Success Story

Mr. Tan taught all three of my children. I cannot thank him and praise him enough for what he was able to do for my kids. He’s helped them complete all of the theoretical requirements for the Associate Diploma (ARCT), one of RCM’s highest academic standings, in a timely and cost-effective manner. More importantly their learning experience has been very pleasant.

Mr. Tan is very knowledgeable and patient. He has a positive attitude and attends to the unique needs of his students, with the goal of helping them learn the material as easily as possible. He also understands the challenges of students juggling regular school work with their music studies, thus he answers questions and gives feedback in a timely manner. Overall, I highly recommend Mr. Tan and his online courses if you are looking for expert teaching in a convenient and enjoyable learning environment.
