What’s included in a Sound Pop Academy membership?
You sit down at your computer and Google ‘kids performing arts groups’ and Sound Pop Academy pops up. You look through the website and it looks pretty good (awwhhh, thanks!) and now you’re interested in sending your child along to a free trial to see what we’re all about. You know that if they like it then it’ll cost just £25.00 a month but you wonder what’s included in the membership fee. Well, let’s go through it…
The first thing to say is that we’re super upfront about our fees. It’s a monthly membership fee that you’re in control of. You can cancel at any time and it’s a simple monthly fee of just £25.00. We believe that high quality performing arts groups should be accessible to everyone. High level tuition shouldn’t be just for those with large disposable income. Everyone is welcome at Sound Pop Academy.
Once your membership fee has been processed, your child will have access to weekly, regular sessions throughout the year, run by the best creative leaders in the area. We pride ourself on our staff, who are carefully selected through a rigorous recruitment process. We only want the best and all of our staff come with a massive amount of knowledge and are usually actively working in the music industry.
We rehearse more than most performing arts groups as we don’t break our year into terms, meaning that we rehearse throughout half term breaks. Also, we’ll occasionally join up with other Sound Pop Academy groups as we approach performances and gigs, which could mean two rehearsals in a week!
Did you know we average 41 standard sessions per year? That doesn’t include any additional rehearsals, performances, trips and events!
As well as your regular sessions, you’ll have exclusive access to your very own members’ area. The members’ area is unique to us here at Sound Pop Academy and we’re very proud of it.
In the members’ area, you’ll be able to…
Practise and rehearse the songs you learn at your weekly sessions. We give you access to your harmonies and guide tracks. Practise makes perfect!
View your rehearsal, performance and social diary and submit your availability to these events.
Send messages to your academy leader, direct from the members’ area. Ideal if you have a question about a rehearsal, a gig or anything else.
View ‘Help & Guides’ that will help you along your journey with us.
Access the Sound Pop Academy store, where you can buy our latest merchandise. Hoodies, t-shirts, water bottles… we have it all!
Create a personal profile – all about you!
As well as the above, WE LOVE TO PERFORM. We perform as many times as possible because every performance opportunity will develop you as a performer. We produce and direct a summer theatre show where you’ll be able to showcase everything you’ve learnt throughout the year to your family, friends and the general public. Who know’s who’ll be there. It could be your big break!
As well as the above, we organise social events, trips, competitions and so much more. These may come with an additional cost to subsidise the cost of transport or tickets however, these are optional and we’ll do our best to keep costs as low as possible.
So, how does that sound? Sounds good, right? Come and join us – we’re ready for you!
We run incredible public workshops throughout the year for young people aged 5-17! Tickets for our public workshops tend to go quickly, so be sure to keep checking back for new events if we’re sold out.
