The memories will last a lifetime! 😃

Becoming a mummy was one of the most wonderful moments and one of the most exhausting! My daughter, Sophie, has always been a ‘music baby!’. I would sing at home whilst she jigged in my tummy. I would always have music playing whilst doing the housework, ironing, in the car, anywhere really.

Well, I definitely started something because as soon as she was born she was very vocal. We soon made our way through Disney songs, YouTube lists and our karaoke machine. I needed help!

I was looking for some private singing lessons when Dan Cooper’s name was recommended. Dan informed me about Sound Pop Academy but I was a little worried due to her young age. When Sophie went for her taster session she didn’t know anyone but because of her nature I knew she would be ok because she is good at making friends. She came out beaming. I couldn’t have felt more at ease knowing she was in supportive care and a safe environment.

A year on and wow, the team has gone from strength to strength with some amazing opportunities and achievements due to their hard work and commitment. I am not only so proud of my daughter but I am so proud of the Sound Pop Academy team and I know other parents who have had the opportunity to perform with their children would know how that feels. Awesome!!

It sparked the passion and love for music that has been part of my life for so long. With a little prompting I plucked up the courage to audition myself for Love Soul Choir. Again I didn’t know anyone but it was an immediate connection. Not only have I had the chance to experience the same commitment as my daughter but I have been able to share the chance to perform with her in a Christmas show and also will be involved in a huge upcoming event, ‘One Sound: Magic‘, in March 2020 at Mayflower Theatre.

I am so grateful for the opportunities Sound Pop Academy give and the memories will last a lifetime!

Sound Pop Academy…. what a team!! 🙌
