The Need for Music Education in Schools
Music Factory is the brainchild of one very dedicated and passionate piano music teacher, Roberta Anne Goh who firmly believes that music education is quintessential to all-rounded child development.
Roberta’s music career started as a classically-trained private piano tutor and piano accompanist in primary schools. While freelancing as a school teacher, she noticed that many early childhood schools did not have a proper music education program. Music classes simply meant children singing and dancing to a music CD. Many teachers also lacked the knowledge to impart music education confidently to children.
Determined to fill this gap, Roberta started developing teacher-training programs for schools and organising well-structured music camps for preschool children. The positive feedback received fuelled her desire to do more.
Make Quality Music Education Available to Every Child
Emboldened by a personal mission to make quality music education available and affordable to every child, Roberta subsequently set up the Music Factory in 2002 with her partner Paul Yam who runs the business side.
Today, Music Factory’s early childhood music education programs for babies and toddlers (Birth – 3 Years) and preschoolers (4 – 6 Years) are available in over 200 (confirm number) preschools, kindergartens and childcare centres in Singapore, helping over 10,000 children develop a love of music.
Teacher-Training Programs from the World’s Best
Roberta and Paul also believe that early childhood teachers deserve the best training programs. Music Factory offers teachers an Advance Certificate in Music in Early Childhood Education accreditated by the highly respected Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) in Toronto, Canada.
Over 2,000 early childhood teachers in Singapore have undergone the rigorous training at Music Factory.
