If you are looking for guitar lessons in Lewisham then there is an ideal solution just a bus ride away. Any bus headed for Bromley will be enough just remember to get off the bus at Catford Bus Garage! It is only a five minute walk from there along Randlesdown Road to Bellingham Music Centre.
Many people start lessons with an acoustic guitar at home and get an electric guitar at a later stage of learning to play. Call 020 8185 7368 to book lessons.
Bellingham Music Centre crosses that boundary between private guitar lessons and guitar lessons at school. The guitar lessons provided by the centre are of exceptional quality and are a good example of what young musicians are capable of.
The centre is run by a dedicated group of musicians who have all been taught using the same method, group guitar tuition. Their conviction is unshakeable and their drive and dedication also exemplary. It is certainly something which children admire whilst learning to play the guitar as some of their mentors are just a few years older!
All staff at the centre are in the advanced stages of studying The Royal College of Music exam programmes and some of the older staff have been playing for over ten years already. Certainly worth dropping in if you or your child have an interest in studying classical guitar or learning to play the guitar generally.
If you are thinking of booking lessons or would like more information, you may call the Bellingham Music Centre on 020 8185 7368
If you haven’t been to Bellingham recently, it is still a lively area with a bustling high street. Many cafes and handy local amenities to keep parents busy while the children are having their guitar lessons.
Brief Local History of Lewisham
The original village of Lewisham stretched along Lewisham High Street the ancient parish church of St Mary. The name Lewisham derives from ‘Old English’ Ham, meaning a village. The first part of the name comes from the name of a person, possibly by the name of Leof or Leofsa’s village. Poet James Elroy Flecker (1884-1915) originates from Gilmore Road. Walter de la Mare (1873-1956) was another famous Lewisham resident who was said to live in Brookbank Road in the 1880’s.
