Brighton Music Teachers by Instrument

Support Brighton's cultural tradition
Our continuing strength in music and the arts is reflected in both quality of performance and frequency of Concerts/Recitals in venues such as Chapel Royal in North Street, St Nicholas's Church in Dyke Road, St Bartholomew's Brighton in Ann Street, St Luke's Church, Queens Park Road and All Saints Church in The Drive, Hove.

Local shops selling musical instruments
The city is fairly well served by music shops specialising in guitars and drums of many types. There are fewer shops selling a complete range of brass, woodwind, piano/keyboard, folk, and stringed instruments, though there are a number of violin-makers living nearby.

Click here for a list of local retailers and specialist music shops in other parts of Sussex, including the instruments they sell.
