About Us

We believe music is for all!

Bell Music Academy is a community school offering music lessons in West London to students of all ages and abilities.

We’re very lucky to have multi-percussionist Lauren Kosty at the helm and we’re proud to have a staff of professional tutors who perform regularly in venues throughout London and the UK when safe to do so. Our teachers offer 1 to 1 tuition on drums, percussion, guitar, bass, singing, beginners piano, and early years.

Just a 5-minute walk from Piccadilly, District and Overground lines, BMA is easy to get to from anywhere in West London including Hammersmith, Chiswick, Kensington, Acton, Ealing, Richmond & Kew.

The academy is spread across 2 contemporary studios and a reception area. Each room is sound isolated and kitted with professional instruments and equipment for use during lessons.

A word from the boss

At Bell Music Academy we hope you’ll find the means to explore, create and enjoy making music. Every one of our teachers is a person whose life has been devoted to that very craft, and it starts with a moment of excitement at the idea of picking up an instrument and learning to play. We believe it’s important that all folks have that opportunity so… here we are! Ready to share our knowledge and enthusiasm for music-making with you.

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, students may enter through the designated “office” access to the left of reception. You will be given a key code for this purpose. Once the key code has been entered, the door will automatically open. 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. Please wait here for your teacher to collect you and begin your lesson.

TEACHER SPOTLIGHT

Anna Mylee | Drums & Piano

Anna Mylee - Drums and Piano

Anna really is the complete musician! Having moved to the UK from Belgium to study, then on the USA and beyond. Thankfully for us, she is now back in London and passing on her wealth of knowledge and skills to our lucky students.

On her travels Anna has learned from some of the best. Mark Schulman (P!NK) and Kenny Arnoff (Paul McCartney, John Mellencamp) and the legendary Bruce Becker to name a few.

Anna has played just about every style there is. Now she focuses on her own project, the powerhouse of a band, Dorja and spends her time (whilst not teaching) recording and touring with the band.
