About Us

Following the unveiling of our new studio facility in January 2015, we are delighted to introduce the Bell Music Academy. Offering some of the best instrumental teaching in the UK, the Academy will run six days a week to inspire a generation of blossoming musicians and unlock the potential in those who didn’t think they had it or never thought they could. Spread over eight individual practice spaces, the Bell Music Academy will also uniquely use their larger spaces to bring the students together to collaborate and experiment. Our world class teachers look forward to meeting, encouraging and stimulating any eight to eighty year old, or older to join a world of creativity and sound that is unique to those who play.

We tailor our lesson plans completely around you

Lessons

BASS

Bass lessons are available for all ages and abilities covering most popular styles. Lessons are tailor-made for the individual student, based on requirements. Topics covered include: understanding the role of the bass player, tuning the bass (by ear/with a tuner), familiarisation with the fretboard (finding and learning note positions – understanding the symmetry and mathematics of the fretboard), dampening techniques (playing single notes cleanly/avoiding the ringing of unwanted notes), introduction to the major scale, chromatic circle (a method of working out scales and chords), memorising finger positions, strengthening the hands and fingers (various exercises to build up stamina), introduction to the minor scale, learning extant bass lines (playing along with songs – working out musical arrangements), understanding modes, intervals and chords, studio recording techniques and using technology to help with study.

DRUMS

Our drum tuition covers all ages from complete beginners to advanced players. The student can never be too young or old to get started. Lessons are tailored to the student and their specific goals to ensure positive progress. All styles are covered from contemporary Pop, Rock, Funk, Jazz, Latin and World Rhythms. In addition, note values, sight reading, time-keeping, compound time signatures and working with click tracks and sequencers. Whether the student is looking to Jam with Daft Punk, Get Down with James Brown, play Cool Jazz with Miles Davis or Rock Out with AC DC, anything is possible once enrolled. Drumming can help improve concentration and co-ordination, boost self-confidence, relieve stress, aid relaxation and improve verbal, perceptual, numeric, spacial & motor skills

GUITAR

Guitar lessons are open to players of all abilities from beginners to intermediate and advanced. Guitar students can choose to learn genres including Blues, Rock, Jazz, Soul, Funk, and Fusion. Beginners will learn about chords, classic riffs, simple melodies and how to read music. Students can study the styles of Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, George Benson, Al Di Meola and Yngwie Malmsteen.  Basic techniques such as hammer ons, pull offs, string bending and vibrato will be studied in detail as these are essential elements of modern guitar playing and help to define the individual character of the player. The more advanced student will learn scales, arpeggios, string tapping, metal styles, chord progressions, picking techniques and complete songs.

KEYBOARD

Beginner students can expect to learn the fundamentals of piano technique and the basics of rhythm, melody and harmony including how to construct major and minor chords and counting and clapping rhythms.

 

We will teach more advanced students scales, chords progressions and songs/pieces from different genres of music including Jazz, Pop and Classical.

SAXOPHONE

Our saxophone lessons are suitable for children and adults of all ages from complete beginners to advanced players. Working with the student an appropriate repertoire is chosen based on which styles they are interested in.

 

The student will learn to build and develop a solid foundation in all aspects of playing the saxophone. The lessons follow structured courses using either the ABRSM standard classical grades or ABRSM jazz grades, which cover all aspects of saxophone playing & musicianship including reading & theory.

VOCAL

In our vocal lessons, students will learn about the voice as an instrument in a fun and exciting way. We will work to develop our singing technique with a range of exercises that are easy to practice at home and by getting the foundations right we can focus on expressing our musicality. Other exercises are aimed at freeing up the body and mind in order to focus on the music- making. Together with the student the appropriate repertoire is chosen based on which styles the student is interested in pursuing. These can be songs from Pop, R'n'B, Jazz and related styles and the student is encouraged to listen to and explore new repertoire to increase their musical knowledge. The student will learn about phrasing, stylistic awareness, how to interpret a song and make it their own, how to re-arrange songs for their own performance, as well as some basic harmony and scales that enhances their musical theory knowledge.
