Dear Parents, Students and Friends!

I hope you are all having a wonderful time learning music at SoundsKool, please note the important changes below:

From 2018 we are adopting Cambodia’s International School Calendars. This means we are changing our event schedule and billing too.

New Music Study Term from 2018:

ONE TO ONE LESSONS (Private Lessons)

There will only be Two Semesters per year (Jan-June and July-December). This means that the term of study matches that of international schools. It will be easier for families to plan holidays and know when our term starts again. 

Existing students will be automatically switched, and billing will be adjusted. Check out payment options on the registration page >> Note that there is a 12% discount if you pay early.

New student can join at any time, even in the middle of the semester. Your billing will be adjusted so you pay only what you owe.

ADULT LESSONS

Adults have now an upgraded study option – you can still enjoy taking music lessons even with a busy working life! Study anytime between Monday and Friday 9am to 2pm, and access special rates. You can switch, swap or move lessons as many times as you wish within the semester (around 5-6 months).

GROUP LESSONS 

If you are taking group lessons (KoolKids, or any other group), note that the term of study will be of around 9-10 lessons depending on the semester. Billing is charged monthly and there will be a one month deposit.

FEES OVERVIEW

For an overview of our fees, visit the registration page >> and if you have any equiries simply call our School Desk on 023 211 416

We hope you find these changes helpful, and happy practice!

PS – A letter fro the school will be sent shortly about this article, including some interesting offers and discounts on pianos and guitars!


SoundsKool welcome the month of October by celebrating a Mini Concert!

 

A Mini Concert was held at #13 St. 178 Phnom Penh Cambodia last Oct. 1, 2017 that showcased the amazing progress of our students on their musical program.  Around 20 confident students performed in the event and dedicated their performances in front of family and friends.

Mini Concert

This event is made as a platform for our students to engage with an audience so they can learn how to perform.Beyond that, this kind of activity could help them build their self-confidence.  Without it, it’s too easy to fall into the trap of negativity and self-doubt.

And the worst part about being less confident is that it robs them the enjoyment of playing and the opportunity of even trying.

This is why we encourages our students to participate. We want them to take their chances and realize that it is okay to make some mistakes.

For as Peter T. Mcintyre once said: 

“Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong.” 

And we firmly believe that cultivating this kind of mind set will help them learn from their experiences and succeed in life.
