“Music enhances the education of our children by helping them to make connections and broadening the depth with which they think and feel. If we are to hope for a society of culturally literate people, music must be a vital part of our children’s education.”


I lost the tremolo arm for my electric guitar, and had tried searching online as well as stopping in at the ‘chain’ stores, none of whom seemed to have what I needed. So I figured I’d give this local shop a call and see if they could help.

They asked me to bring in the guitar so they could match it up, and within a few minutes I was on my way with exactly what I needed. On top of that, the staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and obviously passionate about music.

Lesson learned — I’ll be checking here FIRST from now on.”
