DotsJust a couple of minutes from Camden Town tube station this harmonic haven is a convenient stop-off when faced with any dissonant difficulties.

The staff are an affable bunch of music enthusiasts who know their stuff. The smell of brewing coffee greets the visitor - everyone seems to be welcome to a mug to perk them up before rummaging through reams of sheet music, or testing that umpteenth flute.

They sell just about everything a musician might desire: instruments (new and second hand), sheet music, books, rosin, strings, accessories and more besides. If you’ve damaged your instrument, they can repair it; if you don’t have one, they can rent; if you can’t play it, they can hook you up with a tutor.

Dots provides one of the most comprehensive music services (with a smile) in London.
