Mr. Mikyle Padia
Programs Coordinator Benoit Academy of Steel Pan
Programmes coordinator of the Benoit Academy of Steel Pan. I am 23 years old. I attended Success Laventille Secondary School, St Joseph's Collage and Sixth Form Government where I studied Natural Life Sciences. I am currently perusing an Associate Degree in Chemistry will be completed it in September 2017. Despite my science background, I have been involved in steel pan and the arts from a young age. From the ages of 6 -10 I began learning the steel pan and although I did not continue to learn at a later age, my appreciation of the steel pan and by extension the arts started there. Later on, from ages 16 -23, I became further interested in the arts and joined the Eastern Youth Chorale in which i stayed a year and Anointed Characters Theatre Company where I still participate. It was in July 2014 when I joined the CEO, Mr. Brian Benoit, of the Benoit Academy of Steel Pan on this journey for the betterment of the steel pan industry.
