at Bhardwaj Music Academy, we believe music is not only a skill, but also an attitude towards life, a way of thinking, a method to express, and a companion along the journey. Through music, people discover themselves; through listening, people understand each other: music brings people together. Based on these beliefs, BMA won’t only be focusing on techniques, but also on keeping and developing student’s passion, discovery and communication. We create a customized lesson program that will ensure maximum results at a pace that works best for student’s goal.

What we really love is hearing our students find and develop their own individual "voices" on their chosen instruments - that is what the art of improvising is all about. We also enjoy the challenge of figuring out how each student thinks and learns, and how we can help them achieve their goals. It's a true joy to guide others on their musical path.

We had a great experience with Mr. James from BMA. My daughter needed a professional to prepare her for high school auditions and we really appreciated his lessons and help with the audition process!

Samantha is fabulous to learn with and is great at sharing her vocal with a variety of skill levels. I have taken a private lesson and participated in a group experience as well. She has a strong sense about how to explain the lessons and put the process into terms that works best for the individual. I would highly recommend her for vocal/piano. She’s fabulous!! Thanks to BMA.

Jeremy from BMA is an amazing instructor. He understands how to teach fundamentals of piano while at the same time making it fun, engaging, and challenging. His program of study has significantly helped my sons self esteem - to where he sees a piano and just sits down to play - because he loves it! The way Jeremy has encouraged the students to use mixed media in his Music Alive! program is just so cool. The students thrive and grow and love tackling challenges. These are all skills we want our kids to have when they are adults, right? And, Jeremy has found a way to help that growth happen through the piano. We couldnt be more thrilled with the progress our son has made with Jeremy as his instructor. All thanks to Bhardwaj Music Academy for providing us the best instructor.

Frequently asked questions

When we begin with a new student we ask them a few questions to determine their goals. Then we create a plan and explain how we'll meet the goals. Typically, we utilize several methods and select the method that best suits the student. All of our students are taught in variety of Technic (scales and chords) classical and contemporary repertoire, music theory, sight reading and ear training.

We take our hiring process seriously. We only hire qualified, dedicated & the best. All of our instructors are professional, talented, qualified, friendly, calm and dedicated to teaching. We background check every instructor before they teach a single lesson/program. We take safety and professionalism very seriously!

We aim to keep our prices as affordable as possible while still maintaining the highest level of educational ethics possible. In an effort to reduce prices, we offer a multitude of discounts. Contact us to get a price quote!

We have worked with students from age 5 to 80! This has included beginners and advanced students, recreational players, college students, people who just wanted to learn to play a song or two, students trying to get into a conservatory, and many more. We also have experience teaching children with special needs including Autism and ADHD. 

The key factors in a successful relationship between student and teacher is understanding each others expectations and managing those expectations.  In addition, students must make a commitment to practice. 

We would say the most important thing is to find someone you gel with- that makes you feel excited to play/ sing, and that makes you feel happy and confident. Nothing can kill joy like a negative attitude, or feeling of insecurity. Look for a teacher that can pivot if something is not working.
