The SST Guitar Ensemble was set up in March 2010 with the aim of introducing classical guitar music to the students. Since its inauguration, it has grown in numbers and there are currently 44 students in the ensemble.
They participated in the Singapore Youth Festival 2011 and clinched a Silver Award for their musicality and impeccable performance. They have also performed at numerous school events such as the Chinese New Year Concert, Celebrations @ SST and Racial Harmony Day.
We would like to thank the conductor, Mr Chua Teck Seng, and the teachers in-charge for their dedication, guidance and support and more importantly, for introducing them into the world of guitar music.
The guitar programme is specially designed to equip students with the basic techniques of guitar playing and sight-reading. Upon successful completion of the programme, students will be able to:
- Understand different finger positions and fingering
- Play accompaniments with 14 fundamental chords
- Play simple melodies with proper fingering
- Perform ensemble pieces
- Perform simple solo pieces
- Do simple sight singing
If you have a passion for music and an interest in guitar playing, come and join the team!
