FAQs

Answers to some commonly asked questions…

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MINI, LITTLE & ADVANCED SOUND POP ACADEMY GROUPS?

We have three different groups that run here at Sound Pop Academy. The groups are split dependant on the child’s age. Our Mini group is for children aged 3-5, our Little group is for children aged 6-8 and our Advanced group is for young people aged 9-17. We design each session different to best cater to these different age groups.

CAN MY CHILD ATTEND A TASTER SESSION?

Of course! We’d love for your child to come and experience one of our sessions. We actually think this is an important process as you’ll be able to make sure we’re 100% right for your child (and they’ll get to see what we’re all about) before you commit to signing them up as a full fledged member of Sound Pop Academy!

HOW OFTEN DO YOU REHEARSE?

We meet every week of the year during term times. Should you decide to join us, you’ll gain access to your members area. Here you’ll find your rehearsal, performance and social calendar. We do not meet during the school holidays.

HOW MUCH ARE TERM FEES?

We believe that everybody should be able to access music and high quality music sessions at an affordable price. Too many performing arts schools and clubs charge over the odds for a second rate experience. That’s not cool. We’re so excited to be able to offer Little Sound Pop Academy memberships for £26 per month and an Advanced Sound Pop Academy membership at just £36 per month. You’re always in control of your payment and membership can be cancelled at any time. No expensive term fees. No expensive weekly classes. No expensive tuition.

DO YOU OFFER A SIBLING DISCOUNT?

Yes, we offer a £3 discount per sibling, for each month they are a member. For more information on our sibling discount offer, please click here.

DO YOU RUN THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER?

We have a few weeks off throughout August as it allows your child to come back feeling refreshed. That said, our summer is full of exciting things! Our summer show for starters plus, a summer social.

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN A SOUND POP ACADEMY MEMBERSHIP?

The simple answer is lots! Check out what’s included by clicking on the academy page relevant to your child’s age on the menu bar.
