In 1984, three ladies started a music school with the name "Triad Music School." It was born right where we are now at 81st and Harvard in Tulsa Oklahoma. It stayed there for two years before moving to Broken Arrow in 1986 and changing its name to "Broken Arrow School of Fine Arts." For years, they influenced the Broken Arrow area with their musical and artistic abilities. They grew and became very popular right before hard times hit.
In the early 1990's, Iraq invaded Kuwait causing oil prices to skyrocket. An economic crash hit the United States and heavily impacted "Broken Arrow School of Fine Arts" causing them to loose many students. They tried for years to bounce back, but they were still going under.
Dr. Alice Brook came on the scene in 1993 and settled on an agreement in which she bought all of the shares of "Broken Arrow School of Fine Arts." She managed it for a year before deciding that in order for the school to survive, it needed to be rebranded. In 1994, she moved it back to its birth place in South Tulsa and changed its name, bringing "Brook Fine Arts Academy" into existence.
It was a monumental success. People came from all over Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Jenks, and Owasso to enroll in this fresh and new fine arts school. Dr. Brook and her husband remodeled what is now the current location.
After years of owning the academy, Dr. Brook decided she wanted to spend more focus on real estate. She had time to teach, but not enough time to keep the business running. In 2018, she decided to sell the business to Pamela Prescott as director and Jeffery Prescott as co-owner. Jeff and Pam Prescott decided that the facility need some major changes to keep up with the times and gave it huge renovations.
Jeff and Pam completely reworked one of the recital halls giving it new flooring, fresh paint, and an artistic look on the ceiling. They expanded the art program and started to offer more advanced courses. Their daughter-in-law Brianna noticed that parents and students waiting could be catered to more by providing refreshments, so a "Brook's Fine Coffee" was added to serve hot and cold beverages and snacks.
Today, "Brook Fine Arts" continues to provide Tulsa with the highest quality and most experienced music and art education with exceptional focus on each and every student. The only reason "Brook Fine Arts" is still going is because it is driven by a belief. The belief that every single living soul has it in them to be something amazing inside just waiting to be discovered and given the opportunity to express itself. The simple idea that anyone can rise above the rest and do something extraordinary. The conviction that , no matter who you are, Everyone Great has a Beginning.
As a family owned and operated business, we know that family comes first above all else. We know that children are the most valuable assets to the future of our world. That is why we above and beyond to find the best teachers, so you don't have to.
We want to make it as easy as possible for anyone to secede. We find that one time that works perfectly for all of your children to take their lessons at the same time. We help people brave the fear of performing, the fear of learning something new, the fear of thinking they're not good enough. We help every student that they have what it takes to perform, to learn, and to be so much more than just "good enough." We help every student find the beginning to their greatness.
It has been proven time and time again that an understanding of the fine arts increases brain function and improves critical and independent thinking skills. People who practice piano build more physical connections in their brain. Children who have trouble focusing gain increased attention span when they start practicing art. It is clear that being in the fine arts pushes creativity and balances the brain, yet the first thing to go when schools get a budget cut is the fine arts. That is why it is our mission to expose everyone, young and old, to the fine arts. The future of tomorrow is built on the skills and actions of today.
