The East London School of Music (ELSOM) was formed to provide affordable stimulating musical training platform of the highest standard to music students of all levels and all ages. We cater for ages from 5 years all the way to adult. Our relaxing and supportive environment allow Students and Tutors to flourish and work together to develop and enhance everyone's musical abilities, including composition and performance. We aim to ensure that children, young people and adults are given the opportunity to be creative whilst learning the proper way to play an instrument, become a singer and/or become composers in their own right.

At ELSOM we ensure that all students receive high quality classical music tuition. Our school is a non-profit musical organization, therefore you will not be paying huge amounts of money, we keep our fees low and affordable for anyone wanting to learn a musical skill. Our primary aim is to give students quality musical training that is both affordable and enjoyable.
