To all customers:

Back in 2008, I had realized my dream of opening a music store—a dream I’ve had since I was 13 years old. Over the subsequent eight years, I had a blast working with students, customers, and fellow teachers alike. I can say every day was an adventure in and of itself, and I am truly grateful for all the friends I’ve made along the way.

As they say of all good things, they must eventually come to an end. The music business landscape has become increasingly difficult to navigate and due to a slowdown in business over the past few years, we have decided to close our doors permanently on December 17th, 2016.

Please keep in mind that many of our talented instructors will continue teaching in the area. For instructor contact information, please see “Recommended Teachers” in the above menu.

Our long-standing relationship with our partner, Music & Arts, will continue into 2017 and beyond, and we will continue to offer in-school service to the Northampton Area School District. If you are renting an instrument, please see our FAQ on this site.

Thank you for your business over the past eight years. I appreciate all of your support and will never forget the wonderful experience of serving your musical needs.
