Just like a baby learning to walk, the skills taught at the Kim Kallie Performance Academy absorb into the long term memory and are accessed when needed.
The academy teaches students how to make commercial songs of their own and help songwriters develop into individual products. During their time at the academy each student develops a repertoire of songs that become very valuable for auditions and performances.
Kim Kallie Performance Academy cover all genres of music except opera. The students are watched, critiqued and ‘grown’ from all sides and each term has it goals, which focuses on different growth aspects of each student
