New pop music academy launches in the city for 7–17 year olds
Southampton based Sound Pop Academy have launched its singing academy at two locations in its hometown of Southampton for young singers and aspiring performers.
Directors, Mike Evans and Dan Cooper come with a vast amount of experience from the live performance and music industry.
Mike Evans said: “We wanted to create a contemporary, modern and fresh approach to music learning, giving our members opportunities to perform at incredible theatre shows, outdoor events and festivals. There’s nothing out there like it.”
Following the success of their bespoke three day summer workshop in August, Sound Pop Academy have just launched their brand new website which comes with an online members area, where members can view their rehearsal and performance calendar, listen to their harmony parts and take advantage of help and guides whilst at home.
Dan Cooper, who also runs Southampton and Bournemouth based Love Soul Choir said: “Our focus will be on providing first class tuition to our members. Harmony skill, group singing, slick choreography and loads of performance and social opportunities is something we’re really excited about.”
Mike added: “We believe that everybody should be able to access music and high quality music sessions at an affordable price. 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”.
Academies will run at the d.@rt Centre, Wildern Lane from Tuesday 25 September and Richard Taunton Sixth Form College, Hill Lane from Thursday 26 September.
Sound Pop Academy are a hub partner of Southampton Music Hub, and delivered school-based workshops last year, inspiring young singers through pop music repertoire.
