Before joining the #BAMSQUAD I was literally flying by the seat of my pants, desperate for some guidance. I no longer have that constant feeling of anxiety about my business. I have a plan and know where I’m going.

I used to be stressed out talking about my school. I have learned to refocus and I am now in a more relaxed and balanced space. The #BAMSQUAD is the best investment you’ll ever make. I can’t speak highly enough about it.

When I joined the #BAMSQUAD I had 130 students, 6 months later we had grown to 230. My wife has noticed I’ve got my life back. It’s truly changed my family and my life.

The #BAMSQUAD is mind-blowing. It has drastically increased my customer numbers and student retention. I’ve been in a lot of music school programmes and this is head and shoulders above anyone else.
