Testimonials of Loh Eng Soon, Eric

July 2015

“I have recently retired after 40 years as a music examiner. During that period I have examined many thousands of candidates and heard the work of hundreds of teachers all over the world. A few teachers have stood out as being exceptionally talented and successful and ERIC LOH is among them.

How best to summarise what makes him the excellent teacher that he is?

1. He is a first rate guitarist himself, able to teach and coach advanced level students, including those preparing for diplomas. But he is also sensitive to the needs of beginners, relating well to the younger student.

2. He cares about his pupils, enjoying an informal but business-like relationship with them, so that they want to work hard for him.

3. He is well qualified, holding both teaching and performing diplomas, including a teacher’s licentiate, the ‘gold standard’ as far as the profession is concerned, and he is always keen to further develop his skills. In addition to his musical qualifications, he holds a bachelor’s degree from NUS and an MBA (master’s degree).

4. He has one of the best records of examination successes that I know of, with numerous passes at distinction and merit levels.

5. He is a charismatic and enthusiastic teacher and students thrive on his energetic approach to study.

6. He teaches at home, where his wife assists him with the administration side, and where pupils are treated as part of their extended family.

I have had the pleasure of examining his students on several occasions so have personal knowledge of his thorough and careful preparation of candidates.
He is without question a leading figure in the teaching of guitar in Singapore and I cannot recommend him highly enough.”

“Mr. Loh is a very responsible guitar teacher. When teaching guitar, he always point out all the details and give me correct advises for improvements. He has many overseas students and I am privilege to be one of them. Thank You Mr. Loh.”

“Eric Loh is a dedicated and inspiring teacher with a deep love of music. He teaches with enthusiasm and a superbly positive attitude. The lessons take place in a relaxing learning environment and incorporate elements of theory, technique and musicality.  Eric understands brilliantly how to adjust the content of the lessons to my learning pace. He can always offer solutions for difficult passages and pays attention to details and dynamics. Moreover, he engages me in deeper discussions which make me see behind the music and help me develop my own interpretation. It’s a tremendous joy to take guitar lessons from Eric.”

“I first met Eric with pretty rusty guitar skills, having not played for about 2 years. However with his patience, dedication and effective ways of engaging you with his musical knowledge and life anecdotes, I achieved a distinction in the LCM Guitar Grade 8 examinations -a major milestone which I would not have been able to achieve without Eric’s mentorship and guidance. He makes every lesson something I look forward to which motivates me to improve not only my technical guitar skills but also my musicality as a musician.

He acquires a keen eye for selecting suitable guitars for each individual- a great bonus for me as a petite-sized lady as certain pieces require intense stretching.

Eric has not only become a guitar teacher that I deeply respect but also a lifelong musician friend. If you want to truly enjoy and appreciate the beauty of the classical guitar while honing your skills effectively as a guitarist, this is definitely the place to go to.”

“My experience with Mr Eric Loh started when I was only in primary school. Back then, I didn’t have a good impression of guitar playing even though I still held a desire to play the guitar at a high standard. This was due to my inability to appreciate the music that I was playing, and hence back then I was lazy to put in additional effort into practicing beyond attending lessons. But since I’ve started learning from Mr Eric Loh, witnessing his passion for guitar playing and classical music led me to understand that all music can be inspiring when played correctly, that music isn’t just about the notes.
The energy and effort Mr Eric Loh puts in to ensure the success of his students is evident. Other than giving appropriate criticism of one’s playing and recommending practice methods, he would even recommend strings and guitars to students according to their play styles and abilities and which are worth the price.
A seasoned Music educator, Mr Eric Loh manages to balance between making light hearted jokes and giving serious criticism, between engaging in small talk about music and imparting indispensable theory knowledge, as well as between giving demonstrations and allowing the student to practice at one’s own pace. This ensures he can help the student achieve the highest quality of playing while still having them enjoy the lessons.
With top notch standards reflected by his achievements in Music, advice given by Mr Eric Loh will always hit the nail on the head no matter what standard one is at guitar playing- beginner, intermediate, or advanced. Lessons will never be bland as they are decorated with his extroverted and fun-loving nature. He has been someone I can call both my teacher and my friend.”

“Mr Loh is undoubtedly a highly qualified guitarist and teacher. Mr Loh not only teaches, he inspires and encourages you to reach for even greater heights. If you are willing to put in the effort, you will definitely be able to achieve great results and achievements under Mr Loh’s unwavering support and guidance. I have learned guitar under Mr Loh for almost 6 years and have seen him go above and beyond to help his students. I enjoyed myself very much during lessons and am grateful for Mr Loh’s patience and guidance every step of the way.”

“Mr Loh is a very passionate and knowledgeable guitar teacher. He is a very experienced teacher with many years of teaching experience. I was weak in my playing when I first started learning grade 8 but through his guidance, I improved tremendously. When I have any doubts, he is more than willing to teach me. Not only he is very knowledgeable but also very enthusiastic which makes the lessons enjoyable. If you are looking for a guitar teacher, I highly recommend Mr Loh.”

“Without Mr Loh, I can definitely say that I’m unable to attain my DipLCM with such ease. Had it not I have never once felt uncomfortable in Mr Loh’s lessons, which proves to be a huge factor in my learning speed. He ensures that his students are able to get the most out of his lessons and that they walk away with a higher level of proficiency. When I had been learning guitar under another instructor before Mr Loh took over, my guitar skill was stagnant and I never dreamt of being able to play anything difficult. However, once Mr Loh took over, I was genuinely surprised by how my guitar performance skill skyrocketed throughout the first few years. With my ability in Classical Guitar, I went further, and developed an interest and passion for acoustic guitar as well.

Through Mr Loh’s recommendation, I was able to receive performance opportunities, going so far as to perform at the National University of Singapore for an award ceremony. Furthermore, I have had the chance to be his assistant at his stint at New Town Secondary School. Undeniably, they were eye-opening experiences that impacted me greatly.

Any student can easily testify to the numerous – no, countless – amazing results that he has produced. He has a great track record to speak for himself as many of his students are able to become instructors themselves.

All in all, Mr Loh is one of the greatest teachers that I have had the honour to be a student of, and his impact on my life extends way further than merely guitar performance. He did not just develop a hunger in me for further improvement in the guitar but in all aspects of life as well.”

“Eric Loh is an inspiring teacher who guided me through my theory grades with compassion, patience and humour. Eric understood perfectly how to create a relaxing atmosphere which made me feel at ease and made learning easy. The lessons were characterized by challenging tasks tailored to my needs combined with interesting discussions. His lessons helped me to quickly build a solid understanding on music theory and as a result, I proceeded from Grade 1 to grade 8 in less than two years. My achievement was made only possible thanks to Eric Loh’s vast knowledge, his experience and his great teaching skills. I, immensely, enjoyed my theory lessons with Eric.”

“Mr Eric Loh has been my teacher and companion for 4 years, and he is my second guitar teacher. What makes him striking is his fiery passion and undying dedication towards music. As a musician and educator, he never ceases to amaze me with the depth of music studies, be it theoretical or practical skills.
When I was in my nascent stages of music, I was inspired by the intricate melodies of the classical guitar. Through his magical hands, he is able to bring about the emotions of the music. This has helped me greatly in my musical journey throughout the years, as his teachings have made me understand that music is more than just the technicality, but also the expression. To be a qualified musician, one has to understand the piece that is played and convey the composers’ message across through their music.
Any good teacher would emphasize on the technicalities of music such as playing or timing, but an accomplished teacher, like Mr Eric Loh, encourages his students to focus on the real substance of each note and how music is played. His emphasis on tone production and phrasing has helped me develop as a guitarist. And I am sure that all his students can testify for that.
On top of that, Mr Eric Loh has been one of the most passionate and respectable mentors that I have come across. From his perseverance to teach even when he is unwell, as well as the efforts he made to allow his students to gain first-hand experience of performing in front of a crowd during the mini December concert that he holds annually, he has proven to be a dedicated teacher with the students’ interests at heart. As such, Mr Eric Loh holds a special place within our hearts as our mentor and friend.”

“Mr Eric Loh has been my guitar teacher since 2010, when I was in Secondary 3. His encouraging words and his firm belief in the potential of his students have affected me a lot, personally. He turned what was my simple interest in the instrument into a burning passion for music, much like his own. I will always be grateful to him for never giving up on me and for always pushing me forward even in hard times. To me, Mr Loh is more than just my teacher, he is an inspiration, a mentor, and a friend.”

“Mr Eric Loh has been my guitar instructor since year 2012. Mr Loh is a passionate guitarist and his love for guitar can be felt by all his students. He is constantly improving his skills and pushing us to greater heights. Mr Loh is able to help me in different method and this can be credited to his long years of teaching and experience with students. Under his guidance, I was able to advance from Grade 5 to Grade 8 and currently practising for Diploma. Mr Loh’s lessons are highly engaging and he shares as much knowledge as he can during our lesson time.
Apart from practical, Mr Loh also teaches me music theory. From his teaching, I realised his strong knowledge of music theory and he teaches me how to apply what I have learnt in practical.”

“Mr Eric Loh has been my guitar teacher since 2009. I remember joining his class at the age of 12 with a thirst for knowledge for the guitar. Mr Eric Loh encouraged me to practice daily and soon, I would be spending hours on end practicing over and over again till I fell asleep.

Mr Eric Loh taught me to be a guitarist but more importantly, a good musician. I learnt that technical skill is just one aspect of playing an instrument and it is what each musician brings to a piece and the thought that goes into every note that differentiates a good player from a good musician.

As Mr Eric Loh conducts his lessons in his own home. We students are treated as part of his extended family, being able to talk about what is going on with our lives in a casual yet professional setting.

Playing the guitar has taught me patience, perseverance and passion. For that, I will be ever grateful to Mr Loh and his guidance.”

“I have discovered Mr Eric Loh over at Registry of Guitar Tutor (http://www.rgt.org/tutors/tutorinfopopup3.php?ID=EL4107) when I am in dire need of a qualified classical guitar teacher.

I was looking for an instructor who can guide and assist me to achieve the certification needed to turn my life around so I can have a life changing experience to become a guitar teacher myself.

Mr Loh does not just simply churn out classical guitarist like a manufacturing plant (though he has and is continuing churning out a lot of certified guitarists in Singapore), he developed them from ground up. The passion he possess for classical guitar music becomes his guiding principle in being one of the best, if not the best, guitar teacher in Singapore that you can ever hope for.

I am an extremely slow learner, but Mr Loh’s patience and experiences has helped me to achieve distinction in Grade 8 Recital in Classical Guitar (LCM) on Aug 2016. This is something that the music school I used to attend unable to do.

Therefore it is safe for me to say this – You do not need to bother to look for other classical guitar teacher in Singapore as he is the only one that is highly qualified and attested by many who has gone through his lessons before me.”

“I have been under Mr Eric Loh since 2009 and all I’ve got to say is that he is the best teacher that I’ve got. He makes our lessons fun and interesting in a way we would never get bored of playing the guitar. Back then when my parents almost pulled me out from my guitar lessons, if not because of Mr. Loh who convinced my parents to let me continue, I wouldn’t have been able to achieve a merit for my grade 8 in classical guitar today.”

In my recent pursuit of my 1st Diploma in Classical Guitar Playing, Mr Loh has been mentoring and teaching me with much care and passion. He even went out of his way to organize a mini concert for us to experience playing in front of a huge crowd, so as to better prepare us for the upcoming exam. Due to his own outstanding qualifications and abilities, he has helped me to pass the exam with flying colours! I really could not have done it without him.”

“Mr Eric Loh has been my guitar mentor since 2009 back when i was in secondary school. Learning guitar has been my interest since then. i didn’t know anything about classical guitars back before i was attending his lessons weekly.

Practicing my guitar became a habit eventually, i had to practice it daily and i have make sure that my nails are not broken or injuried.

When i am stressed out from school, i usually picks up my guitar and practice my songs because it’s something which can relaxes me time to time.

Back then, i didnt thought of getting my Grade 8. But now, i got it, did it well and i got a “merit” score for it.

Mr Eric has always been there for me, be it life tips and advises, as well as, being a father figure to me. Without his endless encouragements, i won’t be able to balance my school work and guitar works and i won’t be able to get my Grade 8 certificate today.”

“Mr. Eric Loh has been my classical guitar teacher since 2009 starting as a Grade 1 student and up till now I’ve finally finished my Grade 8 LCM examination, moving on to Diploma lessons. All these years he has been very understanding and patient, moving me along the right pace that was suitable and comfortable for me. I never feel pressured being in his lessons and his inspirational passion in classical guitar pushed me further to explore a wide range of classical music. Everytime when I felt that I could not make the grade, Mr. Loh would restore faith in me and guide me to success. No doubt, he is a truly talented guitarist coupled with a cheerful and enthusiastic deposition which makes every lesson pleasurable and productive. I would definitely recommend Mr. Loh without hesitation to anyone of any skill level or even a Beginner!”

“Mr Loh has inspired me in so many ways to continue striving for excellence in my practice of music.
He shares his passion for music during his lessons and his dedication towards his students shows through their performance. I am very honored to be taught Mr Loh despite only learning from him in the later stages of my learning.

He help me to see what I can achieve and do the things some other teachers would have otherwise no confidence to do. He saw potential in what I can be and not simply just what I was back then.

The lessons were focused in polishing my skills to help me shine as a musician to not only be able to play, but also love the art of music.

I am very thankful to have him as a mentor.”

“Mr. Eric Loh, is undoubtedly a highly qualified guitar instructor, and possesses an advanced level of skill in performing the instrument. It’s not sufficient to just say that he had taught me how to play the guitar and give him credit for my proficiency, but he has done further than that. His lessons, personality, lifestyle and perspective of life edified me tremendously, and without a doubt it has extended to all of his students as well.

One aspect worthy of highlight is how he conducts his lessons. While putting on a carefree attitude, students feel comfortable with him, and recognize him not just as a teacher, but a friend. It may not seem like a serious attempt at teaching, but everyone can rest assured that by the end of the day, unknowingly we somehow elevated our guitar proficiency.

Under his tutelage for almost 7 years, it was all due to him that I had persevered in guitar, and also my dream of becoming a respectable teacher like him. He is a role model worthy of much better praise than a simple testimonial like this can give.

All in all, he is an ensemble of qualities that any good teacher possesses, and anyone can attest to that.”

“Mr Eric Loh is an inspiring teacher and a very talented guitarist. He is deeply passionate about the classical guitar and puts in all his heart in passing down his knowledge and skills to his students. His patient guidance allows students to not just improve their mastery of the classical guitar, but also have fun during lessons. He motivates students to work hard and persevere to do well for their classical guitar examinations, and constantly pushes students to exceed their potentials.
Being a student under him for 5 years, I have learnt a lot from Mr Loh. I have just recently completed my DipLCM in Performance for Classical Guitar, and in the past, I also got 6 distinctions for Classical Guitar Grade 1,2,3,5,6 and 8. This is all because of Mr Loh’s guidance and unwavering faith in me. Without his help and hard work, I would never have accomplished these and become the guitarist that I am today.
Mr Eric Loh is definitely one of the best performers and teachers of the classical guitar in Singapore, and I am really glad I decided to learn the classical guitar from him.”

“I have just successfully completed my Grade 8 Classical Guitar examination and am also a Grade 5 theory holder, with Mr Eric Loh’s guidance. Apart from my recent accomplishments, I have also 4 distinctions in Grade 1, 3, 5, 6 respectively. I picked up classical guitar back in 2009, being completely clueless about guitars and learning bit by bit from Mr Loh, to be where I am today.
Throughout my past 5 years with Mr Loh, I have learnt so much not just in terms of guitar skills, but also morally as he taught me to persevere, to have patience, to take personal responsibility and to have courage.
With Mr Loh’s encouragements, I had the opportunity to perform on stage in a small concert, to the public. I would never have overcome my fears of performing, if it weren’t for Mr Loh’s faith in me.
Being an aspiring teacher, I was inspired by Mr Loh. I have also taken up teaching, passing the knowledge I’ve learnt and to inspire others, just like Mr Loh did.
I hope one day, I’ll be one of the best performing guitarist and a selfless teacher, just like Mr Eric Loh.”

“Having been taught by Mr Loh for nearly 5 years, I have advanced in classical guitar playing at a fast pace, compared to my other friends who are under other teachers. This is mainly because Mr Loh has trained me from the very basics and allowed me to pick up quickly. Mr Loh has everything that you need to know about classical guitar playing and has attained remarkable achievements, even in teaching, probably one of the highest in the whole of Singapore. Also, having many years of teaching experience, Mr Loh teaches his students from the basics and provides them with a good foundation of classical guitar playing. Even at high levels such as diploma, Mr Loh is able to teach his students to perform to the best of their abilities. Learning from Mr Loh has been a great experience, where I have gained much musical background in this area and attained several distinctions in various grades.”

“If someone approach me for a recommendation of guitar teacher, Mr Loh will definitely be my sole recommendation! In fact, I referred a couple of friends to him before and they have since developed proficient guitar skills. Apart from the high qualifications he possessed, the years of experience in guitar teaching he accumulated is sufficient to nurture any keen amateur guitar player to minimally a diploma level. His passion and compassion is reflected on his teaching as he makes sure that every lesson is worth attending and the student gets the most out of the learning. I personally enjoyed his for completing my grades, I hoped to one day return to further improve my guitar skills!”

With dedication comes quality – I am glad be under the tutelage of Mr Eric Loh during my LCM classical guitar performance grade 8 examination. He gives his best in my development as a classical guitarist and has always known the right remedy from the problem.

Apart from imparting technical aspect of guitar playing, his knowledge for the instrument is comprehensive, and discussion in the context of classical guitar has always been fruitful.”

“Mr Eric Loh is a skilled and dedicated guitar player who has many years of playing under his belt. He pays special attention to the development of guitar players both elementary and advanced in the field.
His skill, technical mastery and coupled wisdom over extensive years of playing dictates his authority over the development of guitar players who are entering grade 8 or considering pursuing the instrument in it’s diploma stages.
Unlike your usual run-of-the mill guitar instructor, Mr Eric believes in the future of the younger generation of guitarists. This is evident from the fact that ever since he became a full-time guitar instructor, he has sent many young and budding guitarists for examinations and has produced numerous students I have witnessed perform outstandingly for myself. His student’s consistent and remarkable examination results speaks for him.
Under the fellowship Mr Eric myself for quite some time, I have known him to be an extremely approachable and patient person. He has instructed me from grades 3 to 5 and 5 to 8 for practical classical guitar over a small time span of 2 years. From a ‘pop player’, he transformed my playing into that of a more baroque mode and has always emphasized on keeping my steady classical foundation intact.
Besides this, it is noteworthy to know that Mr Eric’s love for the musical instrument goes beyond playing it but making it as well, having attended Luthier classes overseas. His time spent with the instrument speaks volumes of his dedication his craft and all those who have a common love for classical guitar, it is no wonder why many are inspired by him.”
