Eva Arora: Founder, Teacher
Eva started her music education in Germany when she was two years old attending the early childhood music education classes conducted by her mother. Since then, music is her passion and she learned a wide variety of instruments. Besides her long years of education in the western concert flute and classical guitar, she also plays piccolo, recorder, electric guitar, didgeridoo, drums and other percussion instruments. Eva is a trained singer and has been singing all her life in different choirs, combos, and bands.
Her classes embrace the principles of Orff-Schulwerk and she is currently mentored by a family & children’s therapist, a musician and a voice teacher. Eva is a Certified Foreign Language Correspondent, has an MBA and has worked as a management consultant prior to dedicating herself to Musical Monkeys.
After living in different countries, she met her husband and Singapore has been her home since 2006. The birth of her daughter was a key turning point for Eva giving her the inspiration to pursue her passion for music and children with Musical Monkeys.
Jayne Lee: Teacher
Jayne has been a violin teacher for 15 years, teaching with the Suzuki Method and ABRSM gradings to children and adults. Her interest in music started at the Yamaha Junior Music Course (JMC). That introductory course was the spark of a lifelong musical journey and this is why she has chosen to reach out to young children whose lives will potentially change after Musical Monkeys’ lessons.
Jayne enjoys the relationships with children and their parents. Music is a medium to connect deeply with everyone because it brings out emotions that express who we are. Children grow to love music and in return, music brings them joy and serenity. Jayne is looking forward to begin a long relationship with you and your child!
