- I wanted to learn to play the trumpet. I called several different musical instrument stores thinking that would be the best place to find lessons. I was right! I went in and met with the teacher and decided to start my lessons immediately. I am taking private lessons a half hour twice a week. Not only was I able to get lessons at this particular musical instrument store, but I was also able to purchase a trumpet at a great price. They had great used musical instruments at a fraction of the cost of a new one. I decided to start there. Once I get really good at playing, then I will treat myself to a new one.
- I'm a real treat for the simple instrument shop. These wild world sideshow music shops selling junk instruments drive me batty. There is a real market for good merchandise in the music world, but a crap instrument shop is a shame not quickly forgiven. I don't recommend nor buy junk goods from some circus instrument shop on the edge of being a flea market. Want quality musical equipment then buy the goods online or from a quality venue. Taking a junk show from some low rate biz is not a good idea.
- Any professional musician will tell you that keeping your instrument in good shape is essential if you want to prolong the life of the piece. Most musicians prefer to clean and maintain their instruments themselves; however there are shops that will clean and repair them for a fee. Any instrument that you blow into must be completely dried out after each performance. Guitars tend to be the most common instrument brought into the shop for repairs, it doesn't take much to restring a guitar and it can make a world of difference for the sound. If you have any doubts, it's always better to error on the side of caution and take it in to be looked at.
