STACCATO! is a music school in Singapore that specializes in teaching classical music to children and adults in fun, creative and unconventional ways. We believe classical music can be enjoyed by all ages and we focus not only on developing music competence in our students but also in creating an enjoyable holistic learning experience by cultivating an appreciation and love for classical music.
* Group Early Childhood Music and Movement Classes for Parent & Child (1 to 4 years old)

* Group Keyboard Lessons for Adults & Children (4 years and above)
* Individual Piano Lessons for Adults & Children
To provide a holistic learning experience that cultivates not only music competence but love, enjoyment and appreciation of classical music.
At STACCATO!, we believe in learning with passion. We are concerned that many music learners are overly caught up and pressurized to achieve a desired level of music competence and they lose the joy and passion for music. We provide an environment that encourages creativity through improvisation, performance and expression through movement. Our methodology is effective, and at the same time, unconventional in that we design our programs to excite, stimulate and cultivate.
In addition, we recognize the role of parents/caregivers in nurturing the passion of children through participation and appropriate guidance. We design our early childhood programs keeping in mind the need to also educate and equip our parents/caregivers with the ability to guide their children's musical interest and development.
At STACCATO!, we seek to develop not only the necessary musical skills, but also to cultivate a passion for classical music in our students. Our creative and teaching approach makes it fun and interesting for students to acquire an understanding and appreciation of the history, lives and music compositions of various composers in different music eras. In addition, we encourage the expression of creativity through music and movement, performance, improvisation and composition.
STACCATO! also believes that parent-child interaction is one of the most critical elements in the development of a healthy and happy child especially during the first few years of the child's life. The STACCATO! Early Childhood Music Curriculum is specifically designed to engage young children and provide parents with tools to help expose their little ones to the world of classical music in playful and interactive ways, inspiring a child's natural curiosity.
STACCATO! is the brainchild of Dr. Lee Pei Ming, who has a Doctorate Degree in Piano Pedagogy and Performance from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Dr. Lee seeks to share her love for classical music beyond imparting music competence to her students. Her desire is to create an approach for teaching piano and classical music that enables her students of all ages to cultivate an appreciation and enjoyment of classical music in a developmentally appropriate environment.
Dr. Lee's education and teaching experiences in the US has led her to develop a highly unique approach for early childhood music programs where classical music is used in conjunction with the music education philosophies of renowned music educators such as Carl Orff, Dalcroze, Suzuki and Kodály. Through dancing, singing and playing to the accompaniment of lively classical music compositions, children develop a listening ear at a young age and at the same time, pick up musical skills and concepts that will serve as a valuable foundation for more advanced musical development.
Dr. Lee Pei Ming is an Assistant Professor at Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music , National University of Singapore.
We chose the name STACCATO! to reflect our sense of excitement, vibrancy, energy and passion for music. In musical notation, the Italian word "staccato" (literally means detached) indicates that notes are separated in a detached and distinctly separate manner. Notes identified as staccato are played or sung abruptly and short, often to convey a sense of excitement or playfulness. The term "staccato" can also be applied to things that occur in rapid bursts such as staccato applause.
Our logo of a flamboyant staccato note is a pictorial reflection of our unconventional, fun and creative approach towards classical music. At STACCATO!, we teach "Classical with Creativity" ! The colourful logo also captures the diversity and multi-cultural aspects of our classical and world music curriculum.
