Connecting practice with theory, SMPAA’s rigorous curriculum aims to equip students with a conceptual and practical foundation, as well as strong artistic capabilities. As part of our extracurricular activities, on 25 November 2016, the first SMPAA Guitar Recital was successfully presented at SMPAA. With the participation of all Faculty of Guitar students and teachers, the event offered all participants an opportunity to discover more about a unique style of guitar playing – Fingerstyle – which allows the artists to express their personal identity and creativity through interesting variations on the guitar.
Through performing on stage and observing the techniques from the other performers, our students were able to take away many valuable lessons to apply to their own guitar playing. In the future, SMPAA will continue to offer our students more opportunities to help boost their confidence and skills.
