FAQs

Can my child attend a taster session?

Of course, we’d love for your child to come and experience Sound Pop Academy and we actually think this is an important process, as they’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’re proud that we offer the most amount of sessions throughout the year compared to any other group around. Should you decide to join us, you’ll gain access to your members area. Here you’ll find your rehearsal, performance and social calendar.

You don’t have an academy in my city and I’d love for my child to join.

Awh no! We hope to spread our passion for singing across the UK so hopefully we’ll be in a city near you soon. Drop us a message and let us know where you’re based and leave it to us.

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 a Sound Pop Academy membership at just £25.00 per month. No expensive term fees. No expensive weekly classes. No expensive tuition.

Do you run throughout the summer?

Our summer is full of exciting things! Our summer show for starters, plus a summer social. We also break for a couple of weeks towards the end of August as it allows your child to have a few weeks off and come back feeling refreshed and ready for the autumn term.

What’s included in a Sound Pop Academy membership?

The simple answer is lots! Check out what’s included by clicking on the ‘Join’ tab above.

My child has a nut allergy, can they attend?

Absolutely. We’re a nut free academy!
