We are more than just a children’s ‘choir’

There’s lots of things happening around Southampton for kids which is amazing. We love the choice and variety for children across the region and it’s so positive to have lots of children taking part in so many after school activities. Drama groups, dance classes, karate lessons, pottery schools and that’s just the start of a very long list.

Back in 2016 when Sound Pop Academy was just a thought, we knew we wanted to bring something different to the table. Something Southampton didn’t currently have. We wanted to create a creative environment to compliment what kids are already doing outside of school but to add another dimension to the performing arts world, giving them high level tuition in a way that they wouldn’t have accessed before. Not all ‘high level’ performing arts schools need to be in London; nor do they need to be London prices!

And that’s why we started Sound Pop Academy. We are often referred to as a ‘choir’, but we are much more than just a ‘choir’. We are a singing, music and performing arts academy which focuses on high quality learning in a fun, creative and dynamic way, allowing our members to experience different genres of performances, from theatre shows to festivals and from Christmas light switch ons to community events and fundraisers. 

Wherever we perform, we bring our Sound Pop Academy spirit, talent and skill, allowing members to blossom into amazing young performers.

So if you’re living in Southampton or Hedge End and you know somebody who could benefit from Sound Pop Academy, then send them our way! We’d love to meet them. And we’d love for them to experience what we do.
