SUONA LESSONS

Singapore

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

The suona is sometimes know as the Chinese trumpet.

We think it actually sounds more like an oboe, but with double the volume.

Known for its extremely loud sound and distinctively Northern flavour, the Chinese suona is a military instrument that has the ability to instinctively take the lead of all other instruments when played.

Thankfully, being loud is not its only characteristic. It is as versatile as the Erhu in mimicking human singing.

Let our experienced instructors show you how to play the Suona beautifully, and tastefully.
