I teach my lessons from a teaching space located in Singapore, 542258. My full teaching address will be provided upon your first lesson booking.
Mr Loh is an excellent teacher who is especially dedicated, patient and passionate about teaching his students, and the results clearly show. I have been greatly inspired after being taught by him for some time, and he definitely makes learning the guitar look easy!
For the past 9 years, under the guidance of Mr Loh, I have learnt much from him. A dedicated and experienced teacher, he has been of great help and supported me in my journey of learning guitar. Being able to work towards my diploma under him is something that I am especially grateful for, and I completely trust him to bring me to higher standards through his mentorship.
Mr Loh is probably the most passionate and dedicated classical teacher you will ever meet! Over the past 8 years, he has been very patient and encouraging throughout my musical development journey. I always get inspired to better refine my musical pieces and hone my skills whenever I see him play the classical guitar. He never fails to display, capture and bring out the finest essence in every musical piece sincerely. On a more personal front, Mr Loh exudes a fatherly figure – he genuinely cares for his students’ wellbeing. He is also very considerate and motivating whenever I seem downcast or exhausted from school work. I am genuinely very thankful towards him and his wife, Mrs Loh, for their care, concern, and professional guidance over the past 8 years!
