About Our Academy

Our motto is ‘Bringing Performance to Life’ and at The British Academy we really mean it. Our aim is to develop YOUR performance potential and stimulate YOUR creativity. If it’s singing, acting , dancing or playing an instrument, at BAPA you can do it all. If you are tired of simply doing exams and lost the passion for your instrument then come to BAPA where all our students are encouraged to perform whether in concerts in our own Windsor Hall, musicals, recitals; as a soloist, in ensembles, groups and even choirs. In addition to individual tuition, all students are required to join a relevant ensemble once a week from their second term e.g. choir, string, brass or woodwind ensemble. If you have always yearned to play an instrument, love singing, want to learn to dance or return to an instrument, we are here to help you.


A very warm welcome from The British Academy of Performing Arts!

Here at the British Academy, our aim is to give our students the very best performing arts education in Malaysia. We are proud that our tutors set the benchmark by having trained at some of the finest universities and music conservatories in the world, and they all hold a degree or masters. Not only are they excellent in their field, but they are as passionate as I am about performing. Learn with us, and you will naturally be as passionate too!

Developing a student’s potential, confidence, and enthusiasm as a performer will always be central to everything we do. Students are supported and encouraged throughout, whether in acting, singing, dancing, or playing a musical instrument; individually, or as part of a group, ensemble or class. To that end, our goal is to provide a thorough basic grounding at every level, in whichever chosen discipline, and to offer wide and varied performance opportunities from the start. Progress is celebrated at every milestone, and where appropriate, through examinations with ABRSM and Trinity College London and others.

We welcome All Ages. All Abilities. All Disciplines. Some of our courses even start from birth. I believe you are never too young or too old to learn something new, or to develop the love of the performing arts. With discipline, expertise, practice and passion, you can achieve the unimaginable. If you can dream it, we can bring it to life.

Join us now and let the journey begin.
