Hi, I’m Valerie and welcome to my piano website!
As an experienced Singapore piano teacher, playing the piano for over 17 years, giving piano lessons Singapore for more than 8 years, I believe that the role of piano teachers is not only to have students learn the piano well, but also to inspire them to enjoy the beauty of piano music.
Since 2009, I have been conducting piano lessons in Singapore ranging from young kids to adults, teaching graded piano classes, to recreational piano lessons. My greatest joy of teaching comes from seeing my students enjoy the piano music they play!

Coming from a musical family background, Valerie began playing the piano at the age of 6. Still learning ballet then, she discovered the love for the piano after a few piano lessons. That was then she fell in love with it.
Valerie took her first graded piano examination at the age of 9, while juggling with the academic stress in Singapore’s educational system. But that didn’t stop her from achieving his Diploma in Music – ATCL from Trinity College London at the age of 17. Valerie also has her Grade 8 in Music Theory with Merit in her bag of music qualifications. She is currently preparing for her LTCL Diploma in Piano Recital.
Valerie sang as a Soprano in her school choirs since her secondary school days and served as the President in St Anthony’s Canossian Secondary School Choir and as the Assistant Student Conductor in Tampines Junior College Choir as well. With her strong background in piano, she also plays the piano accompaniment for her choir in concerts and competitions.
To further her interest in music, Valerie also learns how to play the Keyboard (similar but yet different from piano), and performs with her friends in church.
Teaching the Piano
Since giving part-time piano lessons in 2009, Valerie has never looked back since. She found her passion in teaching piano, and would love to share and inspire her students in their musical journey.
Thus far, she has helped young children to pick up the art of piano playing, fulfill the dream of adults who always want to learn the piano, and even teach pop songs on piano for students who are performing in a month’s time.
Other than just piano lessons, Valerie also organize annual concerts for her students to gain experience performing on stage. She doesn’t want her students just learn to play, but she also want them to learn to perform in front of an audience. (Isn’t one of the benefits of learning the piano is to play and share the music with others?)
In 2014, she organized her first student concert titled ‘Say It With Music’ with much success. Most of her students took the stage, some even with less than 6 months of lessons. The concert is not organized to compete among students, but to let everyone gain stage experience, and of course, a stage to perform for their loved ones.

4. I want to learn the piano, but don’t want to go for graded piano exams. I just want to learn my favorite pop song. Can you teach me?
What differentiates Valerie from other piano teachers is her expertise in teaching classical and pop piano lessons. For example, she has given piano lessons to an adult student who want to learn a Korean pop song on piano – Can You Hear Me by Taeyeon.

1) All My Love Is For You – SNSD
2) Kiss The Rain – Yiruma
3) River Flows In You – Yiruma
4) Viva La Vida – Coldplay
5) Swear It Again – WestLife
Piano students who wants to learn any pop song, simply have to let Valerie know and she will source for the piano music sheet and teach it to them. But do note that Valerie will still conduct basic piano lessons (if needed) to equip students to play the pop songs.

Although a piano at home would be good for learning, but it’s understandable that you might not want to get a new one right from the start, as it is not cheap (minimum S$9xxx). Hence, you may want to consider buying an electronic keyboard (S$300-S$500) first. A piano/keyboard would allows you to practice what you have learn during the lessons.
Alternatively, you can rent an electronic keyboard from Valerie.
