BMA Charter

It is the aim & mission of all associated with BMA to provide the best learning environment experienced anywhere in Malaysia; establish a solid foundation for future generations; & thus provide a legacy of quality music learning to which all can access.

As part of that overall vision BMA will host & develop new ensembles & learning programmes to further enhance performance opportunities & develop a school-wide knowledge base for both BMA & non-BMA students, including, & not limited to; choirs, orchestras, bands, ensembles, lectures, workshops & masterclass. The majority of these will meet on a weekly basis, or at least 8 weeks in any one term.

So that BMA can guarantee all that is stated here, all group activities at BMA will necessitate a weekly subscription, with registration & or deposit operating under general BMA Terms & Conditions. Each will start or run when minimum demand is generated. In calculating the potential costs involved, BMA has undertaken extensive research to gain a true perspective relative to the current environment both at a national & school level, as well integrating the expectations of Bentley Music, BMA’s students & its teaching staff.

Our Promise

    • All groups will habitually benefit, by default, from the best working & learning environment regarded as second to none in Malaysia. This extends to specific instruments, associated music furniture & resource material as well the building, teaching & support staff.
    • Each ensemble will be led, directed & conducted by experienced BMA staff & or external qualified musicians from the best that Malaysia has to offer.
    • From time to time, international guest musicians will be invited to lead these groups.
    • All core activities will meet weekly with a minimum operation of 8 times per term, or 42 weeks a year.
    • Some activities may meet twice a week & have tutorials, or: ‘sectionals’.
    • As & when numbers allow, a limited number of scholarships will be available. (BMA will publish more information on this in due course.)
    • On occasion, additional associated holiday programmes, tours & exchange programmes will be organised. These may incur additional fees relative to that programme.
    • Each group will perform on a regular basis at, or outside of BMA, nationally and internationally.
    • All ensembles are available for corporate sponsorship & BMA will pass on the cascading benefits of any such third party financial support to the students involved.
    • All ensembles will follow the standard group T&C at BMA.
    • All ensembles require individual registration fees.
