How are our keyboard lessons different from other music schools?

keyboard lessons - practise rooms

Free practice studios for active PBE students **No booking required**

As an enrolled PBE student, you are entitled to use our practice area, furnished with digital keyboards and individual lamps dedicated, for personalized enclosure. We provide complimentary earphones as well.
keyboard lessons - keyboard teachers

We testify as a team of teachers with no attitude issues, during keyboard lessons

The truth is that musicians are infamous for their eccentricity. We like to highlight that this is not an excuse for musicians to exhibit any sort of attitude. As musicians, our dream is to impart our knowledge and cultivate it.
keyboard lessons - school

During your keyboard lessons, you have the liberty to change your teacher if necessary

From our list of teachers, we will recommend and assign the most suitable teacher for your keyboard lessons. You are allowed to switch your teacher should things not work out as well. Above all, this is one of the benefits of joining a music school as you are not confined to one teacher.
keyboard lessons - pop songs

Play Pop songs, not nursery rhymes like
'Mary had a little Lamb'

Our library contains 2000 over fake sheets which are suitable for learning. If there is a song unlisted in our library, you can request and we can transcribe for you with no fee. All songs are strictly for educational purposes only.

keyboard lessons - music business

Hollow prosperity do NOT motivate us.
Money isn’t our passion.

Since 2003, the culture of our school is everything about music, not money-making. Although we understand the basic principles of running a business, hollow prosperity does not motivate us. You will never be made to purchase any instruments., score sheets, or anything of that sort.
keyboard lessons - performing in Japan

Invitation to perform at our annual student recitals: locally or in Shinagawa (Japan)

Every year, there are 2 annual student recital concerts. One is held in Singapore and the other is held in Shinagawa (Japan) – 5 Chome – 18 – 1 Higashioi, Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo-to 140 – 0011. We showcase our students of different levels, even complete beginners.

Local & International celebrities / guest artistes / music collaborators

For the most part, PBE was never a ‘star-struck’ music school or at least our culture was never about grooming students to be artistes but rather hobbyist musicians. Nevertheless, our brand identity has attracted local celebrities (Chen Xiuhuan, Jeremy Chan, Maxi Lim, Sora Ma, Zhang ZhenHuan) to learn from us and we are really very honored.
We also like to take the opportunity to thank all of our PBE guest artistes and music collaborators we have worked with since 2003.
