Violin lessons is a core part of our curriculum and our children receive weekly group classes from a trained professional teacher. We believe that violin-playing is a good way to train both cognitive skills and motor skills. Many of our children pick up violin at Arts Junior Montessori and music becomes a life-long companion.
We don't expect all our students to become superstar violinists. But we believe children should be given the opportunity to experience art and music from a young age.
Ms Kimberlyn Wu
Singaporean violinist Kimberlyn Wu is an active performer both locally and abroad. A graduate of the Peabody Institute in the United States, she completed her Masters of Music in Violin Performance with Taiwanese violinist Tseng Keng-Yuen. She is also a recipient of the
Peabody-YSTCM Masters of Music Scholarship where she completed her Bachelor studies with Ng Yu-Ying at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music.
A big believer that music-making is best enjoyed and most inspired when performing with others, her vast experience with orchestra and chamber music has taken her across Asia, Europe and United States.
Kimberlyn believes her journey of learning a music instrument has changed the way she views matters of the world and has offered her alternative perspectives to life. She is often in wonder
of the joy music brings to humanity and wishes more people can be part of sharing this joy through music.
“Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. They get a beautiful heart.”
