We run incredible public workshops throughout the year for young people aged 7-17! Tickets for our public workshops tend to go quickly, so be sure to keep checking back for new events if we’re sold out.
You’ll soon realise that you are already one of us! 🎉
So you love to sing, you’re pretty good at it actually but… you’d rather jump out of plane than walk into a room of strangers and sing?
At Sound Pop Academy, if you have a passion for singing, you’re our sort of kid! Let us explain what you will find on your first session with us.
When you arrive at the door, you will be greeted by the friendly face of your Sound Pop Academy Leader and Academy Assistant. Don’t worry, your parents have already signed you up for a trial via our website and agreed a trial date so we know you are coming and we are excited to meet you.
We will welcome you into the room, explain what we will be doing in the session and make sure we give you a buddy. All of our members are kind and supportive. They have also all been a trial member at some point so they totally understand how you are feeling. Once you have a friendly face to talk to and you actually know someone’s name, the world seems a better place.
So you’ve started chatting to one of our members and now its time to start you first ever Sound Pop Academy session. Scary huh? Not really. We will explain each part of the session to you and we won’t expect you get everything right on your first session. As long as you are giving everything a go, you will soon learn quickly. We are a modern and contemporary young people’s choir so you will have probably heard most of our songs on the radio anyway.
After some singing, some chatting, some games, some dancing and some fun, your first session will come to an end, only you’ve had so much fun that you didn’t really want it to end and those 2 hours have gone by in a flash. Once you realise that the strangers you didn’t know before are funny, supportive, a little bit crazy and share your passion for singing, you’ll realise that you are already one of us!
