Camberwell Choir School

Established in 1990, Camberwell Choir School (CCS) is a music and arts project for children and young people aged 0-18 in inner-city south London. The emphasis is on learning musical skills while having fun. Children, staff and volunteers all reflect the diversity of the local community, and we're proud to have as our patron international opera star Sir Willard White.

We particularly aim our sessions at children and young people who would not otherwise have the opportunity to access high quality music tuition, through cost or social exclusion. We charge just £1 for our sessions, including small group teaching on piano, guitar, violin, brass, tuned percussion and drums. By giving to us, you help over 100 children and young people gain confidence through playing and performing, acquiring musical skills that stay with them for life. There’s increasing evidence that learning music helps with wider schoolwork, too.
