What’s the difference between Little Sound Pop Academy & Sound Pop Academy?
The age. Little Sound Pop Academy is for 6-8 year olds and Sound Pop Academy is for 9-17 year olds. 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 our sessions. We actually think this is an important process as you’ll be able to make sure we’re 100% right for you and your child before you commit to signing up.
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.
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 £25 per month and Sound Pop Academy membership at just £30.00 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?
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.
