From lessons to live music events, we are more than just a shop

Our Riverdale room is one of the rooms we have available for hire

We’re not just a music shop! From Monday to Saturday, Core Music is filled with the sounds of people learning instruments and making music together. From one-to-one lessons with experienced tutors to weekly clubs playing all genres of music, there’s something for everyone here. We even have occasional one-off workshops and performances from leading musicians – recent examples include harmonica virtuoso Will Pound and gypsy jazz ensemble Swing Manouche with violinist Daniel John Martin.

If you’re planning your own event, meeting or daytime activity, we have several rooms available for hire, ranging from small teaching rooms – ideal for one-to-one sessions – to larger spaces capable of hosting groups and audiences of up to 40 people. Regardless of the room size, we charge £7 per hour for a room, with a small additional charge if you’d like to hire extras like a projector and/or screen.
Coffee, tea, soft drinks and sweets are always available, with payment on a donation basis.
