Alan Barclay

Alan Barclay entered the music industry as a salesman, which is where his love of the industry developed. In 2003 he opened Absolute Music, an instrument retail store in England that incorporates a host of special services for his customers, helping set his store apart from his online competitors. Alan introduced a coffee bar in the lobby, so parents did not need to leave the store while their child took lessons. His store also provides instrument repair services as well as a full line of programs and special events including the MIA’s Learn to Play Day. In 2016, Alan acquired BAMM (Bournemouth Academy of Modern Music), a thriving further education music college for teenagers. Then in 2017 he launched The Absolute Music Trust, a charity dedicated to enriching lives through music.
