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.
