Azores, former Treasurer of Olongapo City and the researcher‟s father, who never fails to inspire and extract the best out of his sons and grandchildren, immeasurable filial love cannot be compensated; To Bien Azores, the researcher‟s brother, who had in many ways extended his support while the study was in progress; To Johanssen and Jen Niccole Azores, his children for their love and motivation which rekindled the researcher‟s interest in completing this task; To Ericarl C. Belbar, who made the researcher realize that no support is so small especially for the cheers and provisions at times when the latter is lost; To the musicians in Olongapo City, who served as inspiration in conceptualizing the study‟s framework. As their peer in providing the best musical entertainment, the researcher shares their vision and aspirations to contribute to the economic development of the country; and To every person who have somehow touched the researcher‟s life, and who may have been missed to be mentioned, which only attest to the latter‟s limitations and humaneness. The Lord Jesus Christ has always been fulfilling, and most often been giving surprises in the life of the researcher. So, he is forever blessed and gratified. Indeed, “… all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28 New International Version).
