HAVING always dreamt of setting a performance–based music school in Cebu, the dynamic couple Adam Michael Brown and Anna Marie Fegi finally saw the realization of their dreams with the opening of Brown Academy of Music (BAM) at the Northgate Centre in Banilad last Jan. 8.
Brown Academy of Music provides complete music education based on the fundamentals of music. The academy features the creativity and artistry of all students and teachers, and provides venues to showcase their talents.
BAM offers the following lessons: voice, guitar, bass guitar, drums, keyboard, violin, winds, and children’s music programs, which are designed to meet the US National Association of Music Education standards. These lessons are available for six-months-old infants up to the eldest or most experienced aspirant, and taught by the most qualified instructors, starting with BAM’s directors, Adam and Anna.
With their love and passion for music serving as catalysts, Adam and Anna essentially founded the Brown Academy of Music Method based on the the fundamentals of music, and not just about performance.
The couple believes that the musical Queen City of the South is ripe for the integration of music theory instruction into the total talent development of aspiring Cebuano students. All students are taught how to read notes, and are aided all the way to actual performance.
“Adam’s bringing the Western idea of teaching music to Cebu combined with Anna’s amazing performances and educational experience make the blend fun and interesting,” says Children’s Music Teacher Veronica Towers-Dioso.
Enrollment is now going at BAM, which is located at the 2nd floor of Northgate Center in Banilad. For more details, visit BAMCebu on Facebook, Twitter and Twitter and www.bamcebu.com. (Catherine Zeta Bayang/USJ-R Communication Intern)
