Music lessons for you & your family.

The History

— How it all began

Takano Music Studio opened its doors in September 2017 in the heart of Robertson Quay with a few students and has grown into a thriving music community offering group lessons for infants, as well as private piano/singing/guitar lessons for children and adults!
In 2022 we moved into new premises further along River Valley Road, with 2 purposely-renovated studios. We are very grateful to our students and parents who have shared their enthusiasm for music. We welcome you to come and see it for yourselves.

Our Mission

— What's Next

Takano Music Studio views music and performance as the birthright of all people, an essential way that human beings connect with others and explore their creativity. The study of music has been demonstrated to enhance academic learning and helps to develop discipline and confidence that will serve children well throughout their lives. 

We aim to make it possible, regardless of their background and resources, to be able to experience the joy of music and the artistic and intellectual benefits of musical performance. Our classes build on your natural enthusiasm for music and movement and provide a foundation for future instruction in dance & musical studies.

Best of all, they are fun!!

Music Together™️

0-3 years

A community of families sharing songs, playing instruments, chanting rhythms, full of movement in a relaxed, playful, non-performance-oriented setting. 

Group Piano

Groups of 3-4 children aimed as an entry level class prior to moving on to private piano lessons. Our Group Piano classes teach the basic fundamentals of reading & writing score.

Learning to play the instruments are a skill which will stay with your child for the rest of their life. From beginner to advanced ability, our private classes cover rhythm, tonality, singing, listening, reading musical score and pitch.

My son, Ryuto has been learning for 2 years and 7 months from the age of 7. To start with, he couldn’t play with both hands, nor could he read the notes.

His first accomplishment was being able to master a piece of music from Burgmüller in about two months! By six months, he was finally able to fulfil his goal of playing “Dolly’s Dreaming & Awakening” – all thanks to his teacher, Shizuka.

He has since learned a lot of difficult songs, learnt the depth of music and even entered competitions!

My son has grown in confidence not only due to skill of playing piano, but for the fun of music, and the joy & sense of accomplishment when playing difficult songs. He has also learned the importance of practising, and the importance of taking on challenges.

Thank you very much.
