Online Learning

We're excited to be learning in new ways, focusing on, and appreciating music even more. The strength of our almost 100-year BMS teaching tradition comes from emphasizing the importance of student-faculty interactions and effective teaching methods that help our students learn and enjoy music.

A good student-teacher relationship is essential to a positive and productive music-learning experience. Each BMS student is matched with a teacher based upon learning style, experience, and musical interests, to ensure that you receive the best personalized instruction to build your skills, appreciation, and enjoyment of music.
