About Us

What is Joy With Music?

Joy With Music aims to provide introductory piano lessons for any child or adult with a passion for music. We focus on teaching the basics of music from understanding notes, playing the piano and expressing oneself through music. This becomes the foundation before you decide whether to pursue a formal music education be it studying the ABRSM syllabus or anything similar.

Private Piano Classes for Children & Adults

Don’t You Teach the Exam Syllabus?

Think of Joy With Music as the foundation. We teach you the basics of the piano and music so you can decide on whether to pursue a formal education in music. These days, we find many children and teenagers who have gone through formal music education but never truly enjoy the benefits of playing an instrument. Many of them hardly ever play again upon completing their higher grades.
It becomes just another certificate. We hope to inspire people to enjoy and love music, especially the piano. If you ever wanted to take piano, or quit, and wish you hadn’t, your second chance has arrived. Perhaps you were too young. Perhaps it was that rigid teacher and those boring exercises. Forget the past. Unleash the pianist within you now.

About The Founder



Founder / Pianist

V.Kugantharan (Kugan) was introduced to the piano at the age of 5. He learnt the basics before completing the eight grades based on the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) syllabus. Apart from being able to also play by ear well, he ventured into music composing and sound engineering at the age of 19 successfully producing many albums in the hip hop genre for local Malaysian talent. His music has been featured on all major radio stations in the country as well as being one of the first Malaysian music producers to have been featured on BBC Radio 1.

With more than 25 years of experience on the piano and fueled by his passion for music, he launched Joy with Music with hopes of inspiring more people to pick up this wonderful instrument and learn to express themselves through it.
