Guitar Ensemble

Aim

In OLQP Guitar Ensemble, the aim is to promote the joy of learning the guitar and develop a sense of achievement in guitar playing, instilling among the members the love and passion for music making.

What do we do

There is no better feeling than learning to play an instrument. In the Guitar Ensemble, members will learn just that in the weekly CCA sessions. Members with or without music background will not only be exposed to the different parts of a classical guitar, they will also learn how to hold a guitar, tune it and play the chords. Together with the virtues of diligence and perseverance, members will be strumming songs on their guitars in no time. 

During the weekly practice, peer support and group work are encouraged as the members are introduced to sectional practice with their ensemble mates. 

Building their confidence, teamwork and tenacity, the Guitar Ensemble endeavours to showcase their talents through various performance platforms and cultivate the appreciation of music and the arts.

About the CCA

Guitar Ensemble started in CHIJ OLQP in 2022. Weekly lessons are conducted for the P3 members by a qualified instructor. In the Guitar Ensemble, members learn how to hold a classical guitar, tune it and play the chords after being exposed to the different parts of the guitar. 

In the process of learning to play the classical guitar, members will develop a good sense of rhythm and timing, and learn to appreciate and express themselves through music. 

Guitar Ensemble members are given the opportunities to perform at various school concerts as well as community projects. Selected senior members will be trained to take part in the Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation (SYF AP) held every two years.
