Who We Are

Serving Northern California for over 23 years.

May 19th, 2019, was officially declared B#Sharp Academy Day by the Honorable Mayor Harry T. Price of Fairfield, as this date commemorates the Academy's 20 years of service to the community. 

B#Sharp Academy strives to instill musical appreciation, confidence, & build self-esteem in each and every student. Our mission is to change lives forever, one note at a time with a spirit of excellence through the influence of music.

Founded by Dr. Rosalin Pugh, her dream of opening her own music school was fulfilled in May of 1999 where she started “B#Sharp Academy”, a school of the Arts, and serves as CEO and curriculum advisor. 

​Dr. Rosalin Pugh has a gift of communication through music. Being from a family of gifted musicians, she realized her musical abilities at a very young age and set out to hone her skills through more musical training.  She received her Music Degree (double major in Piano & Voice) as well as Honorary Doctorate of Ministry while still teaching students which has been about 4 decades now.  She is also an established Recording Artist and adds to her credits, back up singing for Celine Dion and a duet on her latest CD, with the legendary Lenny Williams on the song she wrote, "Because of Your Love".   

"When God calls us to do His will, He calls us to B#Sharp, to perform in excellence.  B#Sharp to encourage, B#Sharp to teach the music to the ones He's chosen for you to instruct to B#Sharp! "
