Take a deep breath! Go beyond urban sprawl and hectic rhythm of your daily rush (be it Singapore or beyond). Start listening to the little voice within your heart and start singing a song within it. Some attainments of life are simply not measurable by dollar and sense - such is the nature of music.
Some things worth measuring are simply unmeasurable and conversely... some things that are always measured are not worth measuring
If you even have the slightest interest in the cello (or violoncello), teaching and learning philosophy and methodologies, then this is a good place for you to hear me share my insights in music (and life). Even though my various commitments and my growing family keep me rather busy, I have always maintained a small selective private teaching studio since 2000 where I can share a piece of my musical self teaching cello.
This website will always be a work in progress, just like any one of us who are on an extended journey of learning. Feel free to browse around the following sections:
Who is Cellobear - This is probably my most personal section where I share parts of my life with you so that you can understand me as a person and what makes me tick.
The Basics - is a place where I distill down some of the most commonly issues or questions faced by someone who is interested to learn or pick up the instrument. Of course, all knowledge contained in this site belong to the opinion of yours truly and does not represent the wider world... or maybe it does.
Cello Journeys - contains videos and images of some of the recorded sessions (mostly done informally) of preparations and lesson outcomes. A number of it are videos of my own son only because I think it can give some of you a clearer idea of a possible pathway if you are considering to take up lessons.
Testimonials - are exactly what they mean they are - kind words from some of my present and past students.
Contact - the place where you may want to find out how to get in touch with me.
