SEIMPI School Of Music - Discussion

Postby happymusicapple » Mon Dec 13, 2010 3:30 pm

Recently this year, i saw that there was quite a high turn over of teachers and staff in the school. There was some staff like Celine and Shirley and last time also a staff name Siew Mei who was very good but all disappear. Don't know why the management let them go. They are very friendly and provided good service compare to the staff now. Recently there was a new malay girl who was quite stuck up. Quite dissapointed with the management. The good teachers like Shenny also left.

I think the teachers in the school was good. Parents, do you have any bad experience with the school to share?

To tell the truth my short experience with them has not been good. The teacher was not good and the session was not structured. It was like oh she suddenly remember something then she will do. totally waste of time and money.

Hi there,
I had the same experience too with the young skinny malay girl but she is no longer there and the new staff in Funan are just as good as the old ones and I find that the new ones are even more professional:) The old one are gone and just hope the new ones are equally good.

My child was previously with teacher Shenny and from what I understand from the teacher, she left because she had to further her studies and my child is now transfered to another teacher and I must say that we had a good experience with Seimpi so far and its been like 3 years now.
:D :love:

Music teachers are very mobile. Most are freelance and they don't work exclusively for one centre. High t/o is normal. Unless the child is taught by the owner of the school:-).

It's very difficult to get teachers to stay "loyal" to a school. At some point, teachers will branch out on their own to teach privately. Music schools are generally for those who either just want to teach part time or wanting to gain some experience.

I must say the teachers are friendly and my kid likes to attend the class.

The only thing i dislike abt the school is, they only allow makeup class 4 times each year. For my dd's class, everyone had utilised 2 make up classes even though its only Mar now. Its very common to miss the lesson, esp when the kid is sick and u do not wan to be accuse of spreading germs in class.

I dont mind paying for period where the school is close for holidays. For instance, next wk is the one week school holiday and the school is close the entire week. So for the month of Mar, we only attended 3 lesson even though we paid for the month's fee. Its fine for us.

In turn, the management should recipocrate with not being so sticky with makeup class as it cost them practically nothing at all. The makeup class is merely sloting the student to another exisitng similar class the following wk.

Once i have use up my 4 makeup classes entitlement, i will move on to another music school since there is no lack of such school in spore.

I'm sure the rest of the classmates will do the same. Everyone is slowly dropping out and the class is currently conducted in half capacity from the past.

Hi arielle08!

Which seimpi are you with? I've enquired and not sure if this is the one or Yamaha music wonderland, or just take yamaha electone classes so am weighing my choices!

And gosh... I was confounded with those different prices for master teacher, senior teacher etc... makes me feel like when I'm going for facial and ask to top up $$ for this serum and that cream... :wink:

Which other music schools allow for makeup? I'm not sure if yamaha does....

Thanks! :D
