BMT started in 2005 when founder Sam Blake rode his bike to visit students in their homes to give guitar lessons. Back then it was a paper pocket book map, CDs and books, all bookings done in a paper diary…

Fast forward to 2021 and we now run a team of wonderful teachers and admin staff to spread the joy of making kids feel awesome through playing music. 

Our teaching philosophy is all about giving students a great lesson experience so they have fun, build confidence and form identity through music.

Teachers use a framework to teach core knowledge, often through a gamified teaching method. We have music programmes written for each instrument, work towards exams, as well as teaching a tailored programme around the student’s musical tastes and goals.
All students are given access to their own exclusive online portal, where all their lesson notes, videos and sheet music are stored for access anywhere, anytime. This portal also manages all of your billing, scheduling and email/phone support – all in one easy place!
Our teachers are qualified at university/college level and have passed grade 8 at their first instrument. They are DBS cleared and trained to teach to the BMT Standard. We are also a Wiltshire Music Connect organisation.
