The story of Bentley Music Academy begins in 1975 when founder Mr. Phua Sin Loke opened his first music instrument store, Bentley & Co. on Masjid India in central Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Little did he expect that what began over 30 years ago, would one day turn into the largest music instrument retailer and distributor in the country and in turn launch the country's leading music school.
In 1981 Bentley Music acquired its own building in Jalan Bukit Bintang launching a super store with a 4-storey showroom. This store once claimed to be "the largest music store" in the country and became a landmark in its own right. Spread over four levels of retail space, it has everything a musician needs, making it a music mecca on a national and international level.
To this day Bentley Music continues to lead the way in music retailing and continues to adapt itself to the demands of the music market with a 20,000-square-foot Mega Store located within its new building in 2008 at Mutiara Damansara. It is in this building that Bentley Music Academy is located.
At the heart of Bentley Music Academy's success is Mr Phua's balanced philosophy offering quality unparalleled service for the benefit of the individual and the nation.
