Bellingham Music Centre relies on the dedication of a team of young pianists led by their piano teacher Alex Cockle, pictured above.
The team of young piano teaching staff have all studied classical piano music for between five and ten years with Alex and are now in the advanced stages of the Royal School of Music Piano Exams.
Children and young adults really enjoy learning piano from mentors who are in some cases just a few years older.
It gives young students a great sense of purpose and direction to know that in a short time they too could be playing the piano and perhaps one day teaching in the same way after completing their music grade exams.
Piano lessons at Bellingham Music Centre continue to grow in popularity and music tuition is certainly a recession beater. By channelling the most precious thing we all have, time, into a growing investment for the future, musical education, we are all winning!

Brief Local History of New Cross
The area of New Cross used to be known as Hatcham, an ‘Anglo-Saxon name meaning’Hacci’s Village. Another possible meaning is ‘the village in the clearing by the woods’. In the eighteenth century, travellers who wanted to pass through the road were required to pay tolls at the turnpike gates. The particular gate at Hatcham was called New Cross Gate after a local public house named the New Cross Inn which stood nearby. The land was bought in 1614 by the Haberdashers Company. The company developed the land by building houses and by founding a boys’ and girls’ grammar school there, the money was provided by a charity founded initially by Robert Aske.
