Who Are We?


Lewisham Music is a music education charity and the Music Education Hub for the London Borough of Lewisham, supported by funding for Arts Council England.  We deliver, support and promote a broad range of music education opportunities for children and young people both within schools and in the community.

Our Hub network comprises partner organisations including The Albany, London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Lewisham Education Arts Network, Midi Music Company, Phoenix Community Housing and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance. We became an independent charity in 2017,


In June 2019 we moved into new premises at The Fellowship, Bellingham, a new cultural centre which includes a cinema and live music, theatre and comedy venue. Providing learning opportunities to young people and supporting music education in schools across the borough remains a key part of our mission, however our new base gives us a fantastic opportunity for us to expand our offer and the communities with which we engage, creating a vibrant hub for music-making in Bellingham and beyond.
