 BMS Testimonials

‘The things we love about Bellchambers Music School are the flexibility to accommodate my family’s needs for different times, for my kids not being oriented to exams or theory, central location with easy free parking (and good coffee nearby for mum :-). Cheaper class option for early years. Some really great positive teachers. A few were particularly supportive with my eccentric kids (Beth and Alex, and in the distant past, Geoffrey (he was so patient and flexible and easy going and encouraging)). And we like lessons at a central venue, so we don’t have to have our house looking presentable and the rest of the family quiet, or go a long way across town to a teacher’s house.’
Melissa (Mother and student)

‘Michelle Klemke is a brilliant and very encouraging teacher. Michelle really knows her stuff. I loved the opportunities to perform, do AMEB exams and record songs. ‘
