I have my young daughter being taught playing the guitar by Bill Allen. She finds him funny and really likes going every time. He is patient and keeps an eye on the things that matter. He is also quite reasonable to accommodate us when we wish to go on leave.
The guys in the shop are really good. They are very open, accommodating and knowledgable. They will take the time to explain whatever question one has with patience and enthusiasm.
Recently retired, I wanted something challenging and rewarding to do. Having never had the opportunity to take up a musical instrument, I decided to take Classical Guitar lessons with the South End Music School. My tutor is Steve Dunning, an accomplished musician and someone who loves his music and who directs and encourages me in my pursuit. Steve is now a good friend and excellent tutor and I am really enjoying my new found abilities which improve daily.
I would recommend the South End Music School to anyone.
Both my daughters have piano lessons with Billy (their tutor) whom I can’t praise enough. He is young and in touch with different ways to teach young children according to their ability and attention span. I have a very calm 6 year old and a wild 8 year old. He keeps both of them interested in learning and goes at their pace but pushes them to their full potential (without them realising it). My eldest has a short attention span but grasps piano quite easily, therefore he chose books that is interesting but not off putting. I am amazed and grateful for Billy’s patience as my daughter is not an easy student to teach! My youngest is going at a steady pace and I guess less challenging to teach. .
I was reluctant at first to invest in piano lessons for my girls as I played as a child and hated it. However, my girls have taken to it like ducks to water and look forward to their lessons with Billy. I also have gained a love for the piano and learn with them so it is something we get involved in as a family.
I think learning is a partnership between parent and teacher and Billy definitely supports me, my situation and I am so pleased they have found a love for music. Do not take my word for it though, book a lesson and see for yourself!

So far I have been attending lessons here for about eight weeks now. I am learning acoustic guitar with Mike, who is an excellent teacher.
While coming into this with the beginners perspective, I found the lessons to be very constructive and confidence building.
You can learn a lot in a half hour and I tend to enjoy my self set homework to try to master the new things I am being taught.
Mike is very patient and calm which is lovely, a genuinely amiable person who seems to be very at one with the guitar.
The best part is that the lessons are tailored to you, what you want to achieve and how you want to progress, even what you intend as an outcome is taken into account.
I’ve already raved and recommended lessons at the South End Music School to a few friends- often when I get home from my lessons ecstatic about something I’ve learned that week.
Staff are extremely friendly, warm atmosphere, and my daughter enjoys her class with Billy. Rupinder Mullins

My daughter has singing lessons with david he is a great teacher and my daughter loves going there.
For years I drove by this music school and each time I promised myself I would drop in and sign up for guitar lessons. Earlier this year I actually did and I have not regretted it since. My tutor, Billy, is brilliant; he’s patient, supportive and makes learning fun. The rest of the team (Joe and Steve) are just as helpful and willing to advise you according to your needs. I definitely recommend Southend Music School for all your musical needs. You will not be disappointed.
