One of London’s Oldest Music Shops
shop in eltham
Welcome to Normans Music, one of London’s longest established music shops. We are a general music shop situated in Eltham, South East London, since 1914. We stock a large range of musical instruments, printed music, accessories and gifts. Repairs are undertaken on many instruments, as well as guitar set-ups and restringing. We are here to offer advice on our products before and after purchase.
Normans Music prides itself on the personal touch, and even in these difficult times we welcome visitors to the shop. However due to Covid restrictions, we are limiting numbers in the shop so you may have to wait in our sheltered shop-front area for a few minutes.

Although Normans Music has been in existence for over a hundred years, David and Claire bought the shop in October 2016.
David, Claire and their daughter, Siân are all brass musicians. Belonging to three music groups, they are actively playing during the week and can sometimes be seen on bandstands during the summer!
David plays trumpet in Gravesend Borough Band and Synchordia, with Flugel horn as his instrument in Meopham Brass.
Claire and Siân play French horn in Gravesend Borough Band and Synchordia, but Tenor horn with Meopham Brass.
Our musical pastimes
Synchordia was formed in 2009 by Nicholas Downs and has grown in to a community group of musicians to include a choir called Synchordia Singers and also a Saxophone Quartet. Starting with less than 20 players, it has grown in to an ensemble of over 30 and a choir of up to 20. Synchordia has players and singers aged from 7 to 70.
