Impact

Our arts education programmes endorsed by the National Arts Council (NAC) are created to serve various purposes for students of varying ages.

Another aspect of our educational efforts is The TENG Academy, which strives to groom and nurture the next generation of elite musicians. The academy trains and provides platforms and opportunities for young talents to experiment and grow.

The TENG Company is the definitive source for rigorous Chinese music education in Singapore outside of specialised schools. Our programmes are targeted and have worked well in primary schools, secondary schools and tertiary institutions alike.

Our O and A Level programmes have ensured that both teachers and students are well equipped to tackle music exams and progress beyond.

The TENG Academy is grooming two distinct groups of musicians, known collectively as The Qi Ensemble and The Pipa Quartet. The academy is also starting The TENG Young Musicians Programme to groom even younger talents who have been carefully headhunted.

Apart from these groups, the academy also works with partners to present Chinese instrument appreciation sessions with a complementary experience, such as pairing with tea appreciation at a unique venue.

In a lecture-demonstration that is educational, accessible and presented with video clips and sound files, the programme will trace the development of the Chinese orchestra, ranging from the traditional to the contemporary.
