2 years ago, after Covid broke out and seeing how time flies, I decided to make full use of whatever time I have on hand to learn something new/pick up a new skill. I have always wanted to learn gospel music and waited for quite some time for the Believer Keyboard Program to start.
I started from beginner class and eventually moved to advanced levels. I have to admit at my age, I felt like I had to work doubly hard to catch up with each lesson.
But my coach is such an amazing coach. I enjoyed her lessons so much; she makes it super easy for me to understand, especially the theory portion. She is patient and always motivates us. She is also responsive to my questions outside of our class schedule.
When I first started the lessons, I was diagnosed with lupus and have difficulties playing the keyboard with my swollen joints (fingers, wrists and arms). 2 years later, by God's grace, I was healed of my pains. I can now play the keyboard with ease and zero pain.
With the knowledge and skills I have acquired about gospel music, I look forward to serving my Care group through leading worship.
My coach is amazing and so inspiring. I really enjoyed her classes. I still practise the very basics. The lessons motivated me to look out for resources that could keep me and another classmate playing and singing simple worship songs. Really love my coach’s playing and singing and the encouragement and energy she brings to the class. Thank you!
I've attended random keyboard/piano courses here and there both in my childhood and as an adult... and it was only at Believer Music that I finally understood chords!! The lessons are well scaffolded and bite-sized, allowing us to master bits at a time, slowly building up our skills by building on what was taught previously. I'm in my 10th class where we revisited the songs done in earlier classes and tried to play them in new styles, with the new skills we had picked up. A very good feeling of accomplishment. At almost 50, I'm enjoying learning and being able to pick up a new skill!
When COVID-19 hit, I started playing keyboard again (had taken lessons at BM some years back). Once Circuit Breaker was over, I started classes immediately. Learning has been a very fun journey for me as I was keen to improve my skills. The Teachers see this as not just a job, but a passion to impart their knowledge to equip more Christians for music ministry. All my keyboard teachers are very dedicated and will patiently answer your questions (no matter how basic the questions are).
I am very happy to say that I have now joined the BM Band classes as Keyboardist, which has been thoroughly fun for me, learning to play as a team and listening to my teammates (guitarist, bass guitarist, drummer, singer). Kudos to whoever started the Band classes as it is an excellent idea to have a Band class (with a coach) in BM so students can apply what they have learnt and bring it to the next steps. Enjoy the learning journey!

Hi, I am Vanita. Singing has been my passion since childhood. I used to sing both non-gospel and gospel songs. During my teenage years, I received Jesus as my personal Saviour and enjoyed worship. As I grew, I led worship and enjoyed it, but always felt lacking because I did not know how to play any musical instrument. I used to marvel at people in music. I wanted to learn to play the Keyboard but did not want to play any other music other than Gospel. A friend of mine told me about Believer Music. As I started my class, I felt that this is what I always wanted. The way music is taught is dynamic. Every class refreshes me because it has His Word and Music. I believe by the grace of God, we will go to a higher level to glorify His name. From the office staff to the coaches, everyone is so helpful because of the life of Jesus. Cheers to Believer Music!
It has been a great experience so far, learning Keyboard with my coach and my course mates. I have no regrets switching from classical piano to Advanced Worship Dynamics I, it is easy and relaxing. I am looking forward to continuing learning and playing more nice songs that I enjoy, to connect and Praise God with. I like Believer Music!
The keyboard lessons at Believer Music have been inspiring for my current group of learners and myself. We are blessed with having a great coach to guide us in our journey. Even though we may be a bunch of idiosyncratic ladies asking lots of questions, our coach has been humorous and capable in taking us through the lessons. We have now learnt proper melodies without sounding like we have stumpy fingers! May our worship of the Lord through the lessons be pleasing to Him. To all at Believer Music, keep up the good work!
Playing the keyboard was one of my dreams. Through Believer Music, not only was I able to play the keyboard, I was able to sing and play at the same time! Something that I have never dreamt of. This new skill has now given me an avenue to worship our Almighty God through Music. Praise and thanks be to our God!
I like the course, as it allows music learning to be done in a structured and relaxed manner. Through the group lessons I sat through, I made new friends who learnt and encouraged each other along this journey of learning. At the same time, our coach was patient and kind with us, as she readily shares her knowledge and skills, constantly spurring us to play well.
I'm glad to have taken the step to overcome the inertia to learn to play the keyboard!

I started from the keyboard beginner program and surprised myself by having completed the course till advanced stages. It was a steep learning curve for me having to learn the chords, rhythm and theory; there were also times when I wanted to give up but our coach and coursemates spurred me on to complete the course. This program enabled me, having no music background, to be able to play & sing worship songs in cell group. The credit goes to my lovely coach who is so patient and caring, always checking on my progress and encouraging me :)
