Rhythm & Wave 1st Birthday + Student Showcase

“Life is one grand sweet song, so start the music.”

Yeah baby! I can’t agree more with this beautiful quote that’s on Rhythm & Wave’s homepage. We got only this one life so we better make it the grandest ever. In this lifetime, do what you want. Be what you want. Dream big and make it happen!

This could very well be Rhythm & Wave (R&W)’s motto – because they have achieved their very first milestone in Singapore’s music learning scene – the school is one year old! And I was there at Fullhouse Signature Restaurant witnessing this joyous occasion with all of its students. I was invited by Kim (founder of R&W) and Yvette (Kim’s better half) to join in the event and also to do up some coverage for them on my website. I am more than happy to do this, coz Yvette and I have been good sisters (given that I am nearly TEN YEARS OLDER than her lol), I absolutely love singing and it’s an honor to have this on my blog 🙂

HM (also invited guest) and I reached Fullhouse by 1pm and were greeted by these adorable dolls. If you have not known by now, Fullhouse is a restaurant that’s FILLED WITH SWEET CUTE STUFF!

P1000263

This stage is huge! I understand that R&W has regular gigs at Fullhouse right on this stage. I think it’s really cool that R&W students get to perform live here while learning!

I attended singing classes some time back and I can say that I love to sing, although now I only have the time to sing nursery rhymes to my kids. If I have extra time, I really want to try out their classes! And they are so conveniently located at People’s Park – i can totally imagine myself going for classes with Yvette and then heading to some SIchuan Mala supper after class ^_^

More of the restaurant – lovely chandeliers.

P1000272

Comfortable high chairs for bigger groups.

P1000273

It’s a really suitable place for girlfriends to meet up, have a hearty dinner and yak over drinks while the music plays on. It’s so cosy.

P1000275

Yvette and me in funky Gangnam Style sunglasses!

P1000276

I LOVE this particular table, it’s located at the end of the restaurant and it’s like another world altogether. Very romantic feel leh!

And while we waited for the event to start, I went around taking pictures of the students.

P1000277

Who were ALL very sporting and smiley 😀 😀 😀

P1000278

I could literally feel their joy and excitement in celebrating the school’s first birthday 🙂

P1000279

The ladies all very chio leh…

P1000280

This table surprised me the most. When I asked for a picture, all of them happily wore the funky glasses and even stood up to position themselves!!! They are actually students too. I totally wanna do this when I hit 40! These people look younger than the youngsters lor!

P1000281

Another funky family – I didn’t even suggest to them about wearing the glasses 🙂 I LOVE SPONTANEITY.

P1000282

The students are all very friendly and ON. Rhythm & Wave is one happy school.

P1000283

Where strangers become friends and family 🙂

P1000296

I’ve got my food too 🙂

P1000313

Their mushroom soup was GOOD!! So hearty!

P1000314

I took a couple of performance shots (was busy eating in between oops). Just to give some feedback (given that I was a trained getai singer more than 10 years ago muahahaha), most of them could sing and play well! It was music to my ears la 🙂

P1000316

A couple of guys even played keyboard and sang at the same time! *applause*

P1000318

P1000320

P1000322

Kim is such a fantastic keyboardist!

P1000324

Think they purposely dressed up in opposite colours.
