Concert by Toa Payoh Guitar Club May 2014

You are invited to our concert on 31st May 2014, Saturday, 7pm – 9.45pm. This is a free event is opened to the public. It is mainly a recruitment drive but there’s no obligation to join the club.

However, should you have the intention, this event provides you an overview of what the club offers in terms of guitar playing and other club activities, and an oppurtunity for you to mingle with our club members to find out more about the club. If not, just come and enjoy the music.

If you’d like to come just register here. Let us know the number of tickets required. Time is not confirmed. I shall keep you posted in due course.

In the past, Toa Payoh Central CC required attendees to provide their personal data before releasing the tickets for statistic purposes. The Guitar Club do not keep these records.

When the PA’s page is ready, we will direct you to that particular page to input your data. However, if this requirement is not needed this year, we’ll send you the confirmation of seats.

I am not in the organising committee, just an ordinary member of Toa Payoh Guitar Club. I’ll forward your registration to the Committee. I do not guarantee availabily of seats. But as this announcement is ahead of the official site – www.tpgc.org, your chances of securing a seat is almost 100% as official announcement has yet to be made.


Capacity of Toa Payoh mini theatrette at #03-03 is 106. Once the organising team launch its campaign with PA, it will be filled up within days. So if you are interested, hurry…

Play Guitar Singapore is ready

Now that the handover of tpgc.org is completed, I’ll continue blogging here.

This blog was originally created with the intention of group blogging for members in mind. The management committee approved my proposal but unfortunately, no members were interested, or I didn’t market enough the idea to the club.

I guess people are more interested updating their Facebook nowadays. I’ll make the connection with them to their Facebook account instead.

Guitar Playing Tips by Ernest Kwok

There were some articles by Ernest Kwok on guitar playing but they had been deleted. I backup the static pages but not the blog as it was saved separately (in the database as in the case of a WP blog).

I’ll try to recover them at a later date and have them posted here.

When I was asked to build a website for the club, I asked the chairman, “What’s the objective of the website for the club?” I don’t remember the answer, but my task was to repair the website.

I need an objective, a direction to build a website. I chose recruiting new members then. This is no longer the objective of this blog, but I’ll do something similar here. Look up for details in my later postings.

Besides recruiting new blood for the club, there’s another thing I like to do with this blog – To get ahead of the club’s website in search engine rankings.

I’ve built a website that stayed ahead in most search terms for guitar club and guitar playing in Singapore. Now I’ll build a site on a subdomain to overtake it.

I love the challenge, and it will serve as a showcase for my SEO and web marketing business.

More importantly, I am now able to do what I had wanted to do – building a site on my own domain…

Promoting TPGC, Connecting Guitarists

Hello, welcome to Play Guitar Singapore.

This is the unofficial blog of TPGC. It has to be unofficial. This is hosted on my personal domain.

The original blog at tpgc.org was deleted due to a site revamp. The new web team who took over me is in the process of converting the site with static pages into a WordPress run site and hence the blog was no longer necessary. Continue reading
