Music is a part of all of us. Some see it as a form of relaxation and others might see it as a lifestyle choice. Either way, it is something that is appreciated! Be it the lyrics or the tune itself.

A composition is a delicate piece of artwork that has evolved with us. These places in Singapore appreciate this artwork. So do enjoy and relax to the different genres and variations that they have to offer!
