Have been with BM since 2012. Never thought I could make this far from Acoustic Guitar to Electric Guitar with a crazy schedule as a full time working mum & a wrist ligament injury. Thanks to all the wonderful staff at BM for their care during my anxious & difficult time wondering if I could play guitar anymore. Special thanks to the customer service executives for their kind patience attending to my phone calls & counter queries (yes indeed I believe I was maddening :-P) Thank you for taking me higher every lesson. It is simply a wonderful experience to be at BM journeying with a team of committed coaches & staff.
Just want to share my experiences during the electric guitar and voice classes. Firstly, what I enjoy most is not the technicalities but the short devotion on the word of God. It reminds me to put God first above all things. Secondly, though I have been a musician for 8 years, God has humbled me to learn and to have a teachable heart. And that's what keeps me looking forward to each lesson i.e.what God is going to teach me. God Bless :-)

Is it FUN?
You'll get to meet people who share the same passion. Learning to play a musical instrument is highly rewarding because it leads to growth in a music-spiritual dimension. Learning to play the electric guitar is more than fun. It's life changing. We all know of people around us whom we think have successfully learnt to play the electric guitar reasonably well. With practice, this skill will stay and enrich not only your lives but also the lives of people and family around you (and generations to come). For many of us who are just starting to pick up this unique skill, believe that the journey is well worth it.
How is the Electric guitar different from the Classical and Acoustic guitar?
Classical and Acoustic guitars are able to produce sound from its own body, while the Electric guitar uses electro-magnetic pickups (transducers) that converts energy produced by the vibrating guitar strings into electrical impulses that is fed to an amplifier. The amplifier then magnifies these pulses many times before the loudspeaker transforms them back into sound waves. Because of the mechanics involved, the electric guitar is able to produce a variety of sounds that the classical and acoustic guitar is limited to.
