Karaoke Singing!

We’ve recently opened up a new 4 session taster group singing class for adults called Karaoke Singing! 

This class is perfect for anyone new to singing who would like to learn some basic technique and quickly get learning some karaoke classics. Although this is a group class, there will be some one-on-one time with you (the microphone) and your teacher! So you will get the chance to pick up some tips and brush up on your skills. You will even be taught some simple harmony so you can help back up your fellow singing mates!

We thought it would be nice to offer this class as a 4 session taster course starting Saturday 27th January until 24th February, taking 17th February off for Chinese New Year. The 4 sessions cost $1000 and will start at 11.30am until 1pm. Classes are taught by Warren Lo. To register, you can get in touch with us.

ASPIRE EXPANDS

We are very pleased and proud to announce the opening of our 2nd studio in Wanchai. This completely new and professionally built studio has 2 well-equipped rooms both of which have full drum kits, PAs and guitar and bass amps.

It’s taken us a while as we’ve all been so busy, but finally, here it is… a video compilation of our students performing at our March Student Show. This was our busiest show yet, in both the number of performers and audience members, so we were delighted. A number of students are really starting to find their feet with performing and everyone did their absolute best – which is all we ask of them. Keep your eyes peeled for the next show in November 2016.

Choir is back!

We launched the choir early in 2017 singing arrangements of Beyonce, Simon & Garfunkel, Annie Lennox and Queen to name but a few. We ended the year with a brilliant Motown themed performance of Love Train and Amy Winehouse’s, Rehab. We’ve already starting practising some catchy and beautiful arrangements but are always welcoming new friends and singers! 

 

We have limited space but if the demand is great, we’ll consider expanding, so please don’t be shy and do get in touch. This choir is open for everyone! Our criteria only asks that you love to sing and are up for a laugh!

 

Each term lasts for 10 sessions and we take public holidays off so we try to make sure there are no clashes with schedules. If you would like to find out more about the choir, feel free to get in touch with us

Congrats Weisan!

Just as all her students do, Weisan works hard all year to improve and develop her skills.

Through the summer, we had a lovely group of students who came every week to prepare this song for our regular performance at CCC (an elderly care home). We’re sure you’ll agree that this is a beautiful version of the Elvis classic. Stay tuned for any summer courses we’ll have on offer very soon!
