A word from the boss

Music education is our passion!

For all of us here at Bell, music has had a positive and transformative effect throughout our lives; it has been a constant source of creativity, fun, inspiration, and discovery. The only thing we love as much as making music is sharing what we have learned with our students!

No matter your age or musical experience, whether you are a musician looking to learn something new, you want to try a new instrument, or you have never taken music lessons, we want to help you reach your goals!


Davide Marini.

Our Facilities

BMA HQ is based at Magenta in Acton, West London. We have been incredibly lucky to be able to build our own bespoke rooms within their shiny, new building. All of which are air-conditioned and kitted out with top of the range, professional gear to ensure our students get the most out of their lessons.

Students are permitted to park in the Magenta car park after 5pm. In addition, street parking is free after 6pm Monday-Friday and anytime on weekends.

Upon arrival please meet your teacher at the designated “office” access located to the left of reception. Toilets are located on the right with lift and stair access on the left. Make your way up to the 5th floor and follow signs to Bell Music Academy.

Anango Testimonial



I am drumming to Jazz music with Lauren and it is great fun. Lauren is a wonderful teacher who makes the lessons very enjoyable. I love the classes and have been listening to and playing a lot of different songs. Thank you, Lauren.



Bell offers a great opportunity to explore pieces from across the repertoire and helps me to improve on my skills as a musician. The teachers are very friendly.
