SHENG LESSONS

Singapore

Looking for Sheng lessons in Singapore? You have come to the right place!

The sheng is sometimes know as the Chinese mouth organ.

While origins of the traditional sheng dates back to about 3000 years ago, modern keyed shengs used in orchestras nowadays are invented much more recently in the 20th century (Year 1900 onwards).

It is a free reed instrument that can be played by both exhaling and inhaling, much like a harmonica.

The sheng can be played as a main melody solo instrument as well as an accompaniment instrument, versatile enough to fit in a wide variety of music genres and styles.

Its smooth sounding and unique tone blends well with most instruments and its multitude of techniques add flavor to the pieces.

Let our experienced instructors show you how to play the sheng with great dexterity and finesse.
