Brick by brick, we bring music to life!
The Musical Brick is a unique business that specialises in designing and building custom music-themed sets using Lego bricks. From miniature pianos to entire stages, we create a wide range of sets that are sure to delight and inspire both young and old.
One of the standout features of Musical Brick is the focus on creating custom minifigures and models inspired by some of the our favourite artists and musicians. We have gained particular recognition from a variety of artists. These have not only included our Lego versions of the weird and wonderful costumes of Peter Gabriel, but also picture covers on albums and a music video!
The business really took off in 2014 when Real World Studios contacted us in regards to the Bat-Wings minifigure. Since then, the team at Musical Brick has been hard at work designing and prototyping a wide range of costumes and other music-themed sets. We are proud to have the endorsement of Peter Gabriel, who is a fan of the unique designs.
“As someone who has spent a lot of time making Lego with all my four kids, though not as much as my wife, it was a treat to see some of the characters I portrayed immortalised into Lego figures.” – Peter Gabriel (Uncut, September 2020, p. 71)
In addition to the custom minifigures and models, Musical Brick also offers a range of other music-themed sets, including miniature pianos, drum sets, and entire stages. These sets are perfect for music lovers of all ages, and are sure to spark creativity and imagination.
Overall, Musical Brick is a one-of-a-kind business that brings together the worlds of music and Lego in a truly unique and creative way. From the custom minifigures to the music-themed sets, there is something for everyone at Musical Brick.

Musical Brick Founder
I have always been a huge fan of both music and Lego bricks, and I have always loved the idea of combining the two in creative and innovative ways. That’s why I started Musical Brick – to share my love of music and Lego bricks with others, and to inspire and delight both young and old with my unique and imaginative sets.
One of my biggest inspirations for my work at Musical Brick has been the music and costumes of Peter Gabriel. From the iconic flower headdress to the striking bat wings, Gabriel’s costumes have provided endless inspiration for my Lego creations.
