"Music is almost a side note. What BMF does is help kids develop confidence and grow as a human.”

- Jill, a Brooklyn Music Factory Mom 

Curious how BMF is different?  

Our students play gigs. 

We measure success by how many fun gigs our students play with one another, not by how far our students progress in a method book.

Game based learning

Game-based learning keeps our lessons fun and effective. Our lessons feel nothing like the traditional lesson.

Unique Lesson Architecture

We follow our own unique lesson architecture that challenges every student to use their ears before their eyes as they solve the puzzle of music.

"Your teachers are amazing and foster such a love and ownership of music and creativity. I love the whole staff. "

- Margi, a Brooklyn Music Factory Mom
