Sierra Leone News: New music academy at regent village

The Believe Academy of Music and Art in Regent, in the western rural part of Freetown, offers training in both contemporary and classical music.
While speaking to Awoko newspaper at the launching ceremony of the Academy on Sunday 18th December, the proprietor of the school, Christopher Reffell, said “We realised that there were so many people with the passion for music in this community but they lack the opportunity to develop their skills”. He said himself together with other young people with whom he shares similar passion, decided to set up the school in June this year.
The Academy “offers courses in piano, guitar, drums and vocal music”. The proprietor said registration for the course is Le10,000 and a monthly fee of Le30,000.
In his address prior to the launch of the academy, William Lorraine King admonished the students as well as the tutors to persevere in spite of the challenges they will face and to work in partnership for the sustainability of the institution.
Students also demonstrated the skills they have acquired so far during the ceremony through various musical performances.
