Giving Back to Our Community
In March of 2011 BMA started the Musician Of The Month Program to recognize some of our outstanding students and encourage each of our students to strive for greatness. Each month our teachers nominate one of their students for the award by writing a short essay and bio on the student and why they should be chosen as Musician Of The Month. Prizes for Musician Of The Month vary depending and the instrument the student plays, the level of their ability and always includes an embroidered limited edition BMA Sweatshirt, BMA T-Shirt and a Book. Here are some of our recent winners.
Sophia Liwag - Piano Student
Sophia is an OUTSTANDING student who actually practices her musical homework on a daily basis!! She always takes the initiative to go further into her Alfred piano book than assigned.  She finds music she likes on her own and starts working on it by herself.  Sophia is not only super cute but has an enormous amount of discipline for such a young student.  We look forward to seeing Sophia mature into a gifted performing artist and are excited that everyone will see her at the next BMA Piano Recital! Congratulations Sophia!
