Mandy Bell | Vocals & Mini Music Makers

Mandy Bell - Vocals and Early Years Spotlight

Mandy really can do it all. Any genre, any style, she’s got it covered. It’s come from many years of experience working in the industry as a lead vocalist and session singer.

Her credits list is very impressive… our own personal favourite being an appearance on Top of the Pops. But it doesn’t stop there. She’s played with the likes of Helen Shapiro, Mike and the Mechanics, The Moody Blues, Booker Newberry, INXS, The Fixx, Gloria Gaynor, Pulp.. the list goes on. She also has an impressive teaching CV, working with numerous clients over the years.

Needless to say, we feel very lucky to have her here at BMA passing on her knowledge and inspiring our students.
