Student Reviews

Colorado Springs, CO

Brad Bietry and Broadmoor Academy of Music has provided me with a great foundation to playing. I made All-State Jazz Band 2 years in a row and also won first place in the Pikes Peak Jazz And Swing Society Scholarship Competition. With his weekly instruction and weekly jazz combo instruction, I have become a musician. I highly recommend studying with Brad Bietry at BAM for all serious music students!!!
