Instruments
Most folks have embraced the buying (and selling) of musical instruments online. Even before the internet, we were never all that much of a source for musical instruments. (We did sell our share of guitars back in the day, though). Today, we focus more on renting instruments and even loaning instruments to students enrolled in our lesson programs. We no longer stock very many guitars or even "miscellaneous" instruments, although we do sometimes keep things like harmonicas and recorders, as well as percussion instruments like tambourines, claves, egg shakers, and triangles on hand. Percussion accessories include sticks, mallets, drum heads and mufflers, practice pads, hardware accessories, etc.
Call or email us regarding specific availability.

Print Music
Many of you may recall that we used to stock the area's largest selection of print music.
Due to the poularity of online commerce, we are no longer able to stock as wide a variety of print music and instruction books. However, since we are moving away from keeping so much print music on hand, much of what we have available is drastically reduced in price. We may also be able to special order or "print on demand" some specific pieces of music. Please feel free to come take a look around, or call us regarding specific availability.

Special interest categories that we still have some examples of in stock include Broadway vocal selection books and scores, operatic scores, symphonic and vocal scores, and study scores. Collections of art songs, arias, and vocal training books are also available. Additionally, we have special sections for children's music including easy, big-note, and five finger piano books. Suzuki books & recordings are also available.

We have lots of "fake" books (jazz, rock, classical, wedding, etc), including C, B-flat, E-flat, and bass clef books. We also carry collections of various types of folk and ethnic music.


We stock books for music lessons on practically all instruments:
Piano Lesson Books
Guitar Lesson Books
Violin Lesson Books
Drum Lesson Books
Sax Lesson Books
Etc, etc, etc!
