SMPAA offers private coaching sessions for young artists who wish to perfect their singing, dancing and performance technique, so that they can be prepared for a career in the local and international music/arts industry. Our master teachers in voice and in commercial street hip-hop will be offering one-on-one and group sessions that are structured to meet the individual needs of pre-professional aspiring young artists, as well as professional artists passionate in continuing their development.
We also offer vocal production training, audition preparation, choreography/ artistic development training ... – given the extensive background of our master teachers in training the top artists in Vietnam, we will also provide the most up-to-date industry advice to guide young artists on achieving their aspirations. All of these sessions will be arranged to fit the specific needs of the student to achieve maximum results.
FOUNDER OF SMPAA
I want to welcome you and your family to Soul Music & Performing Arts Academy (SMPAA).
I believe that music and performing arts education is an integral part of an individual’s development, as well as an important means of self-expression. As the landscape of Vietnam continues to change rapidly, we are seeing a new emphasis on soft-skills such as effective communication, critical thinking, creative problem solving and teamwork, all of which have been proven to be enhanced by education in music and performing arts.
At SMPAA, we believe that our students need to FEEL, so that they can BELIEVE in themselves, to then be able to INSPIRE all those around them. It is our students’ holistic growth on the musical, creative and personal level that continues to inspire all of us at SMPAA.
We look forward to working with you to strengthen our commitment to achieving a high quality of music and performing arts education in this country. We thank you for giving me and SMPAA the opportunity to be part of your life, and together, I am sure that we will achieve the musical and personal goals that you have set out to achieve.
I look forward to seeing you around SMPAA.
BUI TRIEU YEN
DIRECTOR OF MUSIC
Music is the breath of life, a reflection of the culture of today's society as it can preserve the values of life and nurture humanity each day. Therefore, music education is a long-term process of development. I believe the technical focus of classical music and the free spirit of contemporary music are key elements of a comprehensive music education. These concepts play a major role in the music education process in order to enrich the holistic development of an individual.
Dr. ALEXANDER TÚ
DIRECTOR OF PERFORMING
I am really fortunate to have completed a PhD in Occupational Therapy investigating the benefits of dance to the well-rounded development of Vietnamese youth, as well as to pursue my passion for the performing arts. With years of professional training in dance and performing arts, I am certain that performing arts education facilitates children’s physical development, and intellectual and cognitive properties through creativity. Dance offers inter-personal exploration and expression for self-identity and overall well-being. As such, I have long believed that performing arts are a crucial component of a comprehensive education for all students. My desire is to build a proper performing arts program, emphasizing creativity while integrating international qualifications and standards in order to uphold my purpose, which is to support the growth of the mind, body and soul of all students.
