Bell Music Publishing
was formed in 2014 by Paul Thompson and Kevin Bell to bring the best new original and arranged music for bands and ensembles to discerning musicians who need fresh, well written pieces to thrill their audiences.
We have bright new stars, as well as seasoned professionals at the peak of their careers, and we want to introduce you to a range of music, from the traditional to the contemporary. In 2015 we launched our dedicated Jazz/Big Band and Brass Band/Brass Ensemble labels – Big Jazz Face and Marcato Brass respectively.
In 2016 we pooled all our music aimed at schools and developing musicians into a new website – Dotted Quaver, and in 2017 launched our orchestral catalogue.
Also in 2017 we began promoting our first third party publication – ‘Take-Off!’ a Beginner Band method by Jan Utbult. This was very quickly taken up by Charanga, the leading music education platform currently in the UK, and Take-off! has become one of the most used whole-class teaching method in the UK as well as being used extensively for individual instrumental tuition.
