challenge their guitar playing skills, they would tend to take the ABRSM/Trinity Grading Examination, which requires them to achieve mastery of both practical playing techniques and a holistic understanding of the Music and Guitar Theory. Through these syllabus, students will be exposed to a wide range of Guitar genres, notably the classical genre.
In terms of official assessments, Guitar students have to go through 8 grade examinations, from Grade 1 to Grade 8. For each grade examination, students are required to go through the Guitar Exam under the ABRSM/Trinity. Under the ABRSM syllabus, the examination consists of three pieces, namely scales and arpeggios, sight-reading, and aural tests, with total marks in all exams being 150. Students are required to achieve 100 marks to achieve ‘Pass’, 120 marks to obtain ‘Merit’ and 130 marks to achieve ‘Distinction’. Students will only be allowed to move on to the higher Grades should they pass the previous Grade examination. Under the Trinity syllabus, the total possible marks attained is 100, and students have to achieve 60 marks to pass, 75 marks to attain a ‘Merit’ and 87 and above for a ‘Distinction’. However, for students who wish to achieve greater versatility and adopt a more recreational curriculum, they can choose to forgo the taking of examinations and solely focus on the genres they are interested in, such as the contemporary/pop Guitar genres.
At MindFlex, we provide the Top Guitar Lessons in Singapore to guide students on their music journey with the Guitar instrument. We take pride in our reputable and passionate Guitar music teachers that will devote their time to guide their students in playing the instrument.

What Are The 6 Most Important Criteria to Look For in A Guitar Teacher?
1. Qualifications and Abilities To Teach The Guitar
At MindFlex, we have a range of Guitar teachers, with varying levels of experience and different focuses in interests. Rest assured that at MindFlex, all our Guitar teachers are experienced and capable of teaching the instrument. In addition, our friendly coordinators will also be helping all clients in their selection process, ensuring that all clients find their perfect Guitar teacher.
2. Strong Music Background and Experience In Teaching Students
It is important to check if the Guitar teacher you are interested in engaging has experience in teaching students of similar levels and age groups. For example, if you are seeking a Guitar teacher to teach a Grade 7 student, it makes no sense to engage a Guitar teacher who only has experience in teaching students of lower grades, as they would not have sufficient knowledge and experience in the examination requirements of the higher grades. Similarly, when looking for a Guitar teacher for your young child, it might be better to engage a teacher who has had experience in handling young children as the expectations and teaching method need to be altered for different age groups.
3. Familiarity With the Instrument
While it is important for the Guitar teacher to be able to teach the instrument’s fundamentals and theories, it is also important that the teacher is well-versed and skilled to play the instrument. As different guitar types work differently with specialised techniques, it would be beneficial to find a Guitar teacher that specialises in the specific guitar type that students want to learn. This way, students will be able to learn more effectively during their lessons with their Guitar teacher!
4. Ability to Teach Both Practical And Theory Aspect of Guitar
In many cases, students who learn the guitar also opt to learn the theory component. Hence, it will be beneficial if the Guitar teacher you are engaging has experience in teaching both the practical and theory components – allowing students to maximise their lesson time.
5. Passion and Dedication in Teaching Guitar Lessons
Passion and dedication are essential criterias in a Guitar teacher as it will allow teachers to put in more effort in planning lesson schedules and guiding the student. In addition, it will be useful to come to an agreement on the lesson schedule and whether the teacher is able to commit to a long-term lesson arrangement if needed. Here at MindFlex, we make it a point to facilitate communication between our clients and teachers to ensure that all parties are able to come to an agreed conclusion of the expectations and lesson schedules.
6. Testimonials and Recommendations From Previous Students
Top Guitar Teachers in Singapore will naturally have a strong testimonials base which is built on by their previous students. Referring to the teacher’s testimonials is one good indication of the teacher’s teaching abilities and music performance, which can assure you that they are qualified to teach and that students are in good hands.
