About

The Guitar Ensemble was established by a small group of guitar enthusiasts in 2004. Through the years, membership has grown and members learn a wide range of repertoire that includes classical to contemporary pieces as well as Latin pieces like Flamenco Farruca”.

Apart from participating in the biennial Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation, the ensemble performs in public concerts and at various school events. The CCA collaborates with other music CCAs and interacts with guitarists from other schools at exchange programmes.

Through the various performances and practices, SJC Guitar Ensemble members are given opportunities to develop our passion and stretch their musical potential. As they hone their skills,, our members build their confidence and develop a sense of team spirit while constantly striving for excellence in all that we do.

Objectives

  • To groom students into competent musicians.
  • To enable students to be confident guitarists with poise and grace.
  • To instill a lifelong passion for music.
