Lewisham Council - After school music groups

After school music groups

Our after school groups are ideal for children and young people who wish to develop their instrumental skills or singing. They will have the opportunity to play or sing with other young people in a supportive environment and work towards performing in local festivals and projects as well as with our partner organisations.
