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. This means they can both be used as teaching rooms, instrument practice rooms or band rehearsal rooms giving us a lot more flexibility and capacity. It’s also in a superb location only a minute’s walk from exit A3 of Wanchai MTR station.

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.

A few video clips of our students performing their hearts out at our Student Show in October. We were so proud of their progress and can see their confidence building each time we challenge them to perform. Playing or singing to an audience is something we believe is invaluable when you’re learning an instrument and we try to offer as many performance opportunities to our students as we can. Get in touch for details on how you can find your musical voice, and then share it with others!

Congrats Weisan!

Just as all her students do, Weisan works hard all year to improve and develop her skills. All this work paid off last month when she passed her IVA Level 3 exam to become a Certified Level 3 Instructor. Not only that but she was also given the honour of becoming the IVA Representative for Hong Kong… double whammy and double congratulations!! Well done Weisan.

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!

A short photo-reel from our October 2015 Student Show. A great time was had by all and we can’t wait for the next one…. watch this space!

The above video is a compilation of some of the performances from our last student show in May 2015. For many students, this was the first time they had performed live with a band and they relished the opportunity. Keep your eyes open for the next show coming in October!! 

 

We believe this sets us apart from most other music schools… we organise proper shows in proper live music venues for our students to participate in. We encourage all our students to get involved and actively try to join them together to perform with each other and – with a BAND not with backing tracks!! It could be you on-stage and in the spotlight at our next show… contact us to find out more.

Metro Broadcast Radio Tour... and more

Saturday 14th November was a memorable day for these 5 lucky Aspire students as they were invited to join a tour of the Metro Broadcast Radio Station in Hung Hom. Programming Director Michael Vincent was a very welcoming and knowledgeable host and gave the students a really interesting behind-the-scenes look at how a major Radio Station operates. Once the tour was over, Michael dropped a bomb-shell on our students….. that he wanted THEM to PERFORM on the Metro Plus station!!!

Performances

We feel it’s very important that our students are given as many performance opportunities as possible. After all, alongside regular lessons and practise, only performing can really help you to improve and build your confidence!

 

We try to arrange as many performances as we can throughout the year where students can collaborate with other budding musicians or perform on their own. Our next performance will be confirmed very soon…

Find YOUR voice in our group singing class – adults only! Everyone is different which means our voices are different too.

If you’re keen to brush up on your vocal technique, learn some songs, solo and harmony, there’s plenty of opportunities here. There’s no better way to get you started than learning with other like-minded people.
