About the Tippett Music Centre


About the Centre
The Tippett Music Centre (TMC) is Lambeth Music Service’s flagship Saturday Music Centre, with over 350 members. It has become so popular that many classes now have waiting lists. TMC has a talented team of 20 music teachers and four pastoral staff managed by Chris Williams and the LMS. It also has a great café run by the Friends of TMC for parents and carers.

TMC is for beginners and experienced musicians from 3 to 18, in or out of Lambeth. While there is a progressive programme of music education, TMC offers prospective students many exciting choices, divided broadly into three categories:

  • Beginner classes (providing an introduction to music and instruments)
  • Instrumental lessons (in small groups with specialist teachers)
  • Ensembles (groups for experienced musicians who learn an instrument
    and have reached the required standard)

Reflecting Lambeth’s vibrant diversity, TMC caters for most orchestral and other instruments
  • string, brass, woodwind and percussion
  • keyboard, guitars, drums, voice, music technology/composition and Capoeira – a popular musical martial art from Brazil.
Ensembles include string and wind orchestras, steel pans, samba, choirs, folk bands, djembe and rock/pop bands.
