We all know mastering chords changing requires tremendous efforts. The prolonged pain in your fingertips is also hard a beginner to bear.
Therefore, we should always do only the most effective exercises during our limited practice time.
With our Chord-fingering Mastery System (complete with a series of 2-min audio tracks), you will be guaranteed to play your favourite songs in the shortest time possible with our proven guitar lessons in Singapore.
Not sure of which rhythm patterns you should apply to a song? No worries, we’ve categorised tons of strumming or plucking patterns in a systematic progression for you. Each pattern consists of several variations where you can improvise them dynamically. We’ve also associated them with pop song examples, so that it is more relatable.
Soon, you’ll develop the sense of groove with this system & start playing intuitively and creatively without scores!
Don’t get too engrossed in following the exact music instructions. It’s time to have more freedom! We encourage that you exercise more creativity to express your own music style and expressions. Do you know most people prefer to listen to the same song being improvised in a different way?
That’s why in YouTube, you can find many cover songs performed in various unique styles.
The experience is so much more refreshing and exciting.
Everyone feel motivated to practise on songs we like, don’t we? We don’t believe you need to start with kiddy songs or traditional folk songs (if you are not into them), just because they are easy for a beginner. At Hark Music’s Guitar lessons, you start to learn how to play the mainstream pop songs or any songs that you like! We know it is important to make the learning process fun & enjoyable so that you are more motivated to spend your time with the guitar.

You do not need to purchase 1 before you commence your guitar lessons. However, eventually you definitely need to have a home guitar for practice between lessons. If you are a total beginner, it is important that you get a guitar you feel right in your hands. There are many varieties of guitar, e.g. steel-stringed, nylon-stringed, jumbo-sized body, dreadnought-sized body, etc.We know it is intimidating at a start, thus we would highly recommend you to walk into a guitar store to try them out rather than buying from the internet. Getting a guitar which feels right will encourage you in your practice journey!For female learners, starting with nylon-stringed guitar may be an option as it is less painful on the fingers. Until your finger strengths has increased, you may then slowly change to a steel-stringed guitar for brighter sounds.
As fast as 3 to 4 guitar lessons, you can play a pop song and sing along, from a total beginner! We will pace you up slowly to achieve songs with varying difficulties. Most importantly, we will ensure short-term and long-term goals are set in conjunction with the lesson plan.
You will learn guitar concepts such as chords formation, chords improvisation, plucking and strumming patterns, fill-ins, chords/melody playing etc. It will cover topics suitable for accompaniment playing (play-and-sing) and also instrumental playing styles.
Our Guitar classes are suitable for people who have learned classical guitar before. In fact, it is best suited for them as they have acquired the basic fingering skills. The main difference between classical guitar and pop guitar is that the former plays classical pieces, melody based, relying solely on 5-lines scores, while the latter focuses on conceptual learning, playing pop songs and promoting creativity and sing-along.
We cover pop songs, from mainstream like English Pop, Mandopop. In our syllabus, there is a balance of English and Mandopop for students to choose from. During the piano lessons, you can choose your favourite pop songs or current likes. Your coach will guide you on how to apply the concepts you have learned so far into application. This makes the guitar lessons really fun!
