Instructors

Hashim (Shagies)

A music composer and arranger by day, Hashim won himself the COMPASS Top Local Malay Pop Song Award (Composer) in 1998 and Top Local Soundtrack Award (Composer) in 2012. One of the highlights of his glittering career as a guitarist with the Shagies was representing Singapore at Surabaya, Indonesia for the Singapore Tourist Promotion Board in 1996 and also one of the opening acts in 1993 Sentosa Music Festival featuring Bon Jovi, Rick Price, Jimmy Barnes and Andy Lau. Now, he feels that it is time to give back and share his vast experience and knowledge to the young and whoever wishes to explore music by learning and playing the guitar. With practice, dedication, and Hashim guiding you as your Timbre Music Academy guitar instructor, no goal is unachievable!

Mang (O.K READY!)

Having played for notable bands such as Zero Sequence (progressive metal) and Goodfellas (pop-rock), Mang is now lead vocalist and guitarist for popular Timbre resident band O.K READY!, performing to capacity crowd every week. During the day, Mang is lead instructor for vocals and guitar at Timbre Music Academy. It is evident in his heartfelt vocal delivery that he is dedicated to every performance. Mang is a firm believer that music is nothing without passion.

Sara (53A)

Lead singer, Guitarist and MicroKorgist of  popular Timbre Resident band 53A, Sara is a seasoned and sought-after vocalist and guitarist with 8 years of experience performing ‘live’ music at established local spots, including Timbre. Having performed at Timbre ever since we first opened our doors, Sara feels that it is only right that she too is part of the mentorship programme at TMA. A firm believer that nobody is too young or old to start learning music, Sara’s greatest achievement as a music instructor was to help a deaf student sing his favourite song.
