Coventry has a fantastic music scene, and is a great city in which to catch some live acts. Our tutors here at Piano Lessons Coventry always encourage their students to check out the music venues in the city, for they find that seeing live performances provides the best inspiration and encouragement for their students own piano playing. Coventry has some great music venues on offer so our tutors have put together their favourites, so keep an eye out for your favourite musicians!

Coventry Central Hall may be home to a church, but it also plays host to a wide variety of concerts throughout the year. Despite having opened 80 years ago, the venue has top of the range equipment on hand, so you will find great sounding live music here.

The Tin Music and Arts is relatively new on the Coventry music scene, but has sprung up as one of the best venues in Coventry for acoustic acts. They formerly ran music events at the Tin Angel, so have truly been based in Coventry for over a decade. They are a strong supporter of local acts, so it is a great place to come to see local talent and to get inspiration for your own music. However it is not just confined to local musicians, for they also attracts some bigger names on the acoustic scene. At the Tin Angel, they were the first venue in the UK to host Jose Gonzales. This is set to continue with The Tin Music and Arts. But it is not just acoustic music—the venue also plays host to jazz and folk artists, and constantly seeks play host to more unique events.

The Arches is the perfect place in Coventry for a relaxed evening with friends whilst also enjoying great live music.
