Music is alway the most popular interest among students, it may follow them all life long and some students may become professionals after they start their music life in university days. Singing, guitar, piano, drums, it is always not too late to start one of them.
Anyway music could be the first choice when someone wants to try something new, if you have the same idea but find it difficult to start, we are here organising music workshops with professional musicians and instructors to help you step over the first barrier. It is also a fantastic way to know more friends who love music too.
Just like music, you will find it is never too late to start a dance as well, street dance would be the most popular one, and there are also Tap dance, Contemporary, Jazz and Salsa which are also good to try once you have time.
