Tips on How to Write A Song

If you love music, and most of us do, it’s easy to find oneself humming tunes while driving to work, or singing along with friends in the park. But do you think you could write your own song? If you are learning an instrument, perhaps this is your goal. Here are some useful ideas to help you with your songwriting. Then you can combine it with your guitar or piano, and you are one step closer to fulfilling your musical dreams. At Shine Music School in Johannesburg we offer lessons in guitar, piano and singing!

60th Shine Music School Concert

Shine Music School held their 60th student music concert on the 29th of November 2015 much to the enjoyment of all who attended. The concerts continue to foster a love of music within the community, where both our beginner and advanced students can showcase their preferred musical style, instrument and what they have learned in the past months. It is an opportunity for all our learners to play in front of an audience, something the school strongly advocates as a huge part of studying and appreciating music.

Online Classes with the Professor

Shine Music school offers private classes online over Skype with Professor Sajin. For more than 5 years, students have been able to enjoy their classes with the Prof from the comfort of their own homes!

Offering classes over Skype has also enabled the Professor to stay in contact with his students while visiting the Barcelona Branch of the Shine Music School, Estudio Shine. We think it is a fantastic way to stay connected, and the school in Randburg has special classrooms set up for Skype lessons. So even if you don’t have internet at home, you can still enjoy music with the Prof at the school any time!

Visiting a Luthier in Spain

IMG_6700

Prof Sajin and his son visited a Luthier in Valencia, Spain to sample and buy some hand made guitars for the school in Barcelona. It was fascinating to view the inside of the workshop and all the instruments in various stages of completion. Both the Professor and Milos tested the guitars and ordered a few for the school shop. If you are interested in playing them or buying one for yourself, speak to the school and we can order a Guitar for you! Don’t forget that if you are interested you can visit our school in Barcelona. We have hosted South African students in Spain, in fact our teacher Simon came to visit a few years ago. It’s a fantastic opportunity to visit a new country and one that is famous for it’s music. You can go to Flamenco concerts, listen to classical guitar, and enjoy many museums and sights in the city! We would be happy to help you arrange your trip.
