Fabian Lim, a graduate from Berklee College of Music, is well-regarded in Singapore’s music circle, specializing in the saxophone.
Fabian has performed with many local music dignitaries such as Dick Lee, Jeremy Monteiro, J.J Lin, Iskandar Ismail, A-Do, Fann Wong and also worked with international performers including Sandy Lam, A-Mei, Sky Wu, Eric Suen, Joanna Wang and Soda Green.
He has also played with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, the SAF Central Band, People’s Association Singapore Pop Orchestra, Thomson Big Band and was a featured saxophone soloist with PhilWinds and New World Orchestra.
I first heard Fabian play at a wedding a couple of years ago and I was completely blown away. At that time I had just re-started saxophone lessons at Yamaha after a 40 year gap (since school band days). Having completed the Yamaha course, I had a fairly decent tone and could play quite competently, but I found that I had reached a sort of plateau in my musical adventure that I couldn't get out of. I really needed help. This is when I remembered Fabian and reached out to him. From my very first lesson with him I knew I had found the right teacher for my needs. He immediately understood my problem and together we worked out a road map that he felt would help take me to the next level.
Fabian has re-energised in my musical journey.
Some of you might feel you can use web-based teachers to learn the saxophone. Up to a point you might be able to; but believe me nothing beats having a teacher like Fabian who is a performer and music educator with a deep love and appreciation of music. I feel truly blessed to have Fabian as my teacher.
My teenager dream was to play the saxophone. 25 years later, I realise it with Fabian’s help. It’s a triple challenge as it’s new for me, I never learned the bases of music and we speak English (I am French). He really adapts lessons to me and knows how to explain new notions to a beginner. He teaches me how to recognise the notes of a song I like to be able to play it by my own. He always encourages me. He also helped me to choose and buy a saxophone and adapted accessories. In two months, I learned so many things. Thank you Fabian!
Fabian has been teaching the saxophone to Gabriel for almost 1 year. Gabriel was a beginner. Fabian is a very special coach as he adapts his pedagogy to the personality of his students. My son loves him, he says of him:” he is an entertaining professor and makes the lessons very fun”. As a parent, I would add, he is extremely patient, very good communicator and excellent at transmitting the taste of learning. I highly recommend him as a coach of instrument.
