Brandon M. Caten
Since a very young age, Brandon M. Caten has known it was his calling to help others grow. His willingness to stay after long days of school and help others excel in music built the foundation that helps him succeed today. As a recent graduate of the University of South Alabama, Brandon received a B.A. in Liberal Studies with a focus in Communications, Education, Music, and Theatre. He is continuing his education at his alma mater with a Masters in Educational Administration this Fall.
He is the past President of the Azalea Chapter of Mortar Board, the Premier Senior College Honor Society and is currently the Section Coordinator of Section 5, Alabama & Florida. His name can be found on the President’s list at South Alabama, as well as on the member list for Who’s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities. Before his graduation, Brandon was invited to become a member of Lambda Pi Eta, the Communications Honor Society.
To say that Brandon was very active on his campus is an understatement. He excelled as the Social Media Coordinator for the Office of New Student Orientation, and was featured in numerous recruiting videos for South Alabama. He also served as the Vice President of the Communication Association and as the Assistant Director of their annual fashion show. Additionally, Brandon was seen as the center judge on the local show JagIdol.
After being active at South Alabama, Brandon continues to find time to give back to the performing arts community of Mobile. He serves as the Artistic Director at the Azalea City Center For the Arts, where he teaches music, dance, acting, stage makeup and costume design. As the most sought-after voice instructor for school-age children in the area, he owns The Studio, Mobile's Premier Voice Studio For Children, where he teaches private lessons to over 25 students who have consistently landed leads and won awards & recognition across the state.
When Brandon is offstage and away from his studio, he is busy working with his second love: social media. His internship with SouthBound Orientation allowed him to gain knowledge with social media platforms, a project that ultimately turned into a job. His project he calls #ACCAMobile tracked the rebranding of the Azalea City Center For the Arts, using social media to expand their digital presence and increase business for The Center.
