South Kensington

An invaluable resource for Guildhall students and soloists performing at the Barbican, Chimes – at the base of Cromwell Tower, right next to the main entrance of the Barbican – has a large stock of sheet music, manuscript paper, reeds, strings, bows, mouthpieces, classical CDs, books and more. There’s also a limited selection of guitars (classical, acoustic, electro-acoustic) and ukes, plus rhythm instruments and novelty children’s items. The South Ken branch has more for-hire instruments, while the Academy Chimes, located at the Royal College of Music, stocks printed and examination music, but is a bit more of a tourist museum shop.
