Our curriculum is based on the innovative and internationally recognised syllabi from KinderMusik for children from birth through age four, Trinity College London (TCL) and the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) for music; from the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) and the National Association of Teachers of Dancing (NATD) for dance. ABRSM, TCL, ISTD and NATD are the world’s leading examination boards for music and dance respectively, with the widest range of genres available. These well-balanced syllabi allow students to learn both the technical and performance aspects of their chosen disciplines. They also prepare them with sufficient knowledge and skills for international certificates and qualifications in music and performing arts with global validity and recognition. Furthermore, as Vietnamese culture and identity are our most valuable heritage that helps us stand out while integrating ourselves into the world, our curriculum will assist students in their learning, understanding and in developing the fabric of our traditional values.

Connecting practice with theory, SMPAA’s rigorous curriculum aims to equip students with a conceptual and practical foundation, as well as strong artistic capabilities. SMPAA offers three comprehensive packages: Feel – Believe – Inspire, that will set the stage for all students to achieve their highest potential in music / performing arts in a clear and structural framework.


This package is designed to introduce students to music and performing arts education within clear structures. Students will start building their foundational knowledge, connecting with themselves while developing their interests in music and the performing arts. For children and adults who participate for recreational purposes, this package offers life-enriching music and performing arts programs that suit the particular pace, needs, and strengths of these students.


This package acknowledges students’ progress and development with standardised assessment schemes and carefully staged goals. Students will be able to measure and recognise their achievements in music and the performing arts. This package will motivate students to enhance their self-confidence through mandatory yearly international examinations (ABRSM, Trinity, ISTD and NATD).


This package develops a cohesive bridge for students who wish to pursue either further training or professional employment as artists. All students will follow a structured program with international qualifications, and global perspectives, while taking part in various artistic pursuits. Students will further build on their established knowledge, enhance their performance capabilities and expand their expertise.
