Brenda Meiring Theory
Brenda Meiring het van kleins af ‘n liefde vir musiek. Op skool voltooi sy matriek met twee musiekvakke in klavier en klarinet. ‘n Belangstelling in jazz lei tot ‘n kwalifikasie in Ligte Musiek aan die Technikon Pretoria (klavier en klarinet) met voortgesette privaatlesse in klassieke musiek in sang en teorie.
Sedert 1996 bied sy tersiêre opleiding by verskeie instansies aan, is betrokke by optredes en werk as vryskut komponis. In 2008 aanvaar sy ‘n pos by Musieksentrum Monumentpark.
‘n Voorliefde vir teorie lei tot die gewilde “Teorie Pret-werkboek” -reeks wat tans uit 10 boeke bestaan. Die boeke is op aanvraag ook in Engels vertaal en word landwyd deur skole en instansies gebruik.
Haar grootste plesier is om te sien hoe kinders musiek geniet. Sy voel bevoorreg om ‘n rol te speel in ontwikkeling en opvoeding en hoop om in elkeen van haar leerlinge ‘n liefde en waardering vir die kunste te kweek.
BSM Publications was established in 2010.
Identifying a need in the market for fun Afrikaans music theory books for young beginners, the concept for the ‘Pret-werkboek’-series was born.
Initially comprising 4 theory books, the series expanded to include the current range of 10 theory books as well as 3 additional tutor, song, and activity books. By popular demand from book sellers and music teachers, the whole series was also translated into English.
We are also currently exploring and expanding our range into other fields such as sing-along books, while staying true to our vision of quality child education through music and play.
