Bel Air Music Studios

Located just north of Baltimore, MD the Bel Air Music Studios (BAMS) provides music instruction for piano, violin, and viola. With a goal of providing students with the highest quality private music instruction available in the greater Baltimore area, they have built a reputation as the premier private music school in the area for serious piano and violin students.

After moving into an expanded facility and bringing on board additional instructors, BAMS not only needed an enhanced web presence but a web based solution to automate scheduling, invoicing, and payments. As a result, Venture developed an integrated solution that leverages Freshbooks, PayPal, and our proprietary booking module. The result is a remarkably user friendly system that automates most of their monthly and semester invoicing while allowing students to register for trial lessons thanks to real time booking availability.
