History of Nanyang Polytechnic Guitar Club

Established in 1994, the Nanyang Polytechnic Guitar Club is one of the oldest clubs in NYP. Today, we have more than 70 members in the club, consisting of 23 seniors and about 50 junior members. At Guitar Club, we believe every member is just as important and everyone has a part to play. As such, we welcome anyone regardless of skill and knowledge and ensure that everyone is satisfied be it whether you are learning anew or showcasing your existing skills.


The guitar ensemble consists of three sections - rhythm, melody and base sections. Though we are mainly a classical guitar ensemble, opportunities are given to members to showcase their skills on acoustic and electric guitars as well.


Under the guidance of our instructor Mr Gaspar, our ensemble also seeks to experiment with a wide variety of genres. Our annual concert La Guitare in 2013 had Japanese anime as its theme. The concert surprised and entertained audience with musical pieces from Ponyo, Howl’s Moving Castle and the video game Mario Brothers.
