Upcoming Events

Bahama Village Music Program is proud to announce that two of our outstanding high school musicians have received full tuition scholarships to the Berklee College of Music’s Aspire: Five-Week Music Performance Intensive in Boston! Leia Bryan and Mercedes Da Silva have the amazing opportunity to attend the Berklee 5-week Summer Program for high school musicians beginning July 6th in Boston, MA.

Both BVMP student teachers just finished their Junior year at Key West High School and play in the KWHS marching, symphonic, and jazz bands. Leia Bryan, 17, teaches guitar and piano lessons at BVMP and assists with BVMP’s School of Rock class. Leia plays guitar, bass, ukulele, drums, piano, trumpet, french horn, and sings, but has chosen guitar as her focus for the 5 week performance program. Mercedes Da Silva, 17, started learning the piano at age 5 with Robin Kaplan and joined band in 7th grade and learned to play the saxophone. Mercedes teaches piano lessons at BVMP and now plays all the saxophones, focusing on baritone sax at Berklee this summer.

BVMP is so proud of all the hard work these students have done to earn this scholarship, including attending weekly music theory classes with Larry Baeder.

BVMP’s membership in the Berklee City Music Network, a national network of music education non-profits, affords us two full-tuition scholarships to the highly acclaimed program.

Not covered are the costs of housing, meal plans, books and travel expenses.

Thanks to the Richard Crooks and Wayne Hammond Scholarship Funds, each student will attend at no cost to them.

You can support these amazing students by donating to these funds in their honor.

Thanks to everyone for supporting these amazing young musicians on their journey!
