South London Music caters for the needs of all levels of musician, ranging from a baby's first introduction to music (CDs, percussion), to music students of all levels (starters to grade 8 and beyond), professional musicians (teachers, performers) and enthusiasts of all varieties. We aim to go the extra mile to help you find what you need.

Based in East Dulwich, the areas of Dulwich, Camberwell, Peckham, and Forest Hill are local to us. We have good links with the local music teachers and schools, who we supply with instruments and music. We are in an excellent position to advise on buying the best instrument for your child, and the selection of exam music etc. We stock over 10,000 titles of sheet music and keep popular items in stock. In addition we order weekly from over 100 suppliers, so are well placed to source obscure items if we do not have them already.
