"I'd like to share my wonderful musical journey with Mr. Fuller. It all started a few years back during a short trip to Singapore for my diploma exam. I'm a self-t aught musician who had some piano learning experience earlier. However, it has been years since I studied and I needed to develop my skills before taking the exam.
I found Mr. Fuller through his website and decided to take a lesson. His teaching methodology impressed me greatly, and his optimistic approach gave me a new perspective on learning and understanding more about the instrument. Our discussions during lessons are not only about some practical methods but also go further about various topics related to the pieces I'm working on, such as the background of the composer, theory, and the stories implied behind each melody which encourage my imagination.
With his constant support and encouragement, I achieved a Distinction Certificate in my Diploma Piano Exam, College of Music, U of W London. He continues to guide me in developing an excellent repertoire. I'm grateful for his positive approach, support, and encouraging teaching style."

"Mr. Allan’s dedication and passion in teaching has shown that there are no boundaries when it comes to doing the things you love most. Throughout these three years with him, he has provided me with many valuable insights on music which has given me fresh perspectives on it. As the saying goes, ‘making music is not always about playing just the right notes.’
I noticed that when I was studying with Mr. Allan, it was like having a fatherly figure that is assuring. In that I find a calmness and composure, which allows you to bring out the best version of yourself. This eventually helped in building up my confidence to play in front of an audience. Furthermore, his constant encouragement has also allowed me to break out of my comfort zone, and grow as a musician. He is always generous with his time and will always go beyond to help a student in need.
I am very grateful to Mr. Allan for his dedication and effort in grooming me into the person I am today. Without him, this would never had been possible. So, thank you Mr. Allan once again for not only being a great mentor, but also a great friend."

Mr. A is a wonderful mentor and a fine pianist. His teachings and patience has inspired me to be a better musician by playing the music from the heart. Even though I came from a non-music background before coming into LASALLE, he saw the potential in me when I played the piano and for that, I am immensely grateful that I was under his tutelage. Besides academics, he also gave me confidence, which I never had before, to perform at a concert or recital. I highly recommend Mr. A as a mentor because you can experience his passion and love for music first hand!

"Mr. Allan is one of those rare teachers who is as knowledgeable as he is passionate. Every single lesson I had with him was nothing short of stimulating and inspiring. He takes great care to prepare and curate each lesson, going above and beyond to meet every student's specific needs.
A passionate and accomplished performer himself, he draws upon his immense wealth of experience and knowledge and presents each class with such artfulness and wisdom. He challenges you to delve beyond the superficial, to play from the heart, all the while keeping you encouraged and motivated.
His ability to see and uncover the potential in every student, no matter how deeply hidden, makes him one-of-a-kind. He puts you at ease, never judging, but always uplifting and understanding. Mr. Allan has significantly shaped the way I approach music, and I count myself as one of the lucky ones to have had him as a mentor!"
Gail Tay ~ B.A (Hons) Lasalle College of the Arts Singapore
"Mr. A is not only a teacher, but also a father figure to all his students. There are only a handful of teachers who are willing to go the extra mile with their students. Mr. A is one of them. Throughout my journey, he helped change and sophisticate the way in which I expressed myself musically, with his valuable insights.
Mr. A was always willing to devote his time for us, and was, without a doubt one of the most committed mentors I've ever had. I have always admired how well he connects with us on a personal level, with his ability to relate to any issues we may experience as pianists. Every lesson I had with him, was not only enjoyable, but also very knowledgable. He taught us nothing short of what we needed to know as musicians through his own experience as a performer. I am very proud to say that I had the opportunity to learn under his guiding hand. To all aspiring young musicians; Mr. A will truly bring out the best in you. With his gentleness, passion and love he will guide you to greater musical heights!"

Such a teacher who can instill a sense of calmness and confidence in a performer, whilst challenging deeper musical insights, is truly special.
He is not only a brilliant performer himself, but also one of the kindest and most encouraging teachers that I’ve encountered in my musical journey - always generous with his time, unceasing in his patience, genuine in his care, devoted in his craft as a pianist, dedicated to his calling as a teacher, and ever willing to go the extra mile for those who are so blessed to be under his tutelage.
No one leaves a lesson with Mr. Allan feeling dejected or disheartened - always uplifted, encouraged, and inspired."

"Mr. Allan has been a wonderful mentor. He is not only very patient and caring to his students but he truly inspires his students to enjoy learning and love music. He is externally professional and responsive yet warm in his communication style.
Knowing that I have been given the chance to study under Mr. Allan gives me a sense of pride myself. I can honestly say that I am amazed how far I have come and it definitely is far more than I ever expected. I am thankful to have him as my mentor.
Mr. Allan also conducts performance classes before each of the students' recitals, which requires extra time from the teacher and most teachers are not willing to put in that kind of extra effort and dedication. I would recommend Mr. Allan to anyone looking for a solid and enjoyable music lesson."
Joey Thew, B.A. (Hons) LaSalle College of the Arts, Singapore
"One of the most encouraging and patient teachers! Personally, I felt very grateful with Mr.Allan Fuller as my teacher for his understanding in the capabilities of his students and providing the necessary needs for both musical and technical aspects. His friendliness and the willingness to give more of his time to his students is what made me improve more in my piano studies which I find crucial as playing piano is about seizing the chances to perform and thus allowing personal exposure to a pressured environment.
