About Us

BAM! is not a typical music school! The Bulverde Academy of Music, BAM!, is a unique music instructional facility located at 28152 HWY 281 in the Hill Country Square shopping area. We offer serious music lessons, with an emphasis on live performances in several genres.

At BAM!, our instructors are all accomplished professional musicians with a combined stage performance history that is decades long. Our curricula cover all spectrums of the live performance fields which include Bluegrass, Country, Western Swing, Rock, Jazz, Funk, Fusion and Orchestral/Classical. We offer music lessons that cover Violin, Viola, Cello, Electric Bass, Upright Bass, Drums and Percussion (Kit, Marching, Mallets), Piano, Guitar, Voice, Sax, Trombone, Tuba, Trumpet, Steel Guitar, Mandolin, Banjo, Dobro, Breakdown & Western Swing Fiddling. Along with applied live performance techniques, we teach harmony & music theory, composition and transposition.

Our Objective

The BAM! objective is to provide students with an individualized program designed to provide the best over-all advancement opportunities and that means being flexible rather than rigid in our approach. So, we teach by notation as well as playing by ear. We have developed teaching methodologies that combine the traditional with methods that are uniquely our own.

BAM! features our own String Orchestra, String Quartet, Horn Ensemble, Choir, Guitar Ensemble, Fiddle Group, Percussion Group and several Lab Bands in many genres (Bluegrass, Rock, Jazz, Big Band, Latin, etc.). Students are able to compete for positions in these groups.
