Our daughter Rayna, now 15 years old, has been with Bravo Academy since she was seven, and with Bravo's help, we have seen her grow both as an artist and emotionally over these eight years. Under the voice teaching of Artistic Director Melissa Bencic, Rayna has developed a mature classical and music theatre voice that even now surprises us every time she performs. Because of her association with Bravo, Rayna has won multiple awards, been admitted into a prominent arts high school, and of course she has been in many productions and recitals at Bravo Academy over many years. We have also seen her develop as a performer, not just a musician. At Bravo, she participates in music theatre, voice lessons, dance lessons, piano and theory lessons, even ukulele lessons!
At the same time, we have watched Bravo itself develop over the years, from a small music theatre school into a mature institution that is now capable of producing performers at all levels of the performing arts. The faculty is first rate, sharing not only their talent and teaching skills with students, but helping them to become mature and balanced young men and women. Members of the faculty, including Grammy nominated pianist Kara Huber, are themselves professional performers, adding an unparalleled excitement to the atmosphere at Bravo.
I can, without reservation, give Bravo Academy the highest recommendation as an all around academy for the performing arts.
