In spite of last year’s vote to extricate itself from mainland Europe, it was by a narrow margin, mind you, many Europeans and many more others from different parts of the world are still making their way to London. London remains one of the most cosmopolitan centers in the world. This is thanks to its ancient legacy which saw many fortune seekers heading off to London to make their fortune. The story of migration to London is a long one. And even today, these stories are not all good. Famous scribes of the classics could not have worded it better.
To many others that failed or only dreamed of someday making it to London, the images they got were of a gray, sooty and heavily polluted environment, not conducive to placid lifestyles familiar to artists. By the time the sixties rolled around, popular music combining all the modern genres of that century, made its name in London. Many musicians made their way to the city’s famous recording studios or music inclined cultural hubs and tried their luck at striking a chord with those who cared to listen. Some famous names made it big.
Many others followed throughout the years that followed this pivotal decade and made it big as well. Many more still fell by the wayside. It was always London calling, and it was always going to be a case of making it or breaking it. Today’s Londoners are in it for themselves. They already have their careers or businesses. One of the best ways to unwind is through the listening of favorite music genres, from good old fashioned eighties pop to hard core rock to the classical blues and jazz. Many Londoners would not mind learning how to play a favorite musical instrument today.
And today, they can. Lovers of the guitar now have their guitar lessons London bound. Today, there are dedicated centers available to city bound music and guitar lovers. These centers are run by professional guitarists and musicians and teachers whose only love is the music they specialize in and introducing all the learning packages and tools available to their willing students. Fine arts are elevated since new scholars have the benefit of one on one intimacy with their dedicated teachers. London life is always busy.
This is something the dedicated teachers and artists have come to appreciate. In fact, they are so dedicated; they have offered to give students lessons on any day of the week. So, now a young learner whose lessons at school are finished for the week can now pick up his guitar strings over the weekend. And ambitious song writers or lyricists who have to pipe their tunes at other places during the week, often over longer than usual working hours, can commit themselves to a couple of hours of guitar and song writing lessons.
It is London calling the music lover. And the guitar is calling the tune.
