While PBE is primarily a contemporary music school, we have always been pleased to associate our brand identity with all forms of art because it enhances and harmonizes with our musicality, our teaching methodology and our eccentric style of free expression.

It is such an honor to have had Chen Xiuhuan enroll her 3  lovely children with us at PBE (Bugis). A veteran in the local media industry, she gained tremendous popularity in the 80s and 90s alongside the "Queens of Mediacorp", Zoey Tay And Fann Wong. Starring in over 30 dramas over the course of her impressive career, she is best known for her role in the local drama, "Star Maiden" in 1988.
