Find Us

Bell Music Academy is based in custom-built (by us!!!) units inside Magenta Storage in South Acton. We’re really proud of what we’ve created in there and think it’s the ideal facility to teach and learn.

Our HQ is also very easy to get to, however you’re travelling. Let us elaborate…

Car Icon

By car...

Bell Music Academy is conveniently located very close to the M4/A4, North Circular and a little further (but still not far) from the A40, so we are easy to get to via car.

Train Icon

By train...

We are served by two tube stations, both a 10 minute walk from the studios. Acton Town is on the Piccadilly and District Lines and Chiswick Park is also on the District Line. We also have South Acton Overground Station less than a 5 minute walk from us, which is on the Richmond-Stratford line.
Bus Icon

By bus...

There are a number of bus routes that run close to us. The closest of which would be the 440, which runs right past us along Bollo Lane. But the following routes also come within walking distance.

237, 267, 391, H91, E3, 70

Kind words from our current students...

Pat Testimonial



I have gained confidence as a drummer with Anna's expert tuition. She has provided me with goals to work towards at every stage so that I know I am making progress.

We've worked on different styles and I have found myself achieving more than I would have thought I could! I would highly recommend the teaching style and content.

Maya Testimonial



I’ve improved my guitar techniques, rhythm and picking; but not only that, I’ve gotten a better understanding of my instrument by learning to sight-read and discussing its history with my teacher.

I’ve really enjoyed my lessons since I had the freedom to choose the type of music that I want to play and learning how to play those songs.


Neill Ettridge | Drums

Neil Ettridge - Drums Spotlight

Neill really has done it all. Born in London but has travelled far and wide and played with some incredible artists. He is now back in London passing on his wealth of knowledge to you with us at BMA.

Neill’s credits include Director and Principal of the DrumLab SA group of training studios, house band member for the popular Idols TV series 1-6, Shell Road to Fame & JerrySpringer’s Saturday Night Band. He was also the drummer for South Africa’s most iconic band, Mango Groove.

Neill’s knowledge, as you can imagine, stretches far beyond just playing the drums. Looking to form a long and prosperous career as a drummer? Then look no further.
