Faculty

More than 25 years of dance, singing and drama

The BCMA teachers are experts in their chosen fields with excellent qualifications and levels of experience. Many bring with them extensive professional industry experience along with lifetimes of learning their craft. You can be assured that training in safety, child development and first aid have been undertaken in addition to their industry specific training.
We are proud to provide an excellent development program for aspiring young teachers. Some of our current teaching staff started at the BCMA as young students, gained qualifications through examination opportunities, trained in our assistant teaching programs and then progressed to become qualified teachers. Not only do they have the appropriate training experience, but the important cultural values of the BCMA are embedded in the way they engage with their students.
Our teachers work together to offer the best methods of instruction, the most useful resources, and the most exciting ideas in order to achieve the best possible results for their students. Each of our teachers is supportive, motivated, inspiring and experienced in helping students achieve their individual and collective goals. Our aim is to make learning music, dance and/or drama a very positive experience that will benefit all aspects of our students’ lives.
It is also important to note that all our teachers and office staff have Working With Children Checks, Police Check &/or VIT’s, and most have First Aid Qualifications.
