Our History, Philosophy & Vision
The First Note
R.O.A.R (Revolutionary Outstanding Artists Rock!) Music Studio (R.O.A.R), the British Virgin Islands (BVI) and Caribbean region's premier performing arts school for piano and voice training of all ages and abilities, was founded in 2011 by Kyia Stoutt - founder, creative director, vocalist, pianist and music educator.
Out of a growing need, within Kyia’s community, for substantial voice lessons, her zealous desire to help people, and to spread her love and the language of music, R.O.A.R was birthed. The music school expanded, shortly after, to include piano lessons as a service offered. Lessons are available in person and online.
Teach In Harmony
With our instructors' many years of musical training, performance experience, and deep commitment to quality and professionalism, you’re in competent hands here at R.O.A.R!
Our devoted music teachers love imparting sound pedagogy, solid technique, performance-based theory while encouraging personal creativity and passing on to others this unwavering source of excitement in our own lives, always striving to do so in as many ways as possible. They are carefully selected and sought-after instructors in the area who have the privilege of teaching many talented students, and becoming acquainted with many wonderful families.
Our music lessons work best when there is an actively working relationship between teacher, student and, where applicable, parent. Our approach involves a healthy balance between structure and fun, with personal achievement as the ultimate goal.
The Future Sounds Good
The future not only sounds good here at R.O.A.R, but it’s so bright that shades are required!
We are growing fast and adding new programmes, including workshops and camps, on a regular basis. Instruction will soon be available in guitar (acoustic and bass), drums and much more!
Touring artists and artists in the commercial or theatrical industries will soon have the option of on-site vocal training with a vocal coach who will cater to their precise vocal needs.
Hello, I am Kyia Stoutt, founder of R.O.A.R, and I am so glad you are here! I strongly believe in the power of music to enrich lives and inspire souls. It is well-known that playing a musical instrument helps an individual develop a more profound and deeper identity, and it helps create a richer inner world. Also, studying music helps humans develop better motor skills, concentration, posture, the ability to set goals and complete them, and above all, it teaches patience and determination.
It is never too early or too late to start learning music. So, whether you're just a beginner or an advanced student needing guidance, let's explore music together at R.O.A.R, the best choice for piano and vocal instruction in the BVI, and in the Caribbean region.
