Ze Wen Seah
10+ years of teaching and performing experience
A working professional guitarist that keeps in touch with thriving music scenes
A self-improving teacher that knows how to stay motivated like yourself
Ze is a Singaporean musician and teacher that first began his journey playing original music and top 40s pop tunes around the country's popular venues. Eventually, through the music of John Mayer, he found a strong attraction to blues music.
Due to the improvisational form of the blues, Ze took some time away from performing to hone his skills on the guitar. During those formative years, he discovered the music of legends such as Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Johnson, and many more. The improvisational aspect of the blues also introduced Ze to jazz music, and he now spends most of his free time trying to learn as much as he can from great jazz musicians like Pat Metheny, John Coltrane, Wes Montgomery, Charlie Parker, and others.
Ze's main goal as a teacher is to help his students learn and understand the instrument better instead of simply learning the mechanical movements required to play a song. The old saying of, "Give a man a fish..." can be applied to learning an instrument. Learn a song, and you'll know how to play that song; learn the instrument, and you'll be able to play any song.
Ze's main styles are blues, pop, rock, soul and funk. He is currently working on his jazz chops.
