Our curriculum is based on the innovative and internationally recognised syllabi from Trinity College London (Trinity) for music, and The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) for dance. Trinity and ISTD 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 from Trinity and ISTD, with global validity and recognition. Furthermore, as Vietnamese culture and identity are our most valuable heritage that helps us stand out whilst integrating ourselves to 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.
